3 Days Radical Collaboration Workshop

What is Radical Collaboration?

Radical Collaboration is designed to teach people five very
practical and immediately useful skills essential to building
more effective collaborative relationships between
individuals and within teams and organizations.

It is a three-day, highly interactive workshop, offered both
as an open enrollment workshop, and as in-house training.
It is particularly effective for established teams trying to
build more trusting, collaborative relationships with
colleagues, customers, and partners.


This program is acknowledged for its effectiveness, depth,
immediately applicable skills learned in a relatively short
amount of time, and is run world-wide in organizations
aiming to create a high-performance environment.
