1 hour 30 minutes
Learn how to collaborate your team effectively to improve productivity and overall engagement.
Managers and executives will discover when silos are real and worthy of respect, and which ones can be broken down to mutual benefit and improved results. The less we isolate ourselves from otherwise competent collaboration partners, the more we tend to benefit. The advantages of skillful two heads are better than one approaches include avoiding costly mistakes, better quality (we all have blind spots, that others can usually see, if we're open to it), and job satisfaction. Once overlooked opportunities to cooperate and innovate lead to solutions that may have been missed entirely for lack of the perspective of others. On the softer side, breaking down silos also delivers a greater sense of contribution, belonging, self worth, autonomy and enjoyment.
