Collaboration can achieve or generate a result of a common purpose for one or more individuals. Everyone in the group has a common goal or vision. The group must work together and think together, and the final product results from collective effort. Collaborators are partners on an equal footing. Can we understand what it takes to collaborate successfully with others? What are the advantages and value of teamwork in the workplace, and how can employers build a collaborative environment and reward workers for their efforts?
This collaborative workshop will explore these and other questions in greater depth. In this training, participants will discuss the importance of collaboration, brainstorm strategies for fostering it in the workplace and identify some of the difficulties that teams face. Using exercises and discussion, participants will gain an understanding of various approaches to collaboration and how to put them into practice in their workplace. Participants will better understand the benefits and value of teamwork by the end of this training, and they will be able to put their newfound knowledge into action.
