COLLABORATION - THINK BEFORE YOU ASK
Things to consider before asking someone to “collaborate” with you:
• is it a mutually beneficial exercise ?
• is it a balanced opportunity ?
• are all parties’ values aligned ?
• is this their profession / offering something that other businesses are paying them to do ?
We are in the age of collaboration. It’s a wonderful thing to connect with like minded individuals and entities to join forces on a project. We feel it necessary to address the importance of balance as far as collaboration is concerned.
When approaching someone to collaborate; consider the above questions at length before asking or “inviting” them to your idea.
