All the people in the world that make collaboration work; my team.
Every time I visualize a new project to serve the interests of my clients and our shared future, I explore ways to “real-ize” my vision. In business and not for profits, we have great boards of directors. For solo-prenuers, I have always coached my clients to create a personal board of directors to assist them in realizing their dreams (personally and professionally).
Today, as I realign my services and engagements to better serve me and my future and current clients, I am reaching out to the “masters” of Leadership, Creating Shared Value, Coaching, Interest-Based Negotiation, Dispute Resolution and Mindfulness. They all care deeply about business, community, and environment. They yearn to collaborate to create a future that is healthy for all. They will challenge me, encourage me and multiply my presence. They come from my global network with wonderful, diversity of perspectives, expertise,and demographics. They make me work better.
As I do this, I want to thank and celebrate all the people that have got me to this incredible space.
I do this to recognize my teachers, mentors, partners,and collaborators. And I do this to encourage you to do the same.
Who is in your incredible space that have, and will, make your, their, and our shared future far better? Have you thanked them? Are you re-engaging 9 to move you forward now?
Here are many of the great people from my global network that offered their wisdom on collaboration in my work including my 2015/ 2016 podcasts on collaboration; Podcasts
