The Convergence Learning Lab’s training and consultation services empower leaders with the necessary skills to bridge these divides resulting in more cohesive and effective teams, more constructive stakeholder engagement, and, ultimately, better business outcomes.

Lab services are built on our unique, evidence-based collaborative problem-solving methodology which has been used to successfully address seemingly intractable political, social, organizational, and community-based issues.

Create High Performing Teams

Conflicts, tensions, and divisions within teams are bad for business. They derail strategic initiatives, stall innovation, and decrease morale. Teams require collaboration, strong working relationships, and open communication. We help businesses identify underlying causes of conflict and develop actionable plans to build collaborative relationships, engage across divisions, and improve outputs to thrive in a dynamic and competitive landscape.

Break Down Silos

Silos are inevitable in organizations. They hinder communication, transparency, and collaboration, and can negatively impact performance. Breaking down these silos will enhance productivity, improve the customer experience, and drive innovation. We help businesses identify silos and develop approaches to improve collaboration across teams to ensure the best experience for your customers.

Engage Stakeholders

Stakeholder engagement and management is increasingly difficult, especially during times of heightened division and polarization. Stakeholder engagement is critical to managing risks, building trust and credibility, and enhancing strategic decision-making. We help businesses identify gaps in their stakeholder engagement approaches and develop strategies to leverage stakeholder relationships, improve communication, and build trust with diverse stakeholders.
