The classical mind is Confrontative. The refined mind is Collaborative.
Not everything you run for in life is necessarily a race. Not every race you run for should necessarily have a winner. Not every winner is necessarily, a solo winner. Learn to run races where all win. Those become the hallmark races of your life.
Collaboration to succeed needs to flow through all the four aspects of the working environment ... the tools used by the team, the mindsets of the people involved, the political compulsions and the culture of the organisation.
Trust, vulnerability and psychological safety makes collaboration difficult in early stages ... however, with time, resilience and sincere efforts, collaboration wins.
