Course Overview
Effective collaboration pays huge dividends - more projects are completed on time and on budget, morale increases, customers are more satisfied (as is the business), and trust is built and shared between groups and departments. If your team could benefit from any of these outcomes, Cross Group Collaboration will get you on the right track.

This highly interactive 1-day course focuses on identifying the challenges of working across teams and focuses participants on developing practical, everyday strategies and solutions. It begins with an intensive simulation exercise that develops awareness of cross group dynamics and the critical factors to improve the collaboration process, and then provides practical tools for achieving smart, effective collaboration among teams.

"I already recommended this to my entire team....It should be made as a mandatory training for every employee....Exercises were great, well structured, and raised very salient points....This training should be a mandatory one for all new hires....It is simply THAT good and invaluable to getting any job done."
