Collaborative Mindsets

  • NMC University Center, Room 7 2200 Dendrinos Drive Traverse City, MI, 49684 United States (map)

Busting silos and working better together is absolutely essential to making progress on our toughest community challenges. But, working together is hard, and the biggest obstacles to collaboration are also the most invisible and difficult to change - our own mindsets. The very mindsets that have led to our individual and organizational success can actually work against us when we try to work more collaboratively. During this session we will explore what these mindsets are and experiment with some techniques to retrain our brains to be better partners.
