Trust in Action Conference Workshop
The Art & Science of Trust in International Public-Private Partnerships
Discuss real-life cases to explore the “art” and “science” of maintaining long-term, constructive partnerships.
International, long-term partnerships between businesses, universities and governments need a strong solid foundation. These partnerships unite different organizations with different goals, capabilities and mind sets. Maintaining long term constructive collaboration is a continuous balancing act between ‘’Science’’ and ‘’Art’’.
The ‘’Science’’ to make fact-based decisions, be interculturally competent, manage risks and measure & adjust continuously. The ‘’Art’’ to leverage personal relations, emotions, and politics, using your intuition, being able to deal with unpredictable challenges, having a constructive level of emotional intelligence and being a great listener / communicator. Together, we will discuss real life examples where Trust in Action went right or wrong due to the balance or imbalance between Science & Art.
