About the Workshop

In this workshop, practice a high-performance collaboration process that can be used in large, complex projects as well as in small groups.  Learn key principles that lead to successful results while valuing the contributions of each person.

You will develop skills and tools for successful collaboration in order to:

  • Gain alignment on shared purpose and outcomes -- great achievement demands being true to purpose.
  • Choose from four methods of decision-making -- appropriate to each situation.
  • Value contribution through brainstorming and idea building -- for maximum contribution of each member.
  • Identify and remove boundaries -- reveal and eliminate sacred cows, limiting beliefs, and other stumbling blocks.
  • Overcome resistance -- ask questions, listen intently, and use conversation to dissolve resistance.
