Latest update – June 2020

Collaboration frequently occurs in the workplace where people come together to cooperate and work on a strategic project in order that they can accomplish a common goal.  It is simply teamwork taken to a higher level and has become a more productive way of doing things.

Most often collaboration happens within fairly small teams  – functional teams, time-limited project teams or cross-functional management teams.

In effective collaboration, all people involved use their emotional intelligence well to balance emotional needs with their thinking, build authentic relationships and make good quality decisions on behalf of the organisation. Whether working with others one-to-one, in small groups or large teams, there is exemplary communication with empathy that engages hearts and minds.  This occurs at all levels of the organisation.

This course is about collaborating with others in ways that will help you to communicate more efficiently as you work to understand and work with differences that lead to effective collaboration.  In addition, the skills, processes and tools taught in this course can bring value to other aspects of your life.

The course covers all aspects of collaborative working focusing on win-win collaboration where everyone benefits. The characteristics, principles and modes of collaboration are examined to give you a much broader insight into getting the best from collaboration.

The course, also covers trust and how you can build trust as you work together with others.

Behavioral styles are reviewed looking at the strengths and liabilities of each. You get the opportunity to complete a questionnaire that will give you an insight to the behavioral style that you prefer to use with the chance to explore how your style can help and how it can hinder collaboration.

This course is a standalone course for anyone interested in understanding collaboration at work and how to get more from collaborative relationships.  It compliments other courses that explore emotional intelligence in more depth.
