Cluster 1 - Working Collaboratively

Leadership and Effective collaboration
What Skills Enhance Teamwork?
Some people collaborate better than others. It’s not just about their ego; it’s also about specific skills they developed through practice. When you’re trying to hire the perfect workers for a team or you’re trying to train your current ones, these are the skills you should focus on:
Ability to Compromise
You should encourage everyone to share their ideas, but you must explain that not every battle has to be fought. They should simply offer their point of view and listen to what the other team members have. Then, they can join forces towards finding a compromise.
Communication Skills
You cannot let the workers limit their efforts to their part of the job. They should be able to express themselves clearly and connect with the rest of the team so they can talk about the project. Communication is the essential element of effective collaboration.
Tolerance
When creating a team, you’re grouping individuals together. When their egos clash, you come down to a tricky situation: the differences prevail over their will to find solutions. It’s vital for everyone to practice tolerance towards each other. You can encourage tolerance through motivational speeches, as well as through direct feedback and recommendations.
Technical Skills
It’s simple: if you want your workers to collaborate through digital tools, you have to make sure they have the technical skills needed for that. Fortunately, all these tools are easy to use so there won’t be much training involved. Still, you have to provide instructions and support the employees towards the process of mastering these tools.
AND Collaboration is a purposeful relationship in which all parties strategically choose to cooperate to accomplish a shared outcome
