Most of us recognize the critical importance of collaboration in our everyday lives, whether with family, friends, colleagues, or community. Sadly, most of us also have had more bad experiences working with others than good, much less great. Why is this? How can we shift it? What’s the “secret” to high-performance collaboration?
The answer is simple, but not easy: Practice. We can look at other high-performance collaborative fields — from sports to music — to understand how best to structure and support practice that will lead to better collaboration.
These slides are from a keynote I gave at The Collaboratory 5 on March 22, 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.
