Collaborative success requires the engagement and commitment of

partners to the common cause


Increasingly, communities are using collaboration to tackle some of their most complex issues. We often dive into collaboration without truly understanding or embracing the human side of this work. This is even more challenging in a virtual environment. We focus more on the output or outcome rather than the process which is to the detriment of all of us. In managing complexity, we know that we must bring different voices and experiences to the table. How can we do this effectively when we don’t build practices which engage others and build trust?

This interactive virtual workshop focuses on the core leadership competency of trust-building. Collaborative success requires the engagement and commitment of partners to the common cause. Lack of trust can take collaborative efforts off track. But little attention is paid to actions that build trust, create connections and deal with mistrust. Participants in the workshop will walk away with ideas, tools and approaches to effectively engage diverse community partners and intentionally build trusting relationships and collaborative impact. Come prepared to share your experiences and insights on how to build trust.

"The City of Prince George sponsored the Turf, Trust, and Collaboration workshop to recognize, and further build, the capacity of multi-sectoral agencies to work collaboratively to address complex issues. We had very positive feedback. Participants enjoyed the hands-on, interactive session and reported that they intended to immediately use one or more of the resources introduced during the session. We didn’t experience the “post-lunch slump” or participant drift in this fast-paced, fun session. Liz Weaver did a great job!"
