Five Myths of Collaboration - The Seminar

with Adam Kahane and Ian Prinsloo

This hands-on session will address common misunderstandings that get in the way when people and organizations come together to address their most important and intractable issues.

You will learn how to
• recognize when (and why) it makes sense to enter a “tough collaboration”
• create a productive, safe space for dialoguing and disagreeing
• work with multiple answers and problems
• use experimentation as strategy
