Co-operative Leadership Tool
This is a diagnostic tool for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to reveal the extent of co-operative provision within an HEI and assess if a co-operative leadership model is viable within the institution as well as how it might be further developed. It is not a survey to collect data from multiple institutions, but rather, a tool to be used at the individual, departmental or whole institution level. If you wish to use this Tool, feel free to reproduce it or request a copy from us <mneary@lincoln.ac.uk>.
