Cambridge, MA, July 20, 2009 -- The 40-year innovator of advanced methods for developing leaders, Interaction Associates, and its nonprofit sister organization, the 16-year Interaction Institute for Social Change, have partnered to present a special leadership development session that emphasizes cross-sector collaboration in Portland, Maine at the Greater Than Conference, July 26-28, 2009.
The session, entitled "Accelerating Leaders' Competence for Cross Sector Collaboration," examines the opportunities created by a growing awareness of the importance of sustainability for 21st Century leaders. "We are excited to share our research and experience with the cross sector leaders participating in the Greater Than conference," said Linda Dunkel, President and CEO of Interaction Associates. "We know this session will create excitement and momentum for leaders attending Greater Than, spurring them to do even more in the areas of economic, environmental and social sustainability," Dunkel said.
According to the Greater Than Conference organizers, organizations facing finite resources and complex challenges are partnering across sectors to effect change and get more powerful results.
Recent research into the intersecting areas of trust, leadership and collaboration conducted on behalf of Interaction Associates revealed that one characteristic of high-performing organizations is that organization members have a strong sense of shared purpose. "This drive for a shared purpose is one of the reasons that sustainability, as well as collaboration, is of great interest to for-profit and non-profit organizations alike," Dunkel said.
