5 Keys to Success in Leading
Strategic Cross-Boundary Collaborations

Organizations working in concert can dramatically leverage resources and accelerate collective impact, while also increasing their individual mission impact. That is why more and more organizations now engage in alliances, partnerships, and other forms of cross-boundary collaboration. However, leading cross-boundary strategy creation and aligning execution is no mean feat. It requires new mindsets, new skills, and new tools.

Attend this session to discover 5 Keys to Success in Leading Strategic Cross-Boundary Collaborations. You will learn how to establish trust, which is a pre-requisite for successful collaboration; how to achieve smart strategic thinking by tapping collective intelligence; how to avoid decision inertia with complex issues; how to activate passion, excitement, and emotional engagement; and last, but not least, how to leverage technology to turbocharge all aspects of your cross-boundary collaboration.

This session is designed for strategists and leaders who want to meet diverse stakeholder expectations with less stress and struggle, and who want to increase alignment across geographic and functional boundaries to reduce the frustration of people thinking and working at cross-purposes.
