Course Description

This course is 7 learning hours over two days.


In theory, collaboration is a great concept. People talk in the workplace about building a team and working collaboratively. However, very few understand how to improve team dynamics by collaborating effectively, how to truly experience what teamwork is, or even how to develop an exceptional team.

In this interactive, compelling, and thought-provoking course, you will learn how to harness the power of collaboration to build highly effective teams and improve relationships. You will also learn how to increase engagement and morale amongst staff. By interacting with employees at various levels within an organization and leveraging their unique personalities, you can work more collaboratively, drive performance, and achieve exceptional results.

  • Actionable methods to leverage the strengths, personal styles, and generational differences of individuals to create a more collaborative environment
  • Powerful communication techniques when influencing and collaborating with others
  • Ways to overcome challenges impacting your team’s ability to work collaboratively
  • Proven practices to harness the power of collaboration, resolve conflict and improve team effectiveness
  • Leadership strategies to improve performance and collaboration during stages of team development
