Power through Collaboration


Power through Collaboration


Collaboration is much sought after — for the allure of its power.

In a complex, interrelated, and connected world, Power through Collaboration is the most effective force for achieving your goals. It is the rocket fuel that propels outstanding performance and accomplishment. It optimizes your capability to achieve crucial goals in high stakes situations.

Much to their dismay, many find collaboration’s evident power difficult to capitalize upon. The Power through Collaboration books evolved from my client's requests for guidance about how to collaborate in their very challenging situations — feeling surrounded by non-collaborative people and organizations, yet collaboration being pivotal to determining their success versus failure. Being confronted by grave business and personal consequences made finding a way to collaborate to whatever extent feasible imperative!

When so much is at stake, people understandably feel frustrated should they find collaboration “confusing,” “hard to do,” and “complicated.” Yet, trying to get by without collaboration does not work. Sliding by on the minimum cooperation possible looks easier to do, but is not easier to live with. The usual means of getting agreement and cooperating is messy, stressful, unproductive, and perpetuates the conflict treadmill. The advantages of collaboration are lost, while all the usual strife, stress, and subpar results remain.

Sooner or later people grasp that Power through Collaboration cannot be harnessed by doing business as usual. It cannot be captured with standard business models and strategic frameworks. It cannot be simulated by typical self-serving cooperative relationships. It cannot be cajoled with profusions of sanguine advice and quick tips. It cannot be prescribed via archaic rules and outmoded playbooks. It cannot be enacted via modern day collaboration technologies. It cannot even be understood with the conventional mindset.

A fresh framework is needed. If you also are dealing with serious stakes and challenges, you need more than a book of platitudes or proverbial tips that gloss over problematic people and ruthless reality. Superficial guides may not fit your situation; are wrong as often as they are right; offer contradictory advice; and falter in complex situations when you most need help. For guidance to be useful, it is best applied within a coherent framework.

The Power through Collaboration books offer you that coherent framework:

  • Game-changing insight into the psychological foundation that underpins and enables all successful collaboration.
  • Transformational understanding of what collaboration really is, and is not.
  • Decisive capability to use the Power through Collaboration Formula and 7-step methodology to master collaboration challenges and solutions.
