Webinar Description

As government and philanthropic investors continue re-thinking the way they engage with and fund social change, leaders within communities and nonprofits will find themselves being called on to work with these stakeholders in an entirely new way. More and more, the missions of organisations will be enacted through collaborations involving representatives from different sectors. If collaborations are uncharted territory, an easy mistake for everyone to make is assuming they already have the ability to manage whatever challenges may arise. In reality it takes a particular set of skills to engage with people of significantly different mindsets, power levels and agendas.

Delivered by Liz Skelton, Director The Adaptive Practice this webinar will cover:

  • The dynamics of collaboration: Leveraging competition, commitment and control
  • Understanding and working with power and authority in collaboration
  • Engaging the ‘No’
