    Red Zone and Green Zone Thinking

    Thursday, April 27, 2017, 11:30am - 01:30pm

    Dutch's Daughter, Frederick, MD

    For Registration:

    Red Zone and Green Zone Thinking – How active collaboration drives accountability, allows for truth and openness, and builds trust and a focus on mutual gains in organizations.

    Collaboration is a level of cooperation and active collaboration that goes beyond simply working together. To be proactive and effective, we need to look out for the interests of all parties involved, and keep a focus on mutual gains.   In order to do this, we have to take a pro-active approach to understanding ourselves and others, and find ways to focus on mutual gains, to problem solve, and to create long-term relationships which do away with traditional notions of maximizing personal gains and minimizing losses.

    Entering into interactions from a defensive position, leads to lower collaboration. Defensiveness does not protect us from other people, it defends us from fears we don’t want to feel. By lowering our own defensiveness, we can increase our ability to collaborate and problem solve with others.

    Learning Objectives:

    Gain understanding of the Five Key Skills to building and maintaining long-term climates of trust which promote better collaboration

    Gain understanding of the importance of good collaboration

    Gain understanding of how the way we feel about ourselves and others has a strong influence on our behavior when we act together with other people. This would include an overview of the three dimensions of human behavior – Inclusion, Control & Openness.
