Participants will work in small groups to discuss critical examples of, and/or situations in need of an enhanced understanding of collaboration. Together, we will talk though lessons learned from the preceding horse & human presentation or connections made to your own personal and professional experience. How do we support productive change in our perspective and ongoing posture towards relationships to encourage deeper collaboration while maintaining clear and effective pursuit of our mission, vision, and goals?
