A Philly Native’s Perspective on Collaboration
Keywords:collaboration, transparency, authenticity
When I hear about collaboration, some of the first words that come to mind are partnership, honesty, willingness, and purpose. Why? In my experience, we learn to be reactive to situations and not proactive. We aren’t mind readers and can’t determine an individual’s intention when we first meet. Burning bridges, lack of respect, and losing sight of the overall goal are all factors that lead to the opposition when collaboration is mentioned. I’ve done my best to approach collaboration in three ways that have led to my success in building positive partnerships and fostering innovative collaborations.
