The Art of Working as an Ecosystem: New Directions Collaborative Workshop Series
November 29, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$100
A workshop and practice series to learn and practice how to work collaboratively to catalyze change Activating the full potential within an organization, community, or network requires us to see how our work fits into a larger whole and how we can connect what are often fragmented “parts.” Some wisdom, collective strength, and innovative solutions can only be accessed when we engage and connect people from many parts of an organization, community, or system. Yet, methods to work “as an ecosystem” are rarely taught or emphasized in leadership training. The skills and methods can be learned – and then we need to practice, in community After working with many collaborative initiatives and seeking out tools and processes, Beth Tener of New Directions Collaborative, has combined what she has learned in this introductory workshop to build skills in working as an ecosystem. In this workshop, you will learn:
- Principles of how systems work
- Practical tools to help people “see the system” and make relationships visible
- Participatory processes for how to connect and cross-pollinate the work and wisdom of diverse perspectives
- How and why accessing and engaging marginalized voices is critical to this work
