We’ve talked about collaboration in past, and yet there is one aspect of collaboration that deserves a deeper dive. In this episode, Nancy and Sarah talk about collaborations and how organizations can pro-actively address culture and cultural differences within them. They share a few steps for success. You will finish listening with ideas on how you might strengthen the collaborations that you are in or working towards.
Question to reflect on before you listen:
Think about a collaboration you are in. How is it going?
- What resonated with you about this conversation? What would you like to take back to your organization?
- We called this episode “The art of collaboration.” Why art? What does that work mean to you as you think about how you work with others?
- Which of the four ideas would help your collaborations the most: Know thyself, Name the tension, Create a structure, or Build trust?
