In this webinar, the Partnership Brokers Association hosts Adam Kahane in discussion about his most recent book: Collaborating with the Enemy: How to Work with People You Don't Agree with Or Like Or Trust.
Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times, working on big issues like democracy and jobs and climate change, and on everyday issues in organizations and families. Collaborating with the Enemy addresses an increasingly central challenge of our time: how we can deal effectively with complex and conflictual situations that we find problematic and want to change, but that—no matter how much we wish to—we cannot change alone or by working only with our colleagues and friends. The book offers a simple framework (“stretch collaboration”) and set of practices (three “stretches”) for working with this kind of situation.
The Partnership Brokers Association is the international professional body for those managing and developing collaboration processes. The Association is an experiment in creating a collaborative entity that can embrace a level of ambiguity and complexity. Our growing network of trained partnership brokers operate in all sectors and on all continents. They are skilled and committed change-makers who know when to step up and when to step back so that partnerships can flourish and transform our world.
These practices offer a fresh perspective on the range and adaptability of skills that Partnership Brokers need to work in transformative space.
We suggest reading the book before our call, it will help you get more out of our time together and help to deepen our learning in the conversation.
