About the Program
We’ve all had those meetings…the ones where we find ourselves asking “what is wrong with them?” But what if they are not the problem? What if we just haven’t found the best path to communicate and collaborate with someone whose intellectual processes differ from ours? Collaborative intelligence works to create understanding about the variety of ways people think and process information to foster a stronger sense of collaboration in the workplace. Through a series of practices and strategies, participants will learn how to recognize different mind patterns and map the talents of your teams, with the goal of embarking together on an aligned course of action and influence.

The course is drawn from the book "Collaborative Intelligence" by Dawna Markova, a culmination of more than fifty years of original research that draws on the author’s background in cognitive neuroscience and her work with Professional Thinking Partners. Dr. Rebecca Johannsen has a certification in Collaborative Intelligence from Professional Thinking Partners and the course uses materials developed by Markova to bring theory into practice.

This program works with participants to:

Understand Mind Patterns: Recognize how your mind works and how others’ minds work
Uncovering Thinking Talents: Learning yours and becoming a thinking partner to others
Developing Inquiry: Bridging our differences by discovering your inquiry style and the style of others
Discovering Mind Share: Creating a collaborative future by shifting your mindset and the mindset of others
Who Should Attend
Collaborative Intelligence is for managers and team members who regularly collaborate in any industry. Discover how to use your new understanding of how people process information to make your meetings more productive and positive, aligning your goals, and strengthening your influence.
