As a leader today, we know you face complex, multi-faceted challenges that require you to collaborate with diverse actors. To achieve systemic change and make a real impact in your community and around the globe, leaders cannot simply preach to the choir—we must learn to work effectively with people we don’t necessarily agree with, may not like, and often don’t trust.
In his new book, Collaborating with the Enemy: How to Work with People You Don’t Agree with or Like or Trust, Adam Kahane tackles this challenge of creating across diversity.
On October 12th, RADIUS SFU and SFU Innovates are excited to present Adam Kahane in downtown Vancouver for a keynote lecture based on this best-selling new book. Tickets are available now.
Having worked alongside highly heterogeneous systemic change teams all around the world for 25 years, Kahane has learned that collaboration is becoming increasingly necessary and also increasingly difficult. He has also learned that the conventional models of collaboration, which focus on agreement, certainty, and control, are becoming obsolete.
The last time Adam Kahane was in town, the event sold out in moments. If you had the pleasure of attending that lecture, you know why! You won’t want to miss this chance to learn from one of the best. Tickets are $20 and you can purchase your ticket now.
Making this event accessible is important to RADIUS. If you would like to attend and cost is a barrier, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Raincoast Books will be on site with copies of all of Adam’s books, including his new best-seller, Collaborating with the Enemy.
