Collaboration: The Critical Ingredient for Success
Increasingly, individuals across business, government and civic sectors are finding that the complex challenges they face cannot be solved in isolation, but instead require coming together in new ways to achieve desired outcomes. Whether a community is grappling with a long-standing conflict or wants to create a vision for moving forward, collaboration is the critical ingredient for success.
The concept of collaboration is certainly not new, and those working across traditional boundaries recognize its importance. But knowing collaboration is important is one thing, and knowing how to bring together the processes, resources and skills to form effective collaborations is quite another.
At Civic Collaboration, we help clients work with diverse stakeholders to establish common ground for action. We address the challenging issues critical to success - correctly defining the problem, involving the right stakeholders in the right process, addressing disparity of power, improving the quality of relationships, reaching final decisions, and more.
Collaboration is not easy, but the growing trend away from top-down power structures toward new ways of aligning activities and decisions makes collaboration a core competency for individuals, organizations and communities.
