Authors: Westin, M., Calderon, C. & Hellquist, A. (eds.)

The Inquiry Based Approach (IBA) has been developed to facilitate multi-stakeholder collaboration for the transformation of situations which are contested, uncertain and complex; known as “wicked situations”. Drawing on learning theory and the action research tradition, the IBA revolves around an inquiry, a question that enables collaboration among various stakeholders. 

This handbook can be used as course material in training for facilitators or as a standalone guide for designing and facilitating collaboration.

Authors: Kuenkel, P. & Schaefer, K (for The Collective Leadership Institute)
Publication date: 2013

In May 2012, the Collective Leadership Institute started a research project to explore the factors and patterns that help engender a collective way of leading for sustainability. The insights gained from this study show that isolated action needs to be replaced by collective leadership – a paradigm shift in how individuals find their leadership roles in the spirit of co-creation and contribution to the common good.
