I believe most folks could check the collaboration ‘admirer‘ box.

An admirer is someone who publicly supports collaboration and will even share that it is high on their organization’s list.

How is being a collaboration ‘model‘ different? It’s rewarding collaboration and training to collaborate effectively.

I read an article on collaboration in organizations recently that included survey results from six countries across a dozen industries. According to the results, 25% of organizations reward collaboration and 18% deliver training opportunities to learn to collaborate effectively. I think this sounds accurate.

Organizations are constantly looking for competitive advantage. What if they decided to reward collaborative behavior like they do for reaching sales goals and deliver training like they do for sharpening technical skills? They would become a collaboration ‘model’ and have an advantage over 75% of their competitors… 

Does this sound accurate?
