Collaboration to achieve a common goal is often encouraged, but rarely do those involved have a shared understanding of what it means to collaborate, nor do they know how to collaborate. Too often, the result is coblaboration. Join us to explore the three essential elements of effective collaboration and explore practical lessons on the how of collaboration. The presentation will provide you with tools and guides that will help you determine whether you’re ready for collaboration, and help you identify the resources and types of leadership necessary to sustain a collaboration that can achieve a common goal. This program is hosted by Philanthropy Ohio.
