Our approach leverages the Science of Collaboration to raise the collaboration capabilities of those teams/individuals involved with critical cross-functional business goals.

Business results are achieved more collaboratively with better execution, more creativity, faster and with less energy.

It is important that the teams working towards the imperative business objectives have a high level of ability to collaborate to ensure that the results are delivered.

In our process, it is important that the executive’s ability to collaborate within the context of a team or department is addressed with an important business objective defined as a shared goal.

We utilize a seven-step collaboration process, which assists an intact teamwork toward a specific shared goal as a team creating a collaborative environment to achieve the best result.

Throughout this seven step process, each team member works toward uncovering the unseen engine of beliefs, attitudes, behaviors and skills in the context of the team’s shared goal.  The increased overall emotional intelligence/relational capability of the individuals creates a highly collaborative environment.

This is our seven step collaboration process:
