I believe that more listening and less talk makes wonders happen. And this comes from an extrovert who had to quiet herself down and learn the beauty of genuine active listening. I also believe that collaboration and creativity are skills that can be practiced and learned. 

 

A big Google research summarized that the most successful teams are not the ones built with specific personality types, talent or backgrounds. It's the teams who work well together that thrive. The "who" doesn't matter as much as how the team members interact with one another. I teach the "how" so the "who" can make great things happen together. 

 

To get the best results in teaching collaboration, communication, and creativity skills, I use applied improvisation as the method.
 

"Leaders trying to create collaborative cultures tend to focus on instilling the right values or designing the right space. They overlook the fact that collaboration requires certain skills."
