Collaboration Practices

Shay Howe

We are born collaborators. As children we’re taught to share our toys, take turns on the playground, and, perhaps most powerful, use our imagination. These fundamental skills transcend from the playground to the classroom, and later into the workplace.

Overtime, though, we lose the spark once had on the playground. Innovation comes at the cost of time and frustration, and workplace collaboration becomes unproductive. It doesn’t have to, and shouldn’t, be this way.

Within this workshop we’ll cover collaboration in detail, outlining practices to help strengthen communication, establish understood roles, self-selected leaders, and work together. Collaboration shouldn’t be futile and a few simple practices can make all the difference in increasing team productivity and happiness.
