The Collaborator

The Collaborator

The Collaborator is the rare person who truly values the team over the individual. In the interest of getting things done, the Collaborator coaxes people out of their work silos to form multidisciplinary teams.

In doing so, the person in this role dissolves traditional boundaries within organizations and creates opportunities for team members to assume new roles. More of a coach than a boss, the Collaborator instils their team with the confidence and skills needed to complete the shared journey.

makenzie

Urban dweller. Passionate about leadership and management.

The practice of innovating is too valuable a skill to overlook. Businesses that downplay the importance of pushing the boundaries and asking the questions run the risk of becoming stagnant, inflexible, and irrelevant.
