Collaborate as If Your Life Depends on It
When collaboration is absent—be it in business, sports, or relationships—success is likely to be absent, too. If you’ve been on a team where members favored a “me first” attitude or a “go-it-alone” approach, it was very likely a frustrating experience.
In business, the issue is simple: we aren’t trained on how to collaborate. If we are, it’s limited to team-building exercises, and this doesn’t create lasting change.
Doug Crawley has learned how to collaborate in every area of his life: sports, business, ministry, and especially in the military, where his life literally depended on it!
In this book, Doug shares stories from his life that illustrate the Five C’s of collaboration: commitment, clarity, confidence, caution, and courage. You’ll learn from his triumphs and his failures what it takes to begin working with others toward shared success.
Collaborate as If Your Life Depends on It is your ticket to increased productivity, faster problem-solving, enhanced innovation, better customer experiences—and most important of all—vastly improved relationships in business and in life.
