Radical Collaboration Training focusing on Teams

We are organising the Radical Collaboration Training focusing on TEAMS in Bern from March 20-22 2020. ​Come as an individual or bring your whole team along. 


This training will be a unique opportunity to explore your individual and collective patterns of collaboration in a true learning environment together with other individuals and teams. 

We do this training in collaboration with euforia 


Radical Collaboration is a training that works on the inner side of business and work, and helps you to build more effective relationships - the very foundation of collaboration. When things start to get difficult or complex a strong relational basis is the key to move forward effectively and creatively. If this fundament isn’t build properly you can’t expect great results. That is why Radical Collaboration works not only with methods, processes and structures but also focuses on inner attitudes, skills, and self-awareness. Peter Senge, author of the 5th discipline and senior lecturer at MIT, writes: “It is not the absence of defensiveness that characterizes learning teams but the way defensiveness is faced.”

We expect that this training will allow you to:

  • Create and support a collaborative work environment

  • Explore your team dynamics and their individual roots

  • Develop a shared reference language and understanding on collaborative patterns

  • Deal more effectively with challenging situations and conflicts

  • Negotiate interest based solutions

  • Adopt a more collaborative mindset and attitude

  • Communicate skillfully and with more self awareness

  • Exchange with other teams to allow in-depth learning
