You can’t compete externally if you can’t first collaborate internally. A project funded by the State of California and the Hewlett Foundation found that five skills are essential to create collaborative workplaces. By focusing on these skills, trust increased by more than 50% and measurable conflict was reduced by 67% in almost 100 organizations over a 3.5-year period, saving the State a huge amount of money. Participants were also significantly better at solving problems and getting their interests met. Come hear about the five skills from Judge Jim Tamm, one of the program designers and original faculty members, and increase your own personal collaborative effectiveness, as well as learn how to create more collaboration in your own organization and your family.
