Whether it’s climate change, healthcare or criminal justice, the biggest policy challenges cross over multiple jurisdictions and require public servants to collaborate to get things done. When done successfully, collaboration is one of the most effective ways to cut costs, save time and improve policy outcomes.

That’s why we’ve created this bite-sized, 5-day crash course. We’ll walk you through practical ways to build the skills necessary for being a better collaborator, from relationship-building to communication to creative problem-solving.
