Awareness

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Collaboration must start with awareness.  Each collaboration is organic and evolves according to the individuals, emotions, perceptions and agendas involved. The collaborative leader must have the awareness and skill to find the commonalities and differences among participants and gain their trust. From this point, the collaboration can be commonly defined and the way forward identified.

What is the key to effective collaboration? Knowing that we need each other. Collaboration assumes a coming together.  In this coming together differences arise, similarities are identified and if effective, we end up better than we started. A Japanese proverb states that none of us is as smart as all of us. That’s a great starting point for collaboration.
