Radical Collaboration® has a proven track record for doing exactly that; teaching employees and organizations to become more effective.

These five skills can be easily learned, practiced and make a big difference to any organization in a very short period of time.

This fast paced, hands-on learning experience will increase trust and problem solving within the organization and reduce costly defensive behaviors. It offers practical skills that are immediately useful and quickly implemented. Because the training is interactive and the tools are very practical the program is ideal for a wide range of settings and educational levels.
