How to improve the process of working together and develop the habit of everyone working to improve collaborative methods?

Start with understanding why attempts to change the way people work together so often fail. Giving good instructions to a colleague works poorly. Why? Telling others what to do implies they have lower status, or may be heard as an accusation. Concerned with that, people may reject the substance of your message.

Another big mistake is not explaining people why they should change. Resistance to change is a natural act. People resist if they have no idea why a change will be an improvement.


Native American proverbs

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Walk beside me that we may be as one.

Abraham Linkoln

If you would win a man to your cause,
first convince him that
you are his sincere friend.

Vadim Kotelnikov

Giving is getting.
If you want to grow as a leader,
help people grow and shine
