In a world that seems to thrive on conflict, there are powerful advantages in being able to collaborate across boundaries – including boundaries within and outside the organization. The ability to share information, tasks, resources and solutions is highly valuable in a complex environment where people more often misunderstand each other and fail to see the value of partnering for success.  Collaboration can double or triple available resources and brain power; a lack of it can waste valuable opportunities to solve problems and build lasting relationship. Scientists and business managers have known for years the value of people who can work across disciplines and functions to achieve more than any one person could achieve working alone.

 

In this 4-hour workshop, leaders and professionals will learn strategies and tools for collaborating with others across multiple boundaries to achieve greater efficiencies, productivity and results.


Who Should Attend This Workshop?


This workshop is designed for leaders and professionals in industry, universities and colleges, research facilities, government as well as the Society. We encourage those who are currently leading or who are planning to lead a project or initiative that will require collaboration across an organizational boundary.


Price for Members: $150.00
