TOOL | Collaborate: 5 Ideas to Consider

Collective Impact, Collaborative Leadership, Tools

When organizations attempt to develop large-scale collaborations in an effort to impact systemic change, two issues typically arise early in the discussions. The first is a desire to reach out to organizations that are alike. Non-profits mainly want to talk to other non-profits, businesses want to talk to businesses and public sector organizations and governments seek the same. The second issue is that organizational leaders want to move to action quickly without taking the time to engage broadly.

With this tool, Paul Born offers advice to those holding large-scale conversations and provides five ideas to consider for collaboration.
