Harvey A. Robbins started us off at the first main conference day with three ways to develop a collaborative culture:
1. Select members of your team who have a natural tendency towards sharing information without the expectation of reciprocity
2. Teamwork and establishing clear expectations: Setting up goals, dividing up roles & holding people accountable
3. Manipulation: Use knowledge of personalities to build a team that works together
- "Drivers" - outcome driven, process oriented, feedback rich. Good to delegate to and task oriented. Want to hear the 'what?"
- "Expressives" - Creative, good for new product development. Want to hear the "why?"
- "Analyticals" - Will keep you from making mistakes by tracking information and details. Want to know the "How?"
- "Amiables" - People and friendship related, collaboration and communication focused. Want to know the "who?"
