Driven 2 Collaborate

Driven 2 Collaborate

Why do some groups consistently succeed while others get stuck in a rut? Why do some groups run like a well-oiled machine while others get bogged down in dysfunction?


Driven2Collaborate is a new "solutions retreat" from ForCollegeForLife, perfect for campus groups that need help communicating, planning, and putting goals into action. This highly-interactive, half-day program, will help your team deal with issues such as:

-Building a culture of caring within your team

-Knowing when to lead and when to be an effective follower

-Identifying positive contributions as a non-leader

-Effective communication strategies

-Assessing individual strengths, and putting them to work for the team

-Creating ownership in the group's goals

-Making sure all members of a team feel valued

Our facilitators will work with you to determine your most important priorities, then develop a customized program around the best practices of solid, successful teams. This is perfect for student organization executive boards, collaborative councils, student governments and senates, professional staff, residence life, large student groups, alumni boards, and more.  Whether your team is 5 or 50, we can get them talking and finding common ground.

To begin a discussion of how our facilitators can help get your team moving in a positive direction, give us a call.  We will put you in touch with a facilitator for an initial, no-obligation consultation. From there, we will develop a proposal designed specifically for your team.
