Building Collaborative Teams

Collaboration requires a combination of social skills – from deep understanding of the diversity within our teams, to building trust and establishing respectful, empowering authentic communication. Healthy teams comprise diversity on all levels; they offer a wide pool of experiences on which to feed, and different values and beliefs to help us challenge stagnation. Managing, and indeed thriving on, diversity requires great skills in trust building and authentic communication. And we need skills to transform conflict into opportunity.

Building highly collaborative teams is both an art and a science. In this masterclass we explore tools and techniques, as well as mindsets and behaviours to enable us to build and be part of innovative, agile and resilient teams.
