These are the much-desired keys to organizational success. Why, then, are they so absent? High Performance Collaboration explains both why these organizational virtues are so rare and how to generate and sustain agility, innovation and speed. It all depends on how we lead and manage collaboration. Todays customers expect organizations to deliver valuable and constantly improved products and services at breakneck speed. To deliver beyond such expectations, companies must effectively collaborate throughout their value chain, from customers all the way back to senior executives. We are making enormous technological investments to meet this challenge- is that enough? No. If we do not respect the natural laws of human collaboration our technology investments will not fulfill their promise. High Performance Collaboration is based on 25 years of work on communication and collaboration. These laws are based on our experiences in acquisitions, mergers, cross-functional communication, hostage negotiations and arms negotiations. They are the lessons we have learned from working with over 200,000 people in 400 organizations in 15 countries. These practical laws are based in the nature of physics and human biology and work across cultural boundaries. If you listen to the 10 laws, you will gain insight into collaboration and its source. This recording is critical for anyone who influences or wishes to influence collaborative action.
