Here's what I wrote back in Teams365 #904. Consider what questions are important for you right now:
"One of the core skills in today’s workplace is collaboration. Collaboration allows us to harness the best of two or more individuals together.
Collaboration allows us to
- Leverage the best
- Make sure we have the right people on board
- Harness talent
- Sometimes come to a better solution
Multiple skill-sets and perspectives are needed
Input from different sources can be valuable
Sustainability of the initiative rests on multiple players
It is high stakes – important to get it right
Many of these warrant the time and effort it takes to collaborate well
Questions to consider
What does collaboration currently look like?
What can collaboration look like?
What are the benefits of current collaboration? Future collaboration?
What do we each bring of value to this partnership?
When is collaboration not useful?"
Enjoy your Friday and reach out to me if you would like to set up a time to discuss how we could support your teamwork and training, virtually.
