The Spark Series invites nonprofit executive leaders to step outside of daily routines and join us for an afternoon designed to spark new thinking and foster brilliant leadership. Spark Series events are made possible by US Bank.
For this year's Spark Series, the Colorado Nonprofit Association is partnering with The Civic Canopy to bring Adam Kahane and Ian Prinsloo to Denver to present Collaborating with the Enemy.
As change agents and community leaders, we often need to work with people we don’t agree with, like, or trust to get something done. Adam Kahane’s new book dispels the myth of conventional collaboration and instead embraces discord, experimentation, and genuine cocreation as a more effective means to the end. His stretch collaboration approach “offers a way to move forward without being in control, like multiple teams rafting a river.”
All participants will receive a copy of the book included with their registration fee. Immediately following the lecture we invite you to continue the conversation and network with community leaders during a social hour.
