Happy New Year and what's on in 2020?

The Collective Leadership team would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year 2020! The New Year starts with many exciting events within the Collective Leadership Community - most prominently the Fire Starter Festival (#FSF2020), launching on 27 January. Keep on reading to get all updates from the Collective Leadership Team. 

The Collective Leadership Strategy and Focus

Working and leading in times like these requires us to find new approaches to harness the skills and capacity from across our system to address the many complex issues we face. The revised National Performance Framework provides a compelling case for us to draw together everything we know about how best to work together to deliver deeply inter-related outcomes. With this in mind, our Collective Leadership for Scotland Strategy was developed through widespread engagement with partners over 2019 and has been confirmed around the themes of:

  • Growing our Ability to Work in Complex Systems
  • Building our Capacity for Collective Leadership
  • Sparking Creativity and Innovation
  • Working out Loud and Sharing our Story 
  • Connecting the System to More of Itself

Fire Starter Festival sits at the heart of our strand on 'Sparking Creativity and Innovation' and is an opportunity to ignite a wide array of new creative and innovative activity, and to see where that takes us.

There are many other aspects to 'Sparking Creativity and Innovation' that we will be working with you to support as we grow and develop this area of work, which feels more necessary than ever before. In our forward planning for 2020 we will pursue some particular inquiry questions and an important one of these, aligning intimately with the Fire Starter Festival, is: “How can the arts and creativity support system change?”
