Collaboration in Challenging Environments
In organizational settings, nearly all work gets done through the effective collaboration and coordination of ideas among people who inevitably come from different backgrounds and experiences. Learning to co-create effectively is an essential skill. Cooperative Dynamics is a leadership development program for individuals who need to achieve results through collaborating effectively with peers and other stakeholders. This workshop provides an opportunity for participants to explore how they can stay in creative mental and emotional spaces while working in challenging environments, often with seemingly difficult people.
