Telfer Executive Breakfast Series: Collaboration and the Hidden Dimensions of Power and Influence

Wednesday, September 21, 2016, 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

Developing truly innovative and practical responses to today’s complex challenges relies on our capacity to initiate and sustain collaboration amongst individuals and groups holding diverse ideas and priorities. Research indicates that leaders who successfully foster innovation create communities of collaborators that share a sense of purpose and values, as well as a set of norms to guide working together. Leading collaborative breakthroughs also requires an ability to work with the hidden dimensions of power and influence in productive ways.

This session is presented by Dr. Ingrid Richter, and will offer some key strategies, practical tips and promising practices to advance your collaboration/partnership initiative in a variety of contexts.
