Leadership and Innovation

Cultivating Collaboration

Group Training + View more dates & times


Work environments with plenty of collaboration are conducive to the generation of novel ideas, beneficial for innovation and organizational improvement. Because not all individuals feel comfortable readily sharing opinions and ideas, leaders must cultivate an environment where sharing is safe and encouraged as part of the individual’s daily performance. Fostering a culture of consistent collaboration is one of the first steps that must be taken for an organization to share innovative goals, and teammate involvement is essential for productivity and strong company culture. An individual, team, and organization can create a free flow of ideas and spark the fuel of inspiration by learning skills for providing and accepting constructive feedback. This course provides participants with collaborative strategies, including: how to manage group discussions, how to create a comfortable collaborative environment, and how to reconcile different communication styles in a collaborative setting.
