Topic: Coaching Through Barriers: Restoring Partnerships
Partnerships, co-leadership, and collaboration can pose unique challenges in working relationships. When roadblocks emerge they may not only threaten the working relationship, but the stability of the work or organization itself. Team development facilitators and coaches can assist these partners in building bridges that renew the relationship and energize the work, if given the opportunity.
We will discuss a process for coaching a pair of individuals through a major roadblock, as well as how we may position ourselves to gain the opportunities to help restore partnerships.
