Leading Collaboration

Learn how to lead your team through the four stages of successful collaboration, and how to lead for full engagement and commitment.

Whether your team meets in-person or remotely via video conferencing, you will learn how to lead them through the four stages of successful collaboration: aim for ‘join-in’ not ‘buy-in’, put it all on the table, make good choices, and implement collaboratively.[1]

You will also learn how to lead for full engagement and commitment to each of the stages.


  • Recognize the elements of successful collaboration and full engagement
  • Identify and communicate the value of collaboration and engagement
  • Create the opportunity and environment necessary for productive collaboration and engagement
  • Practice the four-stage model of collaboration during a live simulation
  • Know who to engage in what stage and with what purpose
  • Learn how to communicate clear roles and set your team up for success

[1] The four stages are based on the work of Hurwitz & Hurwitz, the authors of Leadership is Half the Story: A Fresh Look at Followership, Leadership and Collaboration.
