In my coaching practice, I think that I spend more than 50% of the time working with managers on some aspect of their collaboration with others. Situations that, for some reason, are dysfunctional or even, at times, toxic.
For the person involved, it is often a ‘big thing ‘ that takes up much bandwidth, and at the end of the day, it can’t help but affect their output negatively.
The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our results.
But for some funny reason, we rarely pay much attention to developing collaborative skills – When things are difficult, it is obviously because someone else is [ ] put in whatever applies ( Stupid, incompetent, tone-deaf)
Collaboration is a learned skill, and it is really not that hard. And surprisingly its not so much about the others… it’s all about us
Not since kindergarten days did you get a report card that scored you for “Plays well with others” or not…
