Competitive Versus Collaborative – Which Do You Need To Grow Your Business?
I am always curious about what individuals need to work at their best in a group and the decision making process they go through deciding whether to speak or not. What I have come to believe with every fibre in my body is that competitiveness may work for sports and yet for society the only way forward is collaboration. With this thought in mind this video provides some interesting information to support that thinking.
Why it is time to forget the pecking order at work?
What about you? What are your thoughts about competitiveness versus collaboration?
If you get that it makes sense to develop collaborative groups/teams/relationships the question is how?
How do you motivate and manage individuals to be collaborative?
How do you encourage them to be better without competing with each other?
I believe the answer is the way you listen. When you listen and ask questions that honour everyone’s opinion and view point you give the group the opportunity to self organise.
And that can start with you today.
