Cooperation to Collaboration

Probably the most meaningful chapter for me In Joseph Myers’ Organic Community was the one on Moving from Cooperation to Collaboration.  Seeking change via cooperation is master planning – one person’s plan impressed upon everyone else.  Seeking change via collaboration is messy, but everyone has buy in when their ideas are heard and their contribution valued. 

Richard Farson in Management of the Absurd, “If you know how to have a romance, it isn’t a romance, but a seduction.  Not knowing how to do it makes it a romance.”
