Strategic Doing Practitioner Training: Leading Complex Collaborations – San Antonio

May 15 @ 9:00 am - May 17 @ 12:00 pm


In this 2.5 day training, you’ll learn everything you need to know to begin thinking differently about collaboration, how to help groups have different – and more productive – kinds of conversations, and how to make sure that conversation turns into action.

We use a simulation  – you’ll be learning Strategic Doing by doing it – as well as plenty of time for unpacking why it works so you can make it your own. On the last half-day, you’ll have time to consider how to start using Strategic Doing to approach your own challenges, and get assistance from the instructors as well as your peers. Participants receive a copy of the book: Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership (Wiley, 2019), a workbook, as well as access to an online library of resources.

You’ll be a Strategic Doing “practitioner” after this training, able to lead a group in tackling collaborative undertaking using Strategic Doing. Get your new approach off the ground successfully after the training by becoming a Certified Workshop Leader. Certification involves planning and carrying out an implementation of your new skills under the guidance of an experienced “coach,” gathering feedback, and creating a portfolio of documents about the experience. Certified Workshop Leaders are listed in the Strategic Doing website’s directory, and have access to a broader range of library resources to help them in their work.

Note: while not an official part of the annual conference for the National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP), we’ve scheduled this sessions so that NORDP conference attendees can take advantage of the opportunity. Come to San Antonio a few days early and add to your set of tools to help researchers effectively collaborate.
