Powering collaborative impact

The connection between individuals and organizations is broken.

  • 3/4 of businesses have changed structures to adapt to new ways of working, but only 1 in 5 has led to more collaboration.
  • 76% of workers enjoy collaboration, and 49% say they need more of it to perform well.
  • 2/3 of workers believe their organization will not change the way it works and collaborates, but believe it needs to.

It’s time to reimagine collaboration

Work has changed and collaboration needs a radical reboot. We must move away from the old efficiency-based model and toward a new social and community-centric way of working.

The organizations that will thrive are those that align people around a common purpose and provide clarity on how individual efforts contribute. The new era of work demands a new model of leadership that values collaboration and inclusion at every level.

What employees want

How it all comes together

Collaborative Impact happens when people come together around a shared purpose to learn and collaborate. It unlocks the group’s potential for positive solutions and progress toward a common strategic goal.
