Building Bridges: Collaboration at Work (Robson Square) - HP215

Having to work with others is a common requirement in the workplace. When collaboration successfully occurs, you feel positive, productive, and willing to face challenges.

This session will build on the notion that cooperation and building bridges can be learned and should be practiced. It will teach participants the key elements of teamwork and provide them with the opportunity to practice collaboration-building techniques.

The facilitator of the session will be provided by UBC's Employee and Family Assistance Program provider, Shepell. This free workshop is available to all UBC staff and faculty and will take place at UBC's Robson Square campus.

By the end of the session, you will be able to:

  • Understand emotional reactions and what their underlying causes may be;
  • Discuss human motivators and ways to address them for increased collaboration; and
  • Identify relationship-building strategies.
