Fostering a collaborative culture through effective business practice at NAIT
MetadataShow full item record
This organizational leadership project investigated how the employees at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) may enhance their collaboration across departments, in particular, when managing key data systems. An action research methodology, with an appreciative stance, reflected on how NAIT can leverage its value of collaboration when facilitating projects that impact multiple stakeholders. A learning circle and four individual interviews provided the space for NAIT staff members to share their success stories about collaboration and also how their personal values align with NAIT's values. The recommendations demonstrated the desire for the fulfilment of individual growth and nurturing of passion through empowerment. Leadership training and mentorship were identified as crucial elements for supporting individuals in fostering their collaborative capacity.
