Courageous Collaboration -- Live Learning Laboratory

To improve morale, increase employee satisfaction, drive innovation and enhance employee engagement, we need tools to create culture change.  But facilitating organization change is hard and requires courageous collaboration!

Designed for internal leaders and external consultants who wish to improve their understanding of and experience with collaboration, participants will:
• Learn how Gracious Space can help groups work better together
• Learn the Courageous Collaboration Change Framework and tools/techniques to advance courageous collaboration
• Know how the framework can be applied to a specific context

This overall purpose of this workshop is to facilitate a peer-to-peer experience that builds local relationships, and explores our best thinking and techniques for how to improve trust, communication and collaboration in the groups we serve and consult with.
