Standing on the Shoulders of Giants Through Collaboration
Ninety percent of organizations claim to be tackling issues so wickedly complex that they need teams to solve them. It is difficult to find anyone that would declare that collaboration lacks value to an organization as that response would be deemed unpopular in most organizations today, however what does it mean to “do collaboration”? Everyone in your organization likely has different ideas about “being collaborative. This means differing expectations and misunderstandings, resulting in less than optimal experiences. AND what if collaboration has not been a priority in organizations? You can be a more valuable resource in your organization by improving collaboration.
This presentation will address the following points:

Actions you can implement to develop a contagious collaborative mindset
- Identify how to make collaboration a priority in your organization
- Learn how to improve team collaboration as an influencer
