Collaboration and sustainable partnership building are critical skills needed in all organizations, businesses and movements. While everyone acknowledges the need for these skills, very few people know how to become better collaborators or that there are right and wrong ways of doing “partnership”.  This workshop guides participants through an informative and interactive educational experience while providing practical skills to improve their collaborations.
