How to Win at Collaboration: 5 Steps for Success

Benchmark your collaborative skills and apply key behaviors for greater effectiveness

Individuals in the workplace face many challenges to working together effectively, such as the shift from in-person to virtual or hybrid teams, reorganized workflows and reporting structures, and similar disruptions.  Unless they can collaborate effectively, they will find themselves mired in project delays, miscommunications, and derailed initiatives.  Clearly, effective and authentic collaboration is more important than ever in today’s workplace. True collaboration can only take place when people are working together with a specific mindset and the coordinated skills to achieve it. This new research-based course can help you and your team develop the knowledge, skills and behaviors to embrace and execute effective collaboration regardless of work environment.  Participants will take a pre-course online assessment which will rate their individual “Collaboration Q” and offer personalized data they can use to identify the skills they need to develop and maximize their collaborative efforts.
