Product Details

The best leaders aren’t formidable ones. They lead with strong purpose and direction, but their strength isn’t defined by how harsh they are, how much critical feedback they can give, or how strict they are with deadlines. Instead, their strength comes from how well they can encourage, support, and direct their team. The essence of collaboration involves bringing together the individual talents of your team members to create something, a new idea, a solution to a problem, a path towards goal achievement. Whether building or facilitating collaboration within one team or across several teams, this workshop provides the tools and practical applications to accomplish more through how you involve others.
