3.2 Collective leadership in practice
You will now hear about real examples from two leaders in the voluntary sector. One is Ellie Garraway again, and the other is Clare Walton, who is a Chief Executive Officer of a charity. They both talk about collective leadership and the more ‘mundane’ leadership practices that they, and other people around them, use.
