Collaboration: A Strategy for Surviving in Tough Times


It’s a new era. More of everything—from time, to energy, to money—seems needed. Can we do more with less? Yes, with the power of collaboration. Collaboration means bringing together people from sometimes vastly different sectors—grassroots groups, nonprofits, businesses, government agencies, economic classes, and ethnic and racial groups—to accomplish what no single power could on its own. But, working together has its challenges.

In this webinar, Fieldstone Alliance collaboration expert Sandy Jacobsen will help you think through whether or not collaboration is the best way to accomplish your goals.

Through stories and examples, you’ll see the power of collaboration to turn barriers upside down and inside out, so we can solve our problems with lasting changes rather than band aid solutions or pilot projects that fall apart with the latest round of budget cuts.

Learning Objectives:

You’ll Discover:
  • The pros and cons of collaborating during tough economic times.
  • What your true goals are and whether or not collaboration is the right strategy to reach them.
  • The three toughest issues in collaboration: building trust, leading successfully, and making decisions.
