Building World-Changing Collaborations that Succeed
When we reach beyond our own professional networks to collaborate, those new relationships can make us more powerful. Stronger Together shows how reaching outside internal teams and enlisting the help of other organizations, even your competitors—–something author Nicole Mahoney refers to as co-opetition—–can dramatically improve results.
Research has proven that organizations that collaborate benefit from fresh, innovative ideas, improved brand reputation, operational efficiencies, and increased trust. The proprietary framework and strategies outlined in Stronger Together, developed through Mahoney’s own research and case studies, will help expand your knowledge about collaboration, will make you a better collaborator, and will teach you how to seek out and organize collaborations that will lead to business success. By being more strategic with how you approach collaboration along with understanding how to be a great partner, more opportunities will come your way. The bottom-line: it will lead to increased revenue and could change the world, or at least your corner of it.
