The Art of Collaboration Workshop

The Community Foundation, in partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, invites you to participate in:  The Art of Collaboration Workshop on October 4, 9:00 to 11:00 a.m.


Collaboration is about sharing resources and effort to more effectively solve problems and create value and greater impact. Whatever the context for the collaborative enterprise, we as individuals are significant instruments of its success or failure. We personally have the power to make or break these efforts to a large degree. In fact, our attitudes and behaviors are the real currency of collaboration.

This two-hour class provides a conceptual framework and builds key skills to support any team or partnering effort. It unpacks the dynamics and conditions that support cooperative or competitive behaviors. It grounds participants in a collaborative problem-solving approach and focuses on the important aspects of creating high-functioning groups and teams. At the end of this session, participants will have an essential foundation to guide their efforts to meet their collaborative goals.
