Complex Collaboration

When you want to bring diverse groups of people together to tackle complex challenges
and amp up your impact by catalysing the power of the collective*,

* collective: any group of two or more humans trying to get good stuff done in the world, together.

In a world where every day you might be:

  • convening a diverse team to tackle global challenges that require multi-agency and multi-disciplinary cooperation

  • leading complex cross-functional projects in virtual, face-to-face, or hybrid spaces

  • wondering how to handle the potential conflict of competing needs in a group

  • collaborating to serve an organisation or community's higher purpose

  • working with any group of people who are trying to get stuff done, together

 

The need for connection and collaboration is
more important than ever.

Some might say, imperative.

 

And, anyone who’s ever been in a group that doesn’t gel,
knows that it doesn't happen by accident and when it does all come together, it's incredible and powerful.

Perhaps you'd like to feel the flow of connecting and collaborating with others in a joyful way you know is possible but seldom experience.

Maybe you're working with a team who are trying hard to do great work but just aren't finding their groove together. 

Or you might have a sense that there are potent and practical ways to unlock the power of your community group that you haven't fully tapped into yet.

You're not alone!

It takes is courage to show up differently, heart to hold all the messiness that humans bring to groups, and skills to do collective work well.

You see that. We see that. This is where we can help. 

Ways of Working

When you're working with a group who actively want to improve their ways of working

What are the things you can work on?

Look at dynamics and relationships – whether you attend to them, or not, it's the relationships and patterns of behaviour in a group that enable or disable them from working well together.

 

Ignore them at your peril!

 

Look at how things get done – for example, how conflict is handled, how decisions get made, how creativity is supported, how trust is established, strengthened and maintained. 

 

If you want to get more aware of what's happening, more intentional about how you work together, and more skilful with any of it, we can help.

“Recently, it became apparent to me that despite having done facilitation work in many areas of my career, I had not actually taken any formal training.

 

I came into the work expecting some fairly basic interactions, some theory, and maybe some tools and resources. What I got was so much more than that.

 

Katherine and Kenda are consummate professionals in this field and that expertise is held lightly, confidently, but also openly.

 

They guided a group of strangers through four fascinating experiences that challenged assumptions, and allowed spaces for reflection, learning and practice. I am tempted to say so much more, but what I will say is that such training is rarely so productive and have such an influence on future professional practice. I would highly recommend this to almost any working professional from any level.”
