As a child, I celebrated May Day sitting in a grassy field making daisy chains with my besties. We put our skills together to make daisy bracelets, headbands, and anklets! What fond memories as we laughed the afternoon away!
This month I celebrate collaboration and all that it means. In other words, what are the ways that people work together and align themselves? How do teams work together and in unison? What is the driving force?
Now, I smile fondly and consider how I use that same eagerness and collaborate with besties and others. It seems simple…and it is!
Collaboration is an opportunity to work with others, leverage resources, and align perspectives. By doing so, we can think beyond the confines of our projects, organizations, and endeavors. Once we do that we can consider unparalleled opportunities to gain a new perspective.
