Collaboration creates high performing teams and organizations-and with today's diverse, globalized workforce it's absolutely crucial. Yet it often doesn't happen because people and groups typically believe that the problem is always outside. Bestselling author Ken Blanchard and his coauthors use Blanchard's signature business parable style to show that, in fact, if collaboration is to succeed it must begin withyou. This book teaches people at all levels-from new associates to top executives-that it's up to each of us to help promote and preserve a winning culture of collaboration. Working a three-part approach, Collaboration Begins with Youhelps readers develop a collaborative culture that uses differences to spur contribution and creativity and turns everyone into an empowered self-leader.
