Welcome to Round Sky Solutions’ Online Course, Collab 101!
We know this material might be brand new to you, and you’ll likely have a lot of questions when you start implementing these practices. There are multiple ways to receive support in Collab™ 101. We encourage you to participate in the forums. This community holds a lot of brilliance! Ask and answer questions here. The Live Calls are another great place to ask questions about the content of the course and the Collab™ practices.
If neither of those make sense for your question or you have other feedback, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strive to reply to your questions within 24 hours, Monday to Friday.

Maximize the Benefit of Collab 101
All course participants understand that to strengthen their shared leadership through the course, they must complete all the lessons. You have 8 lessons packed with a training video, invaluable resources and tools, and learning activities. The Learning Activities in each lesson are listed in suggested order. Please enjoy and take advantage of all the resources we’ve crafted and compiled for you.
Engage in the Forums
All course participants, instructors, and assistants agree to participate in and contribute to the forums for each lesson. We’ve built this space for you to share your experiences with a community of collaborative leaders, and to move your practices of Collab forward as a community. We have some prompting questions to get you thinking, but feel free to make this space what you need it to be. Share your experiences and resources with other participants. Ask and answer questions. This works best when everyone supports each other.
Respect Yourself and Others
All course participants, instructors, and assistants agree to share and respond on the forums respectfully with a focus on sharing our experience and learning rather than telling others what they should or could be doing, unless specifically invited to do so.
We all have different communication styles and perspectives on life. This diversity makes for learning opportunities and enriches our lives in many ways. However, these differences can also make us uncomfortable. If you find yourself feeling reactive to another participant please make a note of your reactivity and do your best to respond (if response is needed) in a manner that generates relationship. In some cases, the easiest way to do this is to ask further questions.
If you have any questions or concerns about your own or another’s disrespectful participation, please contact us immediately at email@example.com.
Attend the Live Calls
All course participants, instructors, and assistants attend and participate in as many Live Calls as possible for the duration of the time you are engaging with the course. This is your opportunity to ask questions in person and go into greater depth about the course materials with the instructors. Live Calls are not mandatory, but they are HIGHLY encouraged. Even if you don’t have any questions or feel prepared, you will learn a lot simply from other people’s questions. Find the schedule on the sidebar of the course platform. Please join us if you are available. Become familiar with all the details below.
All course participants, instructors, and assistants agree to maintain complete confidentiality around identity of all participants and to refrain from discussing details of the course in a manner which would compromise that confidentiality for any participant during or after the course. If we wish to quote from forum contributions outside this forum, we will obtain the written permission of the author of the post prior to doing so. In addition, Round Sky Solutions shall not distribute contact information for participants in the course. If you wish to share your contact information with another, that is at your choice and discretion.
Challenge by Choice
All course participants, instructors, and assistants agree to engage with others only to the extent that is healthy for them. In other words, if something is going to cause you harm, please don’t do it. No one else knows us like we do. Challenges will be provided, as will support, and you should expect some discomfort as part of the natural cycles of change as you implement these practices. Please use your own best judgement as to what to engage with and to what degree, you do not have to disclose anything you do not wish to.
Connect and Share with Other Participants
All course participants, instructors, and assistants are free to share, as they see fit, about the mission-driven ventures they are a part of in the forum segments dedicated to this purpose. This includes any news, upcoming events, articles, fundraising requests and beyond. Please share with the knowledge that each of us will respond, or not, as we wish and that there is no implicit pressure to support each other financially or in other intangible ways, beyond participation in this course.
