May 13-14, 2020: Common Higher Ground Workshop

Keystone’s Common Higher Ground Workshop helps professionals in all sectors develop strategies and build skills for effective decision-making and problem-solving within and beyond their organizations.

Many pressing problems cannot be solved sustainably by one person or party. The workshop is designed for leaders and emerging leaders who need to build a shared vision in the face of apparent differences, whether within a single organization, between organizations, within a community, or across society.

Participants will learn collaborative skills and strategies to increase effectiveness at reaching across silos, convening effective teams, and listening and responding to colleagues, constituents, communities, and other stakeholders. The workshop features learning and practice for each crucial stage of collaborative decision-making, and guides participants in building a toolkit of responses to difficult or sensitive situations.

Format: Two-Day Workshop

Location: Keystone, Colorado

Dates: May 13-14, 2020

  • Day 1: 8:30am-5:00pm
  • Day 2: 8:30am-3:00pm

Tuition: $800 ($550 for government, nonprofit, and academic)
