Event description
You can’t force people to collaborate effectively. Cultivating a collaborative leadership culture requires empathy and an open mind.

About this Event

Managers are taught how to analytically distinguish between good ideas and bad, but how to avoid building a culture of battling egos, fear and lack of creativity?

Say yes, say and, and join us in this powerful and practical 60min exploration.

The event is hosted by Learning Experience Design Director Eliza Hochman and Financial Times featured professor from Vlerick Business School, Ralf Wetzel.

What you get

  • Understand what collaborative leadership is and how to cultivate it across the company.
