Benefits

Building Collaborative Capacity starts with Engagement

Collaboration has Far Reaching Benefits

The benefits colleges and universities might produce with our proven methodology:

 

  • Shrink gaps in understanding
  • Enhance outcomes with aligned actions

 

Using several pre-designed feedback cycles to elicit audience input, the group can visualize how another department sees that same problem – instead of a vicious cycle of disruptive solutions. Whether it’s 50 or 500 people, a mutual understanding of how other stakeholders perceive their roles resulting in a unified approach to solving problems.

 

Most meetings stop at awareness of the problem. Across thousands of meetings supported over 20 years, we found that we can move a large group of stakeholders through levels of engagement to reach alignment.

This … Or This?

It takes unbiased facilitation and validated design processes, but the groups will move. They want to. We found the difference between the two situations is the amount of engagement cycles you complete.  The conversation moves off of judgements, incomplete assumptions, mis-interpretations and differences in perspectives into a virtuous engagement.
