Top performance requires collaboration. A group working together achieves much more than the same number of individuals working solo or in competition.
Collaboration requires an investment by each individual involved. He or she must be willing to show up with his or her qualities, pitfalls, desires and resistance. And he or she must be willing to listen actively and attentively to other team members, to learn from them. So be who you are and engage with others.
A good way to exercise your collaboration muscle is to engage into a dialogue. Dialogues improve the collaboration in an organization. Sit together with a group and share what is important. The Ten Commandments of Dialogue by ELP provide a great rulebook for such a dialogue. And remember, practice makes perfect.
