Sustaining the Journey

Interdependence (February 2017)

Authored By:

Thinking Collaborative


February 20, 2017

As you consider interdependence, notice key features of this state of mind. What words come to mind? Some might be reciprocity, mutuality, collaboration, shared values, common goals, interaction, etc. As you consider strategies for this state of mind, one is to invite collaboration. Some examples of this are:

• How might others support you in this work?

• What are some common goals you share?

• When you work best together, what is happening?

Questions from the Q Storming:

 What might our legacy be to accomplish this goal?

 What might be some collaborative needs in order to accomplish this goal?

 How might we best handle conflict during this process?

 What collective boundaries will support us in reaching our goal?

 What are the gifts we have to share with the world?

This week, look for opportunities to enhance collaboration. Be attentive to things that might be blocking collaboration. As a mediator of thinking, consider ways your work might invite collaboration.
