In August 2017, the Tamarack Institute’s Liz Weaver published a paper called Turf, Trust, Co-Creation, and Collective Impact. This ground-breaking paper explores the interconnected relationship between the act of building trust and collaborative success and impact.
“Authentic community change moves at the speed of trust. And yet, we spend so little time and focus on intentionally building trust amongst partners.”
Increasingly, communities are using collaboration to tackle some of their most complex issues. People often dive into collaboration without truly understanding or embracing the human side of this work. This is even more challenging in a virtual environment. They focus more on the output or outcome rather than the process which is to the detriment of everyone. In managing complexity, they know that they must bring different voices and experiences to the table. How can people do this effectively when they don’t build practices which engage others and build trust?
About the Opportunity
This virtual workshop will provide participants with simple, practical tools, and approaches to building trust. Participants will be able to bring these tools back into their collaborative efforts and renew engagement and shared ownership. The workshop will focus on virtual collaboration and connection.
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 price for a single registration is $199. Groups of three are eligible for a discounted price of $159 per person.
This virtual workshop is divided into three distinct parts:
- Part One: Includes a one-hour pre-learning and self-reflection component where participants will be asked to assess your trust-building skill set.
- Part Two: Includes a three and a half-hour virtual workshop which will focus on managing turf, building trust, and repairing relationships when trust breaks down.
- Part Three: Includes a one-hour coaching session one month after the virtual workshop to deepen the participant’s trust-building skill set.
The workshop package will be filled with both content and practical tools and takeaways that participants will be able to use in their collaborative efforts or in their workplaces.
