Interaction is at the heart of leadership. It’s more than mechanics and it’s more than desire. It is a craft. And the craft can be – should be – mastered by every workplace leader.

The Collaborate workshop provides workplace leaders with an advanced set of tools, templates, and practice opportunities so that they can approach even the most challenging conversations with confidence and proficiency. Through a variety of hands-on practice exercises, participants will set a pattern for ongoing skill mastery back on the job. The outcomes will be a more conducive work environment, higher trust, clearer expectations, shared understanding, increased synergy, and enhanced resiliency. Yeah . . . it’s that good.
