Core4 Principles: Collaboration

Team members want to be part of a high-functioning team.

Strong relationships build a sense of belonging within an organization. A team that works together can harness the power and creativity of collaboration.

Focus: Effective teams have well-run meetings with full participation. They productively discuss and disagree, resulting in clearer roles and responsibilities and strong alignment among team members. Teams focus on proactively planning for the future they want to achieve.

Ask Yourself:

  • How many new, workable solutions surface in team meetings?
  • What percentage of our meetings are productive?
  • How skilled are my team leaders at directing team meetings?


  • Fully-engaged teams that can work together to achieve company goals.
  • Methods for managing differences, building trust, and extending teamwork.
  • Skills, practice, and coaching on leading a team and running effective meetings.
