The Rare Art of Collaboration

Collaborating in the work environment is rare and priceless. So few of us communicate openly, share ideas, ask for help and team-up. The very best performers collaborate all day long and would feel lost without it.

On the other hand, weaker performers don't want to collaborate. They are independent, they have to be hunted down and stalked in order to find out what is going on. They keep everything on a "need to know" basis for fear of being criticized or exposed. By rejecting the idea of collaborating, they make their lives harder, their ideas are less innovative, and they make needless mistakes...all because they want to go it alone.

When you collaborate the equation is 1 + 1 = 3.
Go it alone and it's 1 + 0 = 0
