We live in a world of vast collaborative potential. Yet, all too often, powerful boundaries create borders that splinter groups into ‘Us’ and ‘Them’, leading to limited possibilities and uninspiring results. To transform these borders into innovative frontiers in today’s global, multi-stakeholder organizations, focus on six boundary spanning practices:

  • Buffering defines boundaries to create safety

  • Reflecting creates understanding of boundaries to foster respect

  • Connecting suspends boundaries to build trust

  • Mobilizing reframes boundaries to develop community

  • Weaving interlaces boundaries to advance interdependence

  • Transforming cross-cuts boundaries to enable reinvention

  • Participant workbook complete with content and guided practice exercises

  • Interactive sessions to have "real talk"
