For an individual one of the core skills necessary to survive and thrive in the workplace of today is the ability to collaborate. As someone keenly interested in the performance of groups and teams tasked with achieving breakthrough innovation in their enterprises, I regularly see how a deficiency in this area can have both short term consequences for organization performance and long term consequences for strategic gain. Collaboration is not simply a necessary skill, as The DNA of Collaboration highlights it is one of the preeminent skills vital for organization success.
By providing one of the most thorough and comprehensive models for collaboration within and across teams, Chris Jones reveals the complex systems and processes that are at work when collaborating. He targets the critical ingredients for success: the place of meaning in work, the ability to communicate effectively, and the interplay between various roles necessary for successful collaboration. Along the way, he tackles barriers and impediments to collaborative success and offers clear insights and guidance for those seeking to maximize the effectiveness of their team's performance.
Perhaps the greatest lessons like in the reapplication of fundamental business practices to collaboration: the need for respect, the focus on being trustful and being trustworthy ourselves, and the depth of engagement required to truly listen to the needs of others. Chris offers us collaboration as a choice. A choice we need to make more often as the problems we face within our organizations and around the world increase in complexity.
