Radical Collaboration Program (Blended Learning Format)

This program is for everyone who wants to improve their collaborative skills and co-create a positive “green zone” climate in which to live and work.

Description

“The radical collaboration training went much deeper than any corporate training I did before. Learning to communicate from a non-defensive “green zone” attitude and focusing on the underlying interests helped me to better solve problems and build successful long-term relationships” – Leen Van Looveren – Marketing Consultant at Pfizer

“This training has an ideal mix of theoretical concepts, practical examples, self-analysis & experimental exercises which makes the content very tangible and helped me to apply it immediately in a broad range of situations in both my work and my private life.” Francis Duyck - Managing Director at B-PARKING, Belgium

“I no longer avoid conflicts, but instead use the tools I got from this training to come to a satisfying solution for all people concerned. This training should be given in every place where people live and/or work together!” - Tonia Bergmans - Consultant at CHRISTELIJKE MUTUALITEIT, Belgium

There is growing recognition that effective collaboration promotes greater engagement, productivity and innovation. In their classic study titled Corporate Culture and Performance, John Kotter and James Heskett reported on vital the role that a collaborative culture plays on the success or failure of major corporations. The study, covering more than two hundred companies, in twenty-two industries, demonstrated that more collaborative cultures significantly out-performed more adversarial cultures both in terms of profitability and growth.

Some of the companies that have used Radical Collaboration include the Boeing Leadership Center, United Airlines, Toyota-BT Europe, Sony Ericsson, BNP Paribas Investment Solutions, Pfizer and the United Nations.

The Radical Collaboration programme is a highly interactive training, that focuses on the skills and tools that are essential to building and maintaining climates of trust and collaboration, within teams and organizations. The skills are applicable in a wide range of settings and the tools are both practical and easily implemented.
