Details: As society becomes more polarized and globalized and organizations become less hierarchical, more of us need to collaborate across increasingly heterogeneous groups than ever before. International consultant Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times in working both on big issues, like economic restructuring, climate change, and civil war, and on ordinary issues within organizations and families. He has come to understand that everything we think we know about collaboration - that it requires a harmonious team that agrees on where it's going and how it's going to get there - is wrong. On the contrary, the only way to get things done with diverse others is to abandon harmony, agreement, and control and to learn to work with discord, experimentation, and genuine co-creation. Kahane proposes a new approach to collaboration - stretch collaboration - that is built on this insight, offering a proven and practical approach to getting things done.
