Date: October 17, 2017 | 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. EST
Guest: Adam Kahane, Director of Reos Partners
Host: Mark Cabaj, Here to There Consulting Inc.
In June 2017 we hosted a webinar with Adam Kahane and Mark Cabaj where they discussed Adam's new book - Collaborating with the Enemy: How to Work with People You Don't Agree with or Like or Trust. The webinar discussed key differences between conventional collaboration and stretch collaboration and the fundamentals of what it truly means to tackle problems together.
But the crowd wanted more. With over 500 people on the call, many reached out asking us to go deeper with Adam on a follow up webinar. So we're doing just that.
Join us for Part Two of Collaborating with the Enemy. To enable us to go deeper, we invite you to read the book before the webinar (available from all booksellers in paperback, e-book, and audio formats) and to include the questions and challenges you are wrestling with in the registration form below. We will then organise the webinar around the questions submitted so that it is as relevant as possible for the work you are doing.
