As a Senior Consultant with Interaction Associates, Betina Schonberger helps organizations build individual and collective capacities in the areas of strategy, collaboration, facilitation and leadership development. She co-creates and facilitates engagements tailored to address an organization's unique challenges and goals. Betina has worked for and with global Fortune 500 companies, non-profits and government helping to accelerate their successes through strategic partnership development, people-oriented management, customer engagement and cross-functional collaboration.

In the modern workplace, command and-control leadership is out, replaced by a way of leading that emphasizes collaboration and participation. We know that if we include the people affected by our decisions in the decision-making process, we get better ideas and more buy-in, but the process can take time and may bring up unresolved issues. And there's a risk of frustrating people who provide input and don't see their ideas reflected in the final decision. So, how do you know who to involve in a collaborative decision-making process, and when?  

Collaboration doesn't mean that all decisions should be made by consensus. Leaders who believe that abdicate their responsibilities and become passive members of their team, or waste time and energy in unnecessary rounds of agreement building. Instead, leaders need to make conscious choices about how much collaboration is appropriate for each decision. After all, there are many degrees of collaboration between making a decision unilaterally and delegating it.

In this conversation we will explore the various levels of involvement in decision-making and practice applying the process to real world situations. The session will be highly interactive enabling participants to learn from and connect with each other.
