Do OD events

A Conversation about Collaboration

Take a look at the graphics from our series of events that we held with colleagues from the NHS, social care, the Fire Service and employers organisations.

Taking time to think about the challenges, opportunities and our experiences of collaboration helped to create a safe space to discuss our respective contexts and how we have collaborated in the past. Using OD theory we considered how we might move from transactional to more transformational models of collaboration.

Lots of energy and ideas were generated during the events which were expertly captured by Ellie from Download and share the graphics from Bristol, London and Leeds. We hope that they stimulate conversation by asking questions such as:

  • Where do we find the space to collaborate?
  • How do we define collaboration?
  • How can we have the best conversations about collaboration?
  • Where and how can we bring good examples of collaboration to the surface?
