One of the most pronounced changes that can be made to develop a Collaborative Workplace is a shift in the way employees, teams and projects are managed on a day-to-day basis.
Building individual connections within the team fosters constructive, self-sufficient, and interdependent work. Direct communication cuts delays and strengthens relationships, leading to better collaboration, respect, and enjoyment at work.
Once co-workers form independent relationships, they connect these micro-collaborations to create a circular communication wheel. Commitment to team goals drives momentum and transforms the manager’s role from control to encouragement.
The Collaborative Wheel gains momentum as the manager adopts a shared leadership style, empowering experts and facilitating conflict resolution. Increased productivity and morale result in a thriving Collaborative Culture.
