02_BP_Collaboration-book_JNBy Michael C. Mack

In his newest book, Collaboration Begins with You: Be a Silo Buster, Ken Blanchard, in collaboration with Jane Ripley and Eunice Parisi-Carew, shows leaders how to empower themselves and build collaboration by empowering a team. “Effective leaders learn early in their careers that they can’t manage whole projects singlehandedly,” says Blanchard on his blog, HowWeLead.org. “They need an empowered team working collaboratively to achieve goals.”

In the book, the writers use the acronym UNITE to describe what it takes to build a collaborative culture:

• Utilize differences

• Nurture safety and trust

• Involve others in crafting a clear purpose, values, and goals

• Talk Openly

• Empower yourself and others.
