Moving from individual to collaborative efforts

I continue to not be surprised by people who are not accustomed to collaboration. They are individualists, because they don't know how to collaborate or don't like to share control and credit. 

One first step is inviting them to think together. This takes skillful facilitation of conversations beyond the limits of their comfort. We have to invite shared critique of options, shared identification of unknowns, shared clarity about what success could and should look like.
