In Part 2 of our "collaboration" series, agile42 coach Mariet Visser, provides her take on the new collaborative environment we're finding ourselves in. Collaboration is a skill we constantly need to work at and is something which evolves over time. As our context and the people with whom we work shifts, so does how we collaborate. Collaboration heavily relies on trust and our ability to be open & honest with one another; something that can be much more difficult to achieve in a virtual setting.
Regina Martins, kicks off the first of a 2 part series on "collaboration". She believes collaboration isn't just a learned skill, instead it requires an intimate knowledge of our own defensive behaviours. By being self-aware we can recognise when our behaviour is creating blockers to forming collaborative relationships. She will be tapping into 50 of these defensive behaviours in her webinar later this month.
In this webinar I delved into the importance of collaboration in building a great team, whilst taking the viewer through the 5 essential skills for building strong collaborative relationships.
