Collaboration Skills Master Class: The Key Driver to Enhanced Business Performance

Collaboration is the key skill set that drives effective teams to improve business performance.  Collaboration can be much more than assembling as a team of different thinkers to do work. Done poorly, the results are half-baked ideas sort-of supported by some of the team’s members. Done well, the results are decisions better than anyone expected supported enthusiastically by all team members. Productive collaboration includes the presentation of different points of view and substantiation with data when possible. Effective tools help teams build and support great decisions. This seminar defines collaboration as the willingness and ability of both individuals and teams to build both great decisions AND great buy-in.
