Who are you? One. I was raised to do one thing. But I have nothing to fight for. Today the force awakens… not in a universe far, far away…. Around this planet… with people like you… we move from command and control leadership (is that Darth Vader?) to collaborative leadership. Luke, we are your father! We have everything to fight for. I have my life sabre charged and ready. Let’s move forward! This Show Theme is Design the Collaboration which is the 5th of my 10 Essential Steps to Collaboration. This show features three respected collaborative leaders Richard Schultz, Laura Hummelle, and Colin Campbell. Key Messages 1) In a true co-creative space, we are enriched individually and collectively, 2) Where firms used to employ a sales team years ago, we now work collaboratively with our clients, customers, employees and communities. 3) By learning more about the necessary pre-conditions and best practices of collaborative leadership, you will become a more successful.
