Radical Collaboration > More about
In the training called Radical Collaboration ™ two main technologies co-exist promising to together create a reliable framework for bringing out the potentially constructive riches in conflicts, and to enrich to possibility and success of cooperation. The first one of these two technologies in Radical Collaboration ™ can be described as interest based problem solving that has gotten its inspiration mainly from the so called Harvard Negotiation Project.
About the first technology in Radical Collaboration ™
Here is clarified a process that with the aid of Radical Collaboration ™ structures dialogues in a way that allows people to reach agreement based on reconsiliation of interests and needs that are hidden beneath the surface of seemingly contradictory positions. Interest based problem solving is, toghether with the belief that people are more likely to support and follow through on solutions that they are part of making decisions about, are core parts in this process for conflict management.
About the second technology in Radical Collaboration ™
Radical Collaboration ™ takes the above described method for problem solving and combines it with another technology to on a deeper level understand human interaction and individual awareness. This second method is the so called Human Element, created by the american psychologist Will Schutz. For this technology he also created corresponding instruments such as Firo-B to predict the interaction between to persons.
Four quadrants in Radical Collaboration ™
One can say that Radical Collaboration ™ identifies and addresses four quadrants regarding conflicts. The first is the content field which includes matter issues, concerns and problems, which are often measurable and concrete in different forms. The second quadrant interacts with the first and consists of those methods for problem solving that individuals bring in to different situations and which exist as cultural norms in organisations.
The third quadrant is the one of the individual, where we find subjective, non-measurable and often not fully clearly expressed intentions, attitudes and self awareness. Finally the fourth field in the Radical Collaboration ™ concept which deals with the interpersonal dynamics, meaning the dynamic between people. This quadrant is also more of a subjective area regarding understanding, sincerity and connection between people.
Through Radical Collaboration ™ you get the opportunity to both in theory and practice work with these four quadrant which can be an essential part of your leadership development.
