  1. Teach your people to collaborate for competitive advantage
  2. Learning the skillset for teamwork
  3. Teaching skills for cooperation being the leader


TEACH YOUR PEOPLE TO WORK TOGETHER. Collaboration, teamwork is of strategical importance. As Patrick Lencioni said, "Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare." Maybe read this twice before continuing.

A very important role for you as a manager is the cultivation of collaboration. A lot of people know this is true already, but it still is difficult to make teamwork an asset. You have to teach people the behavior that is mandatory for collaboration.
Obviously living the behavior yourself helps to do so, but having your people learning the skills is also necessary. Maybe truer for the one than the other, but still, it is an underrated topic.

Why do we emphasize this issue? Well, that is because if something is not going well in the organization, people always tend to say immediately that this is due to two things 1) communication and 2) cooperation. And of course, this is in general almost always true and these issues are closely related. So, what can you do to energize collaboration in your organization?
