The Nature of Transformational Collaboration
Until we develop healthier collaboration skills, and deeply connect to our emotions as individuals and communities, we will be limited in our ability to process the massive amount of collective fear, grief and feelings of separation preventing people from coming together to implement the scale of creative solutions our world needs right now. This requires a willingness to bridge to other mindsets and find alignment regardless of political stance or background. Our brains, egos, judgments, and limiting beliefs keep us from abundance and the simplicity of solutions we can find by observing nature. The scarcity mindset limits impactful collaboration and prevents broad change. This transformational collaboration we are proposing has been proven to open the path to a much higher level of innovation, creating the potential for a living future we can all be proud of. Through dialogue and movement-based activities, and utilizing the wisdom of nature to inform best collaboration practices, participants will learn evidence-based tools they can bring back to their families, workplaces, and communities to lead the movement of transformational collaboration. Effective and conscious collaboration is rarely taught in schools and isn’t addressed as a daily practice in most corporate settings, yet it is key to building a thriving abundant future together. The depth of this work is grounded in the 45 years of clinical experience from the Hendricks Institute and the 25 years of research from the Heartmath Institute along with the life experience of both facilitators.
The ability to collaborate in a transformational way requires facing into how blame, criticism, judgement, listening filters and individualism prevent it from happening. First and foremost by looking at how to shift out of these behaviors within ourselves before successfully leading teams.
On May 3rd, 2019 we presented this workshop at the Living Future Conference in Seattle and we have made the presentation available Nature of Transformational Collaboration - Interactive Skills to Improve How we Work Together.
