With economic, social, and environmental challenges reaching crisis levels and new technology breaking down traditional boundaries, collaboration has moved up in importance on every organization’s agenda - and with it the need for leadership coaching and team facilitation. People in the commercial, public, and voluntary sectors see partnership working as playing a vital role within and between organizations. In Great Britain, for example, the need for collaboration is a key theme of reform in the National Health Service and the Civil Service. Multi-agency approaches are used in aid work and the criminal justice system, and an increasing number of strategic alliances have formed between commercial organizations. This creates the need to constantly put effort and energy into developing relationships that work. Without this focus relationships can drift and serious business consequences emerge. Risk in relationships to an organisations effectiveness is not always given the attention it deserves alongside other aspects of business planning and delivery. This is where we come in - helping leaders and their teams navigate the complexity of human relationships to create organisations that collaborate for results.
