Collaboration is part of your Social Skills - a component of your Social Competence.
While Social Skills, in general, is related to your adeptness at inducing desirable responses in others - Collaboration relates to your ability to work with others towards shared goals.
People who have this competence usually:
- Balance a focus on task with attention to relationships.
- Collaborate with others sharing plans, information, and resources.
- Promote a friendly and cooperative climate.
- Spot and nurture opportunities for collaboration.
Business is not only about efficiency; it is also about relationships, getting along, sharing, and creating bonds between co-workers and everybody involved from top to bottom. The group who does not share this emotional bond is more likely to become paralyzed, dysfunctional or even to disintegrate under pressure.
