The compass dimensions resemble a pattern of six life principles. If people attend to these dimensions, they enhance the collaboration competencies of all actors and contribute to aliveness and vitality in human systems. The result is a better functioning of collaboration.
Diagnosing and planning with the compass creates life-enhancing properties and invigorates the human competencies for better co-creation.

In well-functioning Collaboration Systems, stakeholders bring in concerns, interests and expertise. They also learn from one another and identify key challenges. They articulate goals together and, drawing on their complementary roles, strengths and agility, they realize their shared vision.
Paying attention to the six dimensions of the Collective Leadership Compass helps build multi-stakeholder initiatives and collaborative action groups. If making collaboration successful is seen as a collective task, everybody becomes a guardian of the quality of interaction and the achievement of results.
We have built societies in which competition is in the forefront. However people feel invigorated when they experience how much we are as humankind together in the evolutionary process. Helping each other move forward towards sustainability makes us feel more alive. Successful collaboration grows with invigorated human competencies, and leads to collective impact and large-scale transformation.
