To be successful in the rapidly changing workplace, where jobs and people change fast staff must be able to collaborate with a variety of people within and outside the organization who have the skills, resources, and influence to tackle increasing complex challenges. Collaboration is a skill and a set of practices that are rarely taught in the workplace. In this course staff will learn about characteristics of collaboration; when and why to collaborate; collaboration success factors; the role leadership plays in collaboration; and ways to improve communication and strengthen collaborative behaviors within and across teams and departments.
