Our story

The goal of the CPL - Centre for Participatory Leadership is to offer high-quality and creative opportunities for organisational and individual leadership development through participative processes! Why? We strongly believe that by supporting people to understand each other points of view and to contribute actively to their future, we could make a huge positive impact on the quality of life in our local and global communities.

 

CPL functions as a platform for cooperation of the group of professionals who share the passion for cocreation, complex projects and long-term development of groups and individuals. In CPL, they connect their professions into special stories, always about supporting groups in creating and achieving their purpose.



CPL has started in January 2005, as a boutique consultancy Šesti oblik, inspired by potential of bringing participatory processes into local reality of Croatia. With growth of our presence from local to international and becoming a stronger and even more diverse team, during 2017. we transformed our brand into Centre for Participatory Leadership. We aim to continue to be one of the international centres to which learners will be attracted, and the centre where new developments in PL will be grown and joined with efforts of our colleagues world-wide.

CPL is agile, project organisation – flexible but with the strong common understanding how we deliver our services with quality. Our principles and values are at the core, and we find them very important: 

  • We use facilitation skills and diverse participative methods to support groups, projects and organisations, so they can achieve valuable results
  • We are very clear when it comes to roles and responsibilities – of those who make decisions about the purpose of the process, participants and us as facilitators of the process or trainers
  • We consult clients and together we choose those methods which fit to the context of the project
  • We assure that the whole process is properly designed, and if needed we do it for our clients end-to-end  – it includes having clear need, purpose, key people on board, expressed expectations, timeframe,  planned outcomes, invitation, event(s) scenario and follow-up steps
  • Through training programmes, we are developing competencies and increasing organisational capacity to deal with the defined topic – the outcomes are applicable knowledge and skill
  • We are inspired by working with an intent and purpose, and by the potential of facilitating people – same inspiration we are successfully transferring to others!
  • We love to work on complex projects, locally or internationally, and with groups with a high level of diversity – we like to combine our diverse backgrounds to support our clients in a very unique way.
  • We are part of several networks of peers – international facilitators and consultants – and we are exchanging our experiences and knowledge. We cooperate on some projects when we see the need and potential.

 

Part of our energy since 2012. is invested into opening Impact Hub Zagreb, inspirational co-working place and support centre for entrepreneurs. It is often location of our local activities.
