Practice Cases of Dynamic Collaboration – One year after inspiration seminar – 1st December 2021 – 6-8pm CET (Brussels time)/ Noon-2pm EST (New York time)

A good year ago, Otto Laske and I published our book “Practices of Dynamic Collaboration: A Dialogical Approach to Strengthening Collaborative Intelligence in Teams.

The book resonated with practitioners already working developmentally. In the meantime, there has also been advancing insight, new case studies, and inspiring responses from readers.

We want to share these insights at a “One-year-after inspiration seminar.” We will reflect on the practical translation of the Dynamic Collaboration approach in three moments of the organizational capital value chain: (re)designing roles, estimating role interpretation, and dealing with differences in perspective intake in the development of winning teams. We do this using two recent case studies in two different industries and offer answers to the question of how to create breakthroughs in cross-unit, transdisciplinary collaboration in your company.

More information about the book:

This book provides managers and team leaders with tools for boosting the quality of team dialogue for the sake of strengthening role ownership and creating collaborative intelligence throughout an organization. The authors provide a new, research-based paradigm for composing, managing, and linking teams that is rooted in dialogical thinking and critical of fallacies of logical thinking as to how the ‘real world’ works.

The book:

  • provides analysis and intervention tools for boosting self-management and creating collaborative intelligence in teams;
  • supportively critiques conventional managerial thinking from a perspective of research on the cognitive and emotional development of human capital;
  • features demonstrations on how to create and structure high-quality team dialogue, team linkage, and team governance;
  • re-thinks organizations as dialogue spaces in which to reframe diverse perspectives on work and on synthesizing human and algorithmic intelligence;
  • assists organizations in finding an equilibrium between hierarchy and self-organization in support of both mental and financial growth.
