High-performance organizations are abuzz with collaboration, and for good reason: Collaboration is highly correlated with market performance (this includes market share, revenue growth, profitability, and customer satisfaction) and it’s also one of five shared values that distinguish organizations that are highly effective at anticipating, adapting, and acting on change.
What We’ve Found:
The findings of i4cp’s research on collaboration – conducted in partnership with Professor Rob Cross of Babson College – are clear. The difference between productive and healthy collaboration, and unproductive and unhealthy collaboration can be summed up in how purposeful (i.e. intentional) an organization pursues it.
In his presentation, i4cp chief research officer Kevin Martin will share how organizations that have cultures that enable and support purposeful collaboration do so via the alignment of three key elements—all of which are clearly linked to higher market performance—and work in unison to shape and move the culture: leadership, work management, and talent practices. Each of these three elements, and more, are reflected in i4cp’s Purposeful Collaboration model; which will be distributed to every person who attends our October 4th session of the Executive Learning Exchange.
