Description: 

In an environment that increasingly relies on contracting leaders and managers to drive innovative solutions, collaborative problem solving has become a non-negotiable skill.  There is clear evidence that collaboration leads to better results than can be achieved by individual contributors. Driving meaningful collaboration can be challenging for contracting leaders who manage a wide variety of stakeholders, sometimes with competing priorities. 

This seminar will explore specific strategies for solving complex contracting problems through collaboration and provide hands-on practice building high-trust relationships, fostering a collaborative environment, using emotional intelligence and problem-solving models to lead a team solution, leveraging collaboration tools and technology, and avoiding common collaboration pitfalls.
