The most collaborative element of cooperation between organizations and city agencies should be guided by detail and structure. Organizations that collaborate can have everyone on the same track, working together toward the same goal to assure success. Cooperation builds consensus, teamwork and collaboration.
But, it isn’t just about social, relational thinking and leadership. And, it goes beyond even building consensus. It’s critical for the vision of one organization to be aligned with other organization’s vision to avoid duplication of effort and inefficiency. As organizations grow and morph into servicing more people in the community, visioning and alignment becomes increasingly more difficult. With so many different management teams, boards, and people doing so many different things, Structural Thinking can be what sets leadership and therefore collaboration apart.
Socionics can provide the tools and communication to help boost people and cooperative power through structure, organizing and social media. Instituting a structure that empowers people in diverse organizations and agencies to come together, that facilitates learning and innovation, is going to help organizations and the people they serve in the community thrive.
