For most of us today, collaboration is essential as silos become more fluid and cross-functional and intra-team (across team) work becomes a reality. Collabration and partnerships are not always easy, and can benefit from some pre-planning, especially if the stakes are high or you will be needing to collaborate on a regular basis.
Collaboration and boosting our coaching skills to help team members collaborate more effectively was one of the many themes I was exploring with a group this week during a two day coaching and mentoring skills training program I was leading. As we discussed, collaboration is absolutely essential for not only ourselves as leaders, as well as the entire team.
You can read past posts I where I have addressed the topic of collaboration here at the Teams 365 blog.
