Effective Collaboration – How to Achieve Success, Save Time, and Keep People Happy

Charmaine Hammond May 23, 2021

Headline:  As a former corrections officer,  Charmaine Hammond practiced the art of collaboration in one of the most conflict-ridden and hostile work environments. She is now the leading authority on collaboration for businesses, non-profit organizations and governments.

Effective Collaboration – How to Achieve Success, Save Time, and Keep People Happy

According to a survey by Salesforce, 86% of employees and executives cite lack of collaboration and ineffective communication for workplace failures. In a fast-paced environment where everyone is pushing their agenda-of-the-day, effective collaboration can often get lost – resulting in delayed projects, unhappy stakeholders and lots of wasted time.

Drawing on principles she’s refined over the past 20 years, Charmaine will demonstrate the tools of effective collaboration – showing how to build proper relationships, engage resistant people, and effectively deal with contentious issues on the spot.

Using the film Back Home Again as a case study  (Charmaine Hammond is Executive Producer of, and co-speaker Michael Mankowski is screenwriter/director), the speakers will share examples of how to engage influencers, how to create and structure cross sector/multi party collaboration to create a bigger impact and maximum engagement through collaboration and relationship capital.
