Everyone knows that collaboration creates high-performing teams and organizations. Yet it often doesn't happen, because people and groups typically believe that they are doing what's needed the problem is always outside: the other team member, the other department. So people stay in their silos and the creative energy collaboration generates is lost. This book shows that collaboration begins with you. It is an inside-out process that starts with your heart (who you are) and head (what you know and believe), then moves to your hands (what you do). The authors help people develop a collaborative culture by utilizing differences, nurturing safety and trust, instituting clear purposes and goals, talking openly, and empowering themselves and others. When people recognize and change erroneous beliefs and actions regarding collaboration, failures can be turned into successes and breakthrough results achieved at every level.
