Collaborative Leadership Programs
Based on his experience as co-founder of Boston Scientific, a pioneer in the disruptive field of less invasive medicine, Kingbridge owner John Abele knows that authentic and productive communication and collaboration are essential enablers to organizational innovation and performance.
When teams come together to address business issues they often need to engage in complex conversations where strong opinions and emotions surface. Participating in these meetings involves much more than an exchange of knowledge and expertise to produce results. It has to do with relating, empathizing, and most importantly sensing and emoting in ways that promote collaboration and relating constructively with each other.
Designing meetings that accelerate collaboration so organizations can do great work together is important to John which is why he designed Kingbridge to be a place where leaders and their teams come to continuously learn and achieve outstanding results by leveraging the collective intelligence of their people.
Most leaders have the technical proficiency to solve problems but how many leaders have strong relational proficiency and what is the cost to an organization if this is lacking within a team. Kingbridge offers an ideal environment and provides a selection of proven programs and tools for understanding and developing the social and emotional skills critical to managerial and executive functioning.
Our highly skilled and passionate Kingbridge partners, who have extensive experience working with national and international organizations to increase their effectiveness with cultural alignment and transformation change look forward to working with you to design your next off-site meeting.
