This experiential workshop will offer participants the hands-on opportunity to reflect and learn skills that support effective teamwork, enhance cooperation and commitment to achieve shared goals. Drawing on the experience of the Public Conversations Project (www.publicconversations.org), participants will learn how to strengthen working relationships, build trust and enhance collaboration in diverse environments. Participants will learn how reflection, inquiry, curiosity, and other scientific skills can be applied creatively to bridge differences. These skills are equally applicable when working with principal investigators, colleagues, and human beings, in general.
