My thanks to you for taking a moment to pause and reflect with me on some notes about wise choices.
Wisdom. It's an idea that's proliferating fast in the business world. How about the practice where you are?
Collaboration is hard-wired into our nature. That doesn't make it easy, though. We want creativity but as soon as differences arise, there’s tension and possible dissonance. We want to bring our A-game to working together and achieving outstanding results, but plenty of times, the default self takes over and we cope for “good enough,” "staying under the radar" or to “get it over with.”
Three essential building blocks for a positive collaboration culture are: Appreciation, Agreements and Accountability. Together they build trust and allow for creative synergy.
