Through the Looking Glass:
Expanding Awareness for Better Collaboration

On Demand Webinar

In our quest to achieve common goals, we often navigate complex collaborative landscapes that span from one-to-one interactions to multi-level organizational networks. In our navigating, we might lose sight of ourselves and how we collaborate. Yet, understanding and navigating our own habits and tendencies are crucial in helping us effectively work with others.

Do you thrive in groups or perform better in solitary efforts? Are you a natural born leader or are you more comfortable following directives? Are you an empathetic communicator or do you lean more on the data-driven approach? There’s no ‘right’ answer or ‘wrong’ approach – but your collaboration style can significantly influence how your collaborate with others, especially under pressure.

This enlightening webinar will guide you through the spectrum of self and mutual awareness that shapes collaborative interactions. We’ll offer practical strategies to enhance your awareness and exercise those skills in real-time. By understanding yourself as well as others, you’ll be better equipped to foster harmonious collaboration.
