The Collaboration Engine
We are convinced that the only way we are going to enjoy the just, thriving, and regenerative world we all want to see is through effective and elegant collaboration.
In fact, open-hearted and concretely impactful collaborations offer us perhaps the most contemporary way to truly experience interdependence, interbeing, and even interbecoming.
Yet few things are harder, for most of us, than authentic collaboration. We may like to think we are ripe and ready for powerful collaborations—whether more towards co-operation or more towards co-creation—but often our “protective patterns” unconsciously get in the way. More practical matters can also become major blockers for great collaboration.
After many years of guiding, coaching, and training people to collaborate and be collaborative leaders, we have developed a toolkit for collaboration. One element of it is The Collaboration Engine.
Below we share an abridged version with you as a gift: to help you develop powerful collaborations to increase the regeneration of our world for the common good.
Fill out the survey – and ask your fellow collaborators to do so too. You will be emailed all of your responses. You can then use these as prompts to: 1) develop your own collaborative leadership development plan; 2) preempt collaborative meltdowns and impasses through to facilitate conscious and wise conversations and 3) contract and agree concrete collaborations designed to work with, not against, the motivators, relational “imprints”, and needs each collaborator has.
Together everything is possible. Let’s thrive through diversity in unity.
