While leading collaborations can be some of the most rewarding impact work, it can also be overwhelming and isolating on the other. Those who convene, co-ordinate and facilitate collaborations can feel overwhelmed. They may lack a roadmap, tools and the support to progress their initiative. They may also feel isolated and lack access to peers to lean on for sharing experiences, insights, tools and tips. This Community of Practice seeks to address these challenges.
David Lilley, Director of Holos Consulting and CFI Associate, will convene the NSW Collaborative Community of Practice. David will also send out an agenda for the learning conversation to assist with your preparation.
You should sign up for joining the NSW Collaborative Community of Practice if you are:
- A Backbone leader or team member
- A member of a cross sector leadership table
- Chair/leader of a working group
The objectives of the NSW Collaborative Community of Practice are to increase effectiveness of collaborative initiatives across NSW through:
- Shared mutual support, learning, tools and resources.
- A supportive network of peers experiencing similar challenges and assisting them to take effective action to progress their projects.
The NSW Collaborative Community of Practice is FREE
