April Monthly Program
Why do we have difficulty working with others? Is it always them?
Could it possibly be us?
Collaboration is an essential requirement for the successful
development and delivery of training to the target audience. With
so many stakeholders involved – management, customers,
participants and co-workers – nothing can be done in a vacuum.
Yet, there are a multitude of reasons why collaborative efforts
become strained, if not fail altogether. Alternate approaches,
disagreement on objectives and different personalities are just a
few of the barriers to a successful collaboration.
Developers, designers and trainers need a personal action plan to
ACCEPT collaboration to meet the needs of all the stakeholders
and ensure the success of their projects.
In this session, you will learn:
• Barriers in collaborating with others
• Attitudes and their impact on collaboration
• The ACCEPT method to improve your working relationships with
• A specific game plan for a successful collaboration
