The challenges and opportunities we face require us to engage in unconventional collaboration with unlikely allies.
As we start a new year and a new U.S. administration, we face daunting challenges: democracy, health, economy, equity, climate. All these challenges are more difficult to address by deep differences and divisions.
None of the issues we face can be addressed unilaterally. They require us to collaborate-- including with people we do not agree with, like, or trust.
It’s not easy, but it is possible. Reos Partners know how.
Adam Kahane, Monica Pohlmann, and their colleagues at Reos Partners have worked with all of these challenges before. For the last 30 years Reos has worked with companies, governments, and nonprofits, all around the world. They know how to help diverse people collaborate for breakthrough impact.
In this interactive webinar, the team will share what they have learned from their hands-on experience:
Adam Kahane (presenter) has worked in more than fifty countries across the world, with changemakers like executives and politicians, generals and guerrillas, civil servants and trade unionists, community activists and United Nations officials, clergy and artists. He is the author of Solving Tough Problems, Power and Love, Transformative Scenario Planning, Collaborating with the Enemy, and the forthcoming Facilitating Breakthrough. Before joining Reos, Adam was head of Social, Political, Economic and Technological Scenarios for Royal Dutch Shell and held strategy and research positions with the Universities of Oxford, Toronto, British Columbia, California, and the Western Cape.
Monica Pohlmann (presenter) has 25 years of experience designing and guiding collaborative initiatives. She is driven by the vision that it is possible to make our societies and organizations better by bringing together diverse people and perspectives to recreate our systems and ourselves. Monica is a leading expert in Social Labs and has led the development and evolution of numerous new labs, including the Emergency Aid Lab, which is focused on college student success and is supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Manuela Restrepo (moderator) designs and facilitates processes to address complex challenges at local and national levels. She has been able to bring her global awareness to Reos Partners by working on projects relating to peace and security, corporate development, national futures and diversity in Canada, Colombia, Mexico, Ethiopia and the United States. Manuela works fluently in English, French, and Spanish.
