Why is collaborative working important?
Collaboration is a critical component of the effective worker in today’s fast-paced business environment. Employees are expected to be able to adapt to situations where they have to work well with others outside their usual team in order to achieve combined goals. This means communicating effectively, developing trust, building relationships, leading with influence and being able to work fluidly across boundaries.
With the key knowledge and skills related to collaboration; leaders will become an integral part of their organisation. Collaboration skills are not a ‘nice to have’; they are absolutely integral to the success of today’s leaders.
Working together is a key element of business today and more and more people are being asked to collaborate. This isn’t only happening within teams, but also with other departments, outside suppliers, unions and even other organisations.
When carried out effectively, collaboration succeeds in solving problems by focusing on shared values and so means the solutions are longer lasting. Conventional decision-making can bring about change through new rules and policies, but only collaboration can truly shift peoples’ underlying attitudes.
Collaboration allows participants to learn from one another and work toward a deeper understanding of important issues and constraints. Problem-solving power is shared in a collaborative process, and this often translates into a sense of shared responsibility for the issue/s.
