Five myths of collaboration
Free lecture and exchange with Adam Kahane
We often think that including more partners, more players is the right thing to do. But is it always? What if we can't find common ground? And what if we just don't like working with "those people"? In this lecture, Kahane will give first-hand accounts of what it's like working on challenging issues with people you don't like or don't get along with. He will share hard-won lessons about why collaborations often break down and offer practical advice for moving through roadblocks.
Over the past 25 years, Adam Kahane and his Reos colleagues have worked with multi-sector teams from across the globe on issues ranging from food sustainability, the drug problem in the Americas, health equity in the United States, and child development in Canada. The results of these ambitious projects have been documented in best-selling books such as Solving Tough Problems, Power and Love: A Theory and Practice of Social Change, and Transformative Scenario Planning. Find out more about Adam Kahane, including his Nova Scotia connection.
