How are we collaborating?

The word Collaboration, meaning “working together, or united labour” comes from Latin derivation; collaborare, later changed to collaboratio, then in the mid 19th century changed to collaboration.

It is a term often used, a way of being often sought-after, yet, in my experience, rarely unpacked to determine what it may look like at various levels, the core elements that underpin collaboration, or how to move from one level to the next.

So let’s have a closer look at unpacking the different stages of collaboration and the core elements that underpin it.

Calling upon Parten’s (1932) theories of play as a framework, the graphic below provides a pathway towards collaboration. 

Underpinning collaboration is Relational Trust. This includes qualities such as integrity, self-awareness, competency, respect, inclusiveness, empathy and straightforwardness.

In developing collaborative practises, we must also develop ourselves.

Middle Leader Coaching and Mentoring

Are you a leader of an organisation or school who is intent on growing your middle leaders, but not quite sure how?

Are you spending time mentoring and coaching them on-the-hop and feel you could be supporting them better?

Maybe with the best of intent, you place them on a one-day course, but these are like a drop in the ocean; they provide some tools, but once back in the face of work, their use can fall-over. This leaves them feeling frustrated and confused, and can sometimes make an even bigger problem for you to deal with, and will eat into your already precious time.
