Collaboration is challenging. Creating psychological
safety for teams, identifying problems that prevent effective
collaboration, and "unlearning" old assumptions and behaviors all
are necessary elements.
Fortunately, the skills and behaviors that facilitate
collaboration can be learned and practiced. We offer
a day filled with experiences that will help participants strengthen
their abilities to listen deeply, express themselves effectively,
interact personally, directly, spontaneously, and responsively,
and bridge the divides that can prevent us from communicating
and collaborating. Participants will have opportunities to deepen
human interaction and strengthen their empathy and awareness
of others, keys to successful collaborative team development.
Facilitated by faculty at the Center for Communicating Science
at Virginia Tech, the Collaboration Incubator will engage
participants in the basic principles of collaboration, allow them to
put the principles into action, and send them home with the tools
they need to help their teams learn to connect, communicate, and
collaborate effectively.
