Fostering a performance dialogue work culture revolves around collaborative relationship-building. Authentic collaboration, defined as respecting self and others while working on a shared goal, is an art, skill and science. It’s a win-win way of interacting that brings out the best within and among people. As a relationship intelligence, how we collaborate can make or break leadership and team success. That said, why is the practice of collaboration so challenging in everyday work life, especially during performance dialogue? What are the blocks and enablers to cultivating healthy collaborative relationships? How can we ramp up our collaboration skills so we become more effective and impactful? This interactive, experiential workshop lead by speaker Elizabeth Soltis supports HR professionals in practicing authentic collaboration as a potent lever to unleashing self-empowerment and people talent within our organizations.
