The most daunting social and environmental challenges of our day can’t be solved through individual action, no matter how heroic. What does it really take to catalyze diverse groups of people, within organizations or across sectors, to build trust, take action, and work together to achieve uncommon results? This webinar is for organizational and network leaders who recognize that real progress requires collaborative approaches involving multiple actors and resources across departments, organizations, and sectors. This webinar is also for leaders seeking new insights into how to build trust, lead authentic conversations, and catalyze generous collaboration across teams, organizations, and networks.

David Haskell is cofounder and CEO of Dreams InDeed, a strengthener of indigenous social entrepreneurs in hard places of sectarian violence, such as the Middle East and Southeast Asia. While his Harvard and UCLA graduate studies sharpened that approach, Haskell’s most profound teachers about being fully human have been street kids, genocide survivors, and the mentally challenged. Resident expert and sector advisor at the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship at Oxford University, Haskell has presented on vision- and values-driven networked approaches for collective impact at American University of Beirut, Adelphi, Berkeley, Duke, Harvard, Notre Dame, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford, and Tufts.
