Collaboration & Organisational Culture
This course will integrate elements of collaborative working, co-operative behaviours, knowledge sharing and organisational culture. Participants will be able to explore collaborative working within their organisation and critically discuss how teams form and function.

Participants will be asked to analyse the barriers to effective collaboration within the context of their own environment and reflect upon their own interpersonal skills in response to these challenges.  Participants will then develop an action plan that will ensure their organisation will have the appropriate skills and talents to manage and measure collaboration to achieve strategic growth.

All our growth courses are recommended for those interested in successfully growing a business. Our courses are most appropriate for employees in SME’s with a growth ambition. However, they are also appropriate for employees of larger organisations who are seeking support in growing a subdivision of the company or who lead a team with a growth objective.

All Fit4Energy courses are energy-focused and delivered in partnership with industry.

Fit4Energy equips participants with energy sector-specific skills and knowledge to plan for implementing growth.  

The course has been developed with industry stakeholders and draws on energy sector insights, case studies and global best practice.

The course will be delivered through 3 workshops. These are designed to engage businesses and help to tackle the unique challenges and opportunities presented in global markets and product innovation.
