A collaborative team works together to co-create something new in line with a shared vision. The first step is to decide how we will work together and capture our ideas in a Team Agreement. This involves negotiation.

We can use some process tools to guide our work together. One example is SUIT - Share, Understand, Integrate, Team Decision. 

In collaborative high performing teams, we have to develop a mindset of shared leadership as opposed to delegation. Effective team meetings contribute to collaboration in numerous ways. Collaboration is an ongoing cycle of learning, reflecting and feedforward. Try this activity in your team.
