Our collaboration training course helps groups work better together so that they do their very best collectively.
The ability to work well together is fundamental to the success of organisations, teams and individuals alike. When shared purpose, identity and trust are missing, mergers, team effectiveness and personal well-being suffer. When well-meaning teams work in silos, knowledge sharing and cross-functionality also break down.
We understand that not all collaboration is created equal. It is possible to spend huge numbers of hours in meetings, team brainstorming sessions or sharing projects without collaborating effectively. Personalities, values, corporate culture and organisational reward systems, among other things, can make collaboration challenging.
Our team collaboration training provides the critical insight, safe space and practical tools needed to help any group develop ways of collaborating that are effective, appropriate for their context and sensitive to differences in personality and ways of working.
We can help you work out when and how you should come together so that your collaboration is more effective and positive.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our approach to collaboration is, well, collaborative. During this interactive workshop, we will introduce key themes and techniques, but we will also invite your group to engage in exercises, discuss what the insights we share would actually look like when applied in their work, and decide how they as a team want to work together moving forward. The session is grounded in research on what makes for effective teams, and practical techniques and tips are never far away.
WHAT WILL DELEGATES WALK AWAY WITH?
- A shared understanding of what it takes for collaboration to succeed;
- Greater group identity and purpose;
- A refined understanding of the values influencing your group;
- Tools for giving feedback and having difficult conversations; and
- Your own ‘collaboration charter’ outlining how you want to work together going forward.
You can’t collaborate well if you don’t have trust. Our collaboration training session was designed by Dr. Brennan Jacoby (philosopher, trust expert and founder of Philosophy at Work). Brennan’s doctoral research analysed trust and explained what was needed to cultivate trust in organisational contexts. While we also offer training specifically focused on trust, our collaboration training for businesses is grounded in Brennan’s research on trust. We take this approach because we know real, effective collaboration that lasts is not just based on surface-level rapport-building techniques, but deeper relationships characterised by trust.
WHO IS IT FOR?
- Post-merger culture shapers
- Project teams seeking greater effectiveness
- Those working in industries and organisations that have traditionally been characterised by ways of working in silos.
- Leaders and managers that want to create a culture of collaboration throughout their organisation.
Available as a full day training session, a 3-hr workshop or 90-minute sprint, our team collaboration training will help any group be a better version of itself.
