If you ask senior leaders what is a critical element of a high performing team and organization, they will frequently say collaboration. Teaming and working together with shared goals, freely sharing information, clarifying accountability, and leveraging each person’s expertise is a vital part of thriving organizations. Yet, collaboration is not always the answer and can sometimes be the wrong choice. More collaboration is not always better! It is important to know when collaboration is really needed and when it should not be used. In this engaging presentation, Daniel J. Stewart, internationally recognized organizational consultant and executive coach, will identify the barriers that prevent us from collaborating in the right way, share a collaboration model for HR professionals, and discuss how to teach others when to collaborate.
