Collaborative Leadership: The Art of Working with and Motivating Others

December 15 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm CST


This virtual seminar is split between two consecutive days. Participants must attend both sessions to complete the seminar. Registration covers both sections.

Part 1: December 15 | 8:30am – 12:00pm
Part 2: December 16 | 8:30am – 12:00pm

Collaborative leadership is about uniting and motivating people towards a shared purpose. This can be difficult because of personalities, personal agendas, misaligned goals, and the lack of collaboration skills. However, with the skills and knowledge to be a collaborative leader, you can overcome these challenges and inspire people towards shared outcomes, unified relationships, and taking responsibility to follow through with commitments.

Key Topics

  • Facilitate collaborative decision-making by asking the right questions, listening with focus, and capturing ideas.
  • Create a collaborative environment where people are motivated to work together, resolve issues, and discover optimal outcome.
  • Recognize what motives people to show up, work with commitment, and engage with others.

Who Should Attend

Anyone who is responsible for inspiring others to work together towards a shared purpose. This will include team leaders, supervisors, managers, or project managers.
