For many people, training conjures up memories of high school or university classes, where the majority of courses were delivered via lectures. Although captivating public speakers do exist, the lecture remains a passive learning tool with a focus on one-way communcation.

At Sector Learning Solutions, we recognize that the most successful learning environments involve instructors acting as facilitators to work together with learners to achieve their goals.

With that in mind, we’d like to introduce our guest blogger Shawn Steele, who has joined us to say a few words on collaboration and and present an engaging opportunity for you to learn more.

Collaboration is defined as the action of working together in order to achieve a common goal.  Collaboration can be used to improve communication amongst team members, for managing projects, for future planning, for work with other organizations, and for many other important purposes.  Collaboration can greatly enhance an organization’s performance and requires experienced leaders equipped with the related skills in order to introduce a culture of collaboration effectively.  Collaboration is applicable in any work environment and with teams of any size; regardless if the organization is in the corporate, non-profit, or public sector.

The Leadership Victoria collaboration workshop will describe the considerations needed to initiate collaboration, will introduce key skills needed to facilitate collaboration, and will show you the elements required to sustain a collaborative work environment.

Leadership Victoria is pleased to present collaboration workshops facilitated by Beth Page of Dream Catcher Consulting in conjunction with partners the United Way of Greater Victoria, RBC, and RBC Foundation.

Join us for the “Introduction to Leading Collaborative Initiatives” half day session on Tuesday, November 8, from 5:00pm until 9:00pm at the Victoria Executive Centre at 915 Fort Street.  The cost is $30 per person, or $50 for two or more participants, and space is limited to the first 25 participants.  To register please contact Layla at Leadership Victoria by email at or by phone at 250-386-2269.
