Stop, collaborate, and listen

Posted on: February 12, 2019

When I read the tweet below, I recalled a few lyrics from Ice Ice Baby — stop, collaborate, and listen.

We should STOP assuming that cooperation and collaboration are synonymous. John Spencer did a great job of distinguishing the two in 2016.

Cooperation vs collaboration

To COLLABORATE is to engage in debate, work towards long term goals, and combine talents to create a product and/or process that no single person could on their own. Collaboration is unlikely to happen in 10 minutes of forced partnership.

We should LISTEN to the voices that challenge our assumptions. They might say things that are simple, profound, or simply profound.
