The Art of Collaboration

As much as we might sometimes wish we could do everything on our own, there is value in collaboration with others. With the pressure we put on ourselves along with the hustle that is expected within today’s workforce, learning to seek help from others can be beneficial. This does not mean you are delegating all of your work to someone else; rather, you are forming a partnership, either temporary or long-term, with someone to work toward a common goal.


Collaboration can occur among team members, departments, or even between different companies. There are no limits to who you can work with, so long as you are accomplishing what you set out to do. Not only can this aid in the productivity of your people, but it can also help with their individual development. There is much to be learned from others, and collaboration allows for the exchange of knowledge and perspectives. Someone else might see the solution in a different light than you, but it does not make either of you right or wrong. If the goal is to reach the best possible outcome, then you want to consider all of your options. 


The art of collaboration is valuable for the workplace. It teaches important interpersonal skills, encourages teamwork, and creates a sense of community. To collaborate is to produce an intellectual collective of ideas. How can you alleviate some of your stress by collaborating with someone?
