Facilitator: Tom McGehee
Collaboration across boundaries, whether they be business lines, internal teams, or geography is a critical aspect of the talent development professional’s responsibilities these days. Collaborative success is found when diverse perspectives are brought together, have the right conversations, and commit to taking ownership for creating something greater than their individual interests.
For over twenty years Tom McGehee, Founder of WaveChanger, has been helping individuals and organizations accomplish more than they thought possible by equipping them with a process that enables them to have their best collaboration conversations. In this session, Tom will discuss the power of participation, how you currently leverage it in the development and facilitation of learning solutions, and how you can use it to positively impact the engagement of your collaboration partners.

Participants will be able to download multiple tools to help them plan and design collaborative business sessions.
Participants will have a model for applying training design and facilitation techniques to collaborative work design
