|New from||Used from|
1) "Stephen Willis's trail-blazing book guides us along a path to the type of collaboration that can pull us back from the precipice - something that is needed as never before!"
New York Times bestselling author of Confessions of an Economic Hitman, Hoodwinked, and Shapeshifting.
2) "Dr. Willis is absolutely correct that people cannot possibly collaborate if they don't even know what collaboration means. Before explaining what collaboration is, Dr. Willis describes 12 things that people frequently confuse as collaboration. .... I must tell you that just learning what collaboration is not was extremely eye opening."
"This book is extremely thought provoking. .... I cannot thank stephen Willis, Ph.D. enough for writing this book."
Mark Baer Esq.
3) "Stephen Willis's book is jam-packed with useful information and tools to succeed at making collaboration work. It is a real workhorse of a book - not the usual fluff and puff - and serves incredibly well with complex, tough situations."
San Francisco Zoo
4) "Power through Collaboration is a very powerful window to the benefits of Collaboration and its success - well spelled out. Win-Win formula!"
Journal of Institute of Management Technology
5) "Dr. Willis captures the essence of the collaborative process: people. ... clearly defines collaboration ... masterfully details the conflict between self-interest and caring for others with illustrations from current history."
"The concept of "Power through Collaboration" is illustrated with real life examples. ... This is a book that every practice group could read together to build skill and understanding of how to implement the collaborative process."
Gloria Vanderhorst Ph.D.
The World of Collaborative Practice Magazine

This review is from: Power through Collaboration (kindle)
I was captivated by the book and the examples of collaboration the author provides. An intellectual endeavor which seeks positive ways for people, companies and organizations to work together in decision making and dispute resolution.The book provides accessible and useful information that can be used for collaboration. I believe there is value in the formula Mr. Willis proposes, however, remain skeptical about employing categories and labels to deal with human issues. Mr. Willis provides gems of wisdom in his discussion of the six collaboration essentials and the motivations for cooperation ( I would extend this to collaboration). A highlight of Power Through Collaboration is that it encourages communication between people when making decisions and dealing with issues. The book is a page turner that can reach a world that requires collaboration.
Cooperation creates that elusive thing called synergy that makes it possible for 2 and 2 to become 5, and is so highly sought after in mergers, acquisitions and takeovers; it is the basis of payments over the replacement value of the property, plant and equipment. But networks have something else working for them - far over and above the synergy - that almost makes 2 and 2 into 22. What is it? I called it synchronicity and it is based on Collaboration.
