Speaker: Paula Bell, CBAP, CEO/President, Paula A. Bell Consulting, LLC
How many times have you been on a project where you just couldn't get into a good working relationship with someone on the team? In order to be successful on projects, you have to collaborate with others, not tolerate them. This can be challenging due to different personalities and mindsets, but it’s essential to have these different perspectives, personalities and mindsets to really create successful solutions. The word "collaboration" is used loosely without effective execution of the true meaning.

What attendees will receive out of this presentation:
  1. How to build effective relationships for collaboration
  2. How to foster an environment of collaboration
  3. How to maintain those relationships as there was an investment made to build them
