The Collaboration Conversation

Seven Dimensions
Updated Oct 15, 2019

Course Overview

Peter Quarry tells Eve Ash that while collaborative workplaces are highly desirable, developing a culture for collaboration isn’t easy. It requires asking and addressing a series of questions which form the basis for a conversation that negotiates where and how people can work together.

Creating a collaboration culture is not easy. It first requires addressing some key questions about work style, different communication approaches, and negotiating change.

Learning Objectives

Creating a collaboration culture requires asking questions about:

  • What is my work style?
  • How do I like to communicate?
  • What annoys me about how others work and communicate?
  • What would I like you to change about how you work?
  • If our collaboration is not working, how will we deal with this?
