This workbook was created to support “Working Together to Get Things Done,” a two-day training designed to build participant capacity to work collaboratively with people who have different priorities, viewpoints, and knowledge to achieve mutual goals. The training and this workbook are based on Dr. Christine Feurt’s adaptation of the Collaborative Learning methodology described in Working Through Environmental Conflict: The Collaborative Learning Approach (Daniels and Walker 2002).

The training described in this workbook is available in 1/2, 1 and 2 day format and may be scheduled by contacting Dr. Feurt at
