The Importance of Collaborative Work

Two minds are better than one

Collaborative leadership is always something I have found extreme  value in and have implemented in every aspect of The Anthem Group. I  am honored to be accepting the Leading the Way award this week at the  UMass Center of Collaborative Leadership luncheon and to be recognized  for my leadership within my community—the Greater Boston area.

A person can have tremendous ideas on their own but working with  others often leads to more creativity and higher levels of success.  While everyone is limited to their own singular perspective, collaborating with a team helps open up new creative channels.  Together a team can expand on a good concept and push it beyond what  an individual could on their own. The end result is a great and  impactful idea that can turn into something more tangible, a product,  an event, a design, etc.

Too often, people make the mistake of only working with others when  they need help. While this is a good strategy, it is one that should  be implemented more frequently. Not taking advantage of those around  you to help expand on even the greatest ideas is a waste of potential. With the help of others, scalable ideas can turn into something bigger  than ever imaginable.

Anthem itself is exemplary of the value that collaborative work adds to a company. Anthem would not be where it is today if it weren’t for the assistance of my team and all their hard work. Every opinion is heard and valued, and my staff is constantly working together to generate robust ideas. The outcomes of collaborative work are endless, and I am honored to be receiving an award by a prestigious academic program that not only sees the value in such work but teaches it to others. I am excited to see where future collaboration will take The Anthem Group.
