Something to strive for 2: Engagement
While we each bring different expertise to the table, we are all leaders, or should strive to be. I may not be qualified in your area of expertise and you may not be qualified in mine. This means that we each have a vital role in the collaboration.
You may come to me with an issue that lends itself to my expertise, like back pain. However, my expertise is of little value without your expertise regarding your goals, expectations, and circumstances. For us to collaborate, we need each other’s contributions.
We need engagement.
