- Deep dive workshops with tools and coaching, tailored to where you are in your collaborative change process. If you are just getting started, setting an agenda, or implementing and sustaining collaboration, we have specific workshops for you.
- Snapshots of successes and failures from cross-sector leaders who are collaborating and achieving measurable change in their communities or sectors on complex challenges.
- An immersion into community engagement learning with citizen leaders on why and how to engage.
To build the practice and learning of Australia’s collaborations, we are also launching:
- The Australian Collaborative Change Process, developed by Collaboration for Impact. The model is the result of four years of on-the-ground practice, expertise and development. It articulates the stages, practices, leadership and tools required to achieve large-scale social change.
- The Collaboration Health Assessment Tool. This innovative online self-assessment tool provides a guide to the health of your collaboration. Developed and tested by Collaboration for Impact in partnership with the Centre for Social Impact, the tool will assist collaborations across Australia in self-identifying their progress and creating a plan for development.
