Collaboration is “in.” It’s everywhere.
It goes hand-in-glove with effective leadership.

“Groovy” or not, it is tricky to keep high-performance collaboration going without getting bogged down in conflict or inertia.

Yes, most partnerships and teams start off with good intentions and even good prospects for success. At some point, though, what began in an energetic upward spiral becomes a downward spiral of people and projects getting derailed.

Commonly, people experience an oscillating pattern of things getting better and then getting worse. If that oscillation doesn’t take an overall upward trend, however, talented and well-intentioned people burn out. They disengage, become polarized and antagonistic. They stop listening or stop offering their best ideas or honest differences of opinion. Meetings become tedious, vaguely stressful and unproductive. Far too much energy is diverted by distraction, wasted time and energy, lack of focus, inefficiency, and loss of creativity and initiative.

What happened? Is this just how it is and how it has to be? What a grind!

All along, what you really want is to find your “groove”…together…and make great things happen. When business partnerships form and teams get together it’s meant to be fun and lucrative. You’re there to open new, exciting frontiers. Imagine how exhilarating it is to be in a partnership or on a team where people interact in ways that create and sustain an upward spiral of creativity! Where ideas are quickly and easily exchanged and continuously improved. You harvest the diversity of collaborative relationships as a source of higher intelligence and productivity. The whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts. Awesome!

Ok, so what’s an essential missing link, core to the special recipe for collaboration that hums? … Trust.

Yes. Trust. Difficulties with conflict management, miscommunication and dysfunction boil down to trust. Trust with distinctions and actionable frameworks that work in business settings.
Really work.
