Collaboration: Not just a fancy word for working together
September 15, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Collaboration. Collaboration in the workplace is not just marketing-ese for team-enabling technology and social tools. Nor is it synonymous with popularity contests, like picking sides for summer camp teams. Done right and embedded into work life, collaboration can benefit your organization’s learning, performance and talent development. Are you there yet? The experts speak. Sarah Miller Caldicott, The Power Patterns of Innovation: “Many leaders believe collaboration and teamwork are the same thing. But they are actually different, and need to be nurtured in different ways. Without collaboration, innovation stalls.” Kevin Bennet, Mayo Clinic: “With collaboration, miracles do occur.” Mark Brandau, SAP: “Dirt used to be a badge of honor. Dirt used to look like work. But we've scrubbed the dirt off the face of work, and consequently we've created this suspicion of anything that's too dirty.” (Mike Rowe) Join us for Collaboration: Not a just fancy word for working together.
