skillBUILD trainings develop the talents and tools of professionals for their workplace and community

2021 skillBUILD Series:

We believe you must lead to innovate and you must innovate to lead. More so than at any other time in our history, today's dynamic environment requires great attention to leading self, teams, organizations, and communities. This year's series will continue to build on innovation concepts from 2020 (i.e. Cultivating an Innovation Ecosystem and Leveraging Collective Genius) with a focus on: Being an Innovation Catalyst; Harnessing Creative Abrasion; Balancing Innovation Tensions; and Cultivating Collaboration.

Session 4: Cultivating Collaboration

During this live online and highly interactive workshop, participants will explore the foundational elements needed to harness, promote, and diffuse collaboration across their innovation ecosystem. Through a progression of specifically choreographed conversations, participants will develop guiding principles that can be leveraged immediately to cultivate collaboration within their work, families, and communities. By the end of the workshop, participants will be empowered to cultivate a collaborative environment where sharing is safe and encouraged to create a free flow of ideas and spark the fuel of inspiration and innovation.
