Collaboration Across Borders
Collaboration is a social activity which requires superior performance as a team. However, the often placed over-emphasis on shared goals takes away from the point that most teams in organisations who need to collaborate effectively don’t need to gather around and work towards a common goal. More often than not, they need to quickly and creatively respond to challenging or complex problems.
Research has shown that over the last 20 years the time spent by managers and employees in collaboration activities has doubled, yet organisations still frequently underestimate the challenges that can arise in adopting collaboration as a mechanism to get the best from their employees.
In international organisations, where culture, distance and methodologies can damage communication, having the necessary tools and skills to collaborate can be a game changer and allow for teams to work more efficiently across borders, whether these are social, cultural or political.

- Explore current thinking and common misconceptions about leadership
