Collaboration skills are no longer a nice to have...

In times of increasing complexity and constant change, collaboration skills are no longer a nice to have. They have become a vital asset both for individuals and for organizations. Radical Collaboration, an approach that has been used by many large institutions across the world, invites you to understand yourself better, to check your assumptions about other people, and to transform your relationships by taking them from the Red Zone to the Green Zone.

What is it & what motivates you to join this training?

Radical Collaboration teaches practical methods to significantly improve your skills for building collaborative relationships. These skills can be learned quickly and easily by any individual. Once individuals possess the necessary collaborative skills we can create teams and organisations where collaboration thrives.

This training is for you if you...

  • Want to be able to create an atmosphere where people feel safe to tell their truth

Arne Reis

Certified Radical Collaboration Trainer // HR Consultant and Transformation Facilitator at HRpepper // Co-Founder The Arc Training

Arne has been fascinated with collaboration ever since he started working in intercultural and interdisciplinary teams as a member of the European Students' Forum AEGEE. For him, finding out about FIRO, one of the core theories of Radical Collaboration, was a major turning point back in 2009. Professionally, this discovery sent him on the path of becoming a trainer, coach, and facilitator who loves working with diverse groups of people. Personally, it helped him understand his strange habit of escaping from clubs and parties without telling his friends. Arne is eager to share this and other collaborative adventure stories with you at the training in Berlin.
