This handbook from the Fund for Our Economic Future examines behaviors that foster effective collaboration and provides lessons that aim to influence the thinking, beliefs, and behaviors of funders, individuals, partners, and leaders: “Collaboration is both a process and a set of behaviors. Our Fund has learned how to design and implement processes that are required to catalyze enduring, positive change. And we have learned what behaviors, particularly the behaviors of key leaders within the complex civic systems in which we work (e.g., workforce development), foster effective collaboration. These lessons are relevant to achieving change in other complex civic systems, including public health, education, housing, and safety, that shape the quality of life in our communities.”
