The Power of Letting Go and Enabling Collaboration

In leading organizations, creativity drives business results and executable ideas are the core of strategic and competitive advantage. Yet talented and motivated individuals cannot jointly achieve effective results until the enablers of collaboration are in place.

Entrenched organizational hierarchy is the roadblock to collaboration.

A new mindset is required to lead and enable co-creators to increase the quality of ideas, speed up decision making, and solve the toughest problems throughout the organization.

And without responsibility-sharing, decision-making, and idea-generation protocols, individual assets are limited, innovation is stifled, and in many cases organizations are on the path to steady decline.

Collaborative leaders create conditions for their company to outshine the competition by out-thinking them, out-creating them, and out-innovating them repeatedly. If your role is to help leaders and all contributors in the organization learn to collaboratively formulate and execute a winning strategy, this eye-opening webcast is for you!
