The Collaboration Code

Unlock the power of collaboration and communication. This set of tools has been selected to create a shared language that shifts communication and enables a team to collaborate on the fundamentals. Learn effective strategies to foster open dialogue, active listening, and constructive feedback to create a culture of collaboration.

This themed package consists of short modules, each developing a core competency and giving you an actionable tool to practice the competency. Build your own programme by selecting from the short engaging sessions below. ​Contact us to explore more options on the collaboration theme.

Stop Drop & Roll
Tool: SDR – Reflect and Redirect
If you grew up in the ’80s or ’90s, you probably remember the “Stop, Drop, and Roll” fire safety campaign. When a person’s clothing catches on fire, action must be instinctive and immediate. Without the imminent danger of a fire, we often find ourselves in situations where emotions are running high and we have no time to think. We share a powerful approach to stop, drop and roll that will stop your thoughts from spiralling and prevent your worst impulses from running the show.

From the Inside – Increasing Empathy
Tool: Question Bank
We have evolved and survived as people by being connected. Empathy drives human connection. Recognising and responding to other peoples emotions is both a skill and a choice. We explore the red flag that block our capacity for empathy and consider ways to respond.

Escape The Drama Triangle
Tool: Empowerment Triangle
How do you break the drama triangle? First you have to know what it is. Chances are you have played this power game involving three different roles and you don’t even know it. Sometimes we can get trapped in unconscious and unhelpful roles that keeps us stuck in the triangle. Live from your leadership presence rather than being caught in the drama triangle at work. Find out what your preferred role in the triangle is, and how to escape the drama. Participants will unpack a “poor me” scenario at work, and find a point of leverage to flip the triangle.

Narratives That Shape Us
Tool: Pool of Meaning
“Nothing in this world is good or bad, but thinking makes it so”. This famous line from William Shakespeare rings true when we explore the narratives that shape our reality. Between perception and emotion is the story we tell ourselves about what is happening. To reduce conflict and deepen the pool of meaning we must confront the clever stories we tell ourselves that allow us to feel good about behaving badly. In this session we will use Joseph Grenny’s tool to craft a new and more effective story.

Snakes and Ladders – Perspective Taking
Tool: Ladder of Inference
In today’s fast-moving world, we are always under pressure to act now, rather than spend time reasoning things through. We can quickly find ourselves climbing up a ladder to interesting conclusions. We offer you a fantastic tool to make visible the thinking steps to prevent you from sliding down the snakes. We use The Ladder of Inference to unpack a recent thinking process to illustrate how quickly we climb up the rungs of the ladder, and how to use this to be more effective in collaborating with others.

Tools For Talking
Tool: Talking Stick
Participants will come to the session with their prepared with talking sticks. These sticks represent the company culture. Presentations will unpack key elements of the existing culture. Reflection will unpack the role each participant plays in creating this culture.
