Collaboration not CoBLABoration: A Conversation with Chris Thompson - Webinar

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 -
12:00pm to 1:00pm

Effective cross-sector collaboration – engaging a diverse group of stakeholders to assume shared responsibility for achieving a shared, mutually beneficial goal – can generate enduring, positive community change that we can see, feel and touch. Success however is not guaranteed.  Indeed, without careful design a collaboration quickly devolves into its “evil cousin,” coblaboration – characterized by talk that never turns into action, redundant meetings and no data to clarify the multitude of opinions.

This webinar offers an opportunity to learn about:

  • The necessary pre-conditions for collaboration;
  • The core elements of effective collaboration;
  • The essential role of collaborative leadership and,
  • How evaluation of the performance and outcomes of a collaboration differs from evaluating either a program or an organization.
