The Currency of Collaboration
SPEAKER: Patrick Hiester, MA, LPC
- Do you ever engage in behaviors that undermine your potential?
- Do you find yourself doing things that compromise your ability to achieve your desired goals?
- Have you ever struggled with a difficult co-worker, boss, client or someone in your personal life?
If the answer is “yes”, then we encourage you to attend this workshop and learn about a new way to step “out of the box” and move forward.
This workshop, based on the Arbinger Institute’s model of personal leadership, suggests that if we can step "out of the box" and see how we contribute to repetitive problem situations, we can change our assumptions and our behaviors and break the cycle of "more of the same."
Come join us and take away some invaluable insights and tools that are fundamental to your success in your work and in your life.
- Sharpened Vision in challenging situations
- Opportunity for immediate conflict negotiation
- Reduced feelings of conflict, and increased conscious, intentional resolution ability
- Enliven the desire for teamwork
- Redoubled accountability
- Magnified capacity to achieve results
- Deepened satisfaction and happiness
This workshop combines several organizational approaches and theories to convey an experiential understanding of the value of collaboration. In our work facilitating conflict resolution, working with dysfunctional or challenged teams, and in leadership development we have concluded that effective collaboration is the missing currency. Our most successful interventions, trainings and assessments have been ones in which we are able to build collaboration.
The currency of collaboration goes up in value as we learn how to enhance trust levels, build teams, and create aligned partnerships.
This training will explore how we enter “boxes” in which we depersonalize and objectify others. We then tend to elicit the specific behaviors from them we seek to avoid. We lose emotional intelligence and the ability to reach the best solution we are capable of. The “Currency of Collaboration” approach facilitates participants in taking personal responsibility to improve their collaborative skill sets. You will find out what it takes to see others as whole people, allowing you to interact with them with compassion and kindness while being assertive and clear in your communication and behavior.
Participants will be invited to examine their beliefs and assumptions about collaboration and conflict. They will discover how their beliefs may be limiting their problem-solving abilities and to find ways to effectively work in collaboration with others.
