This program is being co-led by Jason Gore, a Senior Consultant at the
Collaborative Way, and Doshin Roshi, a Zen Master and founder of Integral Zen.
At this interactive event, we will explore six practices that will support you in
collaborating in business, in projects, and in community. We will also explore
each practice from an Integral Zen perspective and how they result in personal
and community growth.
We all come to groups & projects with different backgrounds and expectations
about how we’re supposed to work and be together. As a result, we are prone to
ineffectiveness, misunderstanding and upset. In order to create an environment
conducive to collaboration and growth, we need to design and take on learning
an intentional way of working and being together.
Creating a culture of collaboration goes far beyond just white-boarding a set of
values or practices. A structure for ongoing learning is essential. Without this,
a group or organization is left with a set of values that are not fully understood,
only sometimes abided by, and rarely reinforced.
Come to this evening event to learn about one intentionally-designed set of
practices for collaboration and how they can be effectively implemented in your
teams and organizations. These rubber-meets-the-road practices are practical
and can be immediately implemented. They are based on the Collaborative
Way® and can be seen at www.collaborativeway.com.
As Jason overviews the practices that will help you create high-performance
teams, Doshin Roshi will discuss how these same practices are a fast-track to
authenticity, clarity of mind, and selfless compassion—the essence of what it
means to be human.
We intend for this evening to be fun, practical, and enlightening.
