The transportation challenges that face North American cities cannot be solved by one person, or even one agency. Getting stuff done requires meaningful collaboration and strong relationships that overcome agency and department divides.
Come to this session ready to share your experiences and leave with ideas, strategies, and tools to strengthen your working relationships to build better projects faster in a more amiable work environment. Hear from cities that practice smart relationship-building and how their approaches have benefited their work and project delivery.
After hearing panelists’ stories, you’ll break out into small groups to think critically about how to apply different relationship-building lessons and principles to your own work. Come with your team or come alone; by the end of the session you’ll have a list of strategies to take back to the workplace that will help you (and your inter-agency colleagues) go that extra mile together.
Session Format: Moderated panel discussion & workshop
