When we speak of cooperating or collaborating, the majority of people, businesses, community organisations revel at the thought; so why is there such a gap between what we say we want and what we actually do ?
It is easy to cast aspersions, simple to blame, oppose, reject or avoid, yet reality remains consistent, the statistics demonstrate that cooperation occurs irregularly and where the desired outcomes, aka KPI's, do not reflect, then blame is quick.
Cooperation is sincerity. Sincerity has a desire from a measured benchmark to a measured result with constant communication and consideration aka 'inclusion'.
Why are there so many charities
Why do communities fail to work together
Why do businesses fail to support the staff they employed
Why do relationships fail to move forward
Is it that ‘threat mentality’ kicks in ? Perhaps
Is it that people are insignificant ? Not likely
Is it that working with another person means compromising and learning something new ? Probably
So what is so terrible about learning something new…?
Think of all the missed opportunities, the closed businesses because leveraging knowledge and experience was ignored, rejected or deflected
The reality is when we fall into the trap of the (assumed’) fear of not being good enough’ or ‘fear of being found out’, then we immediately fall behind, work harder not smarter, devalue opportunity and lose focus on purpose.
What is the purpose of a charity, business, community, relationship ? Surely it is to add value to people ?
Or is it to add attention to ones self ?
Cooperation provides humility, curiosity, leadership, opportunity and growth
Growth can only lead to success
A business does not need to take on everyone, that is a broad generalisation
A business can receive, connect or not and leverage real experience, that is opportunism
So how do we cooperate at home, work, in our community ?
What do we step forward and offer sincerely versus expectingly ?
Flick the Switch Coaching operates from sincerity. We give more than we receive.
Why ? Because we can. Because in the face of adversity, giving is the example we live by
No pretence, pure Cooperation
How is it now ?
How would you like it to be ?
If it matters to You : it matters to Me
