The Collaboratory: Essential Collaboration for Workforce Teams and Partners ($200)

Why Collaboration Skills?

Everyone is challenged to adapt to the rapidly changing dynamics of the educational landscape. Silo culture, resource limitations, fears, risk aversion are all stress factors that block efforts for positive change within many organizations. Nowadays nobody succeeds alone. Not only is the ability to collaborate better with others key, it’s also the way that partnerships with K-12 and industry leaders will bring about success for your students.

The good news, collaboration isn’t magic. It’s a mindset and a skillset that everyone can learn quickly.

The Collaboratory is a highly interactive laboratory that builds awareness and collaboration skills that are practical and immediately useful to building and maintaining collaborative relationships within teams and communities.

Participants will have the opportunity to walk away with:

  • AHA! moments
  • Fresh perspective
  • Goal-centric thinking
  • Greater self-awareness and awareness of others
  • Essential collaboration skills
  • New language for exchanging ideas and sharing of resources
  • Creative ways to engage and contribute
