What is your Organisation's Collaborative Culture?

A former senior administrative law judge, with over 40 years of experience in conflict resolution, an expert in building collaborative relationships and a personal mentor and friend, Jim Tamm has supported and guided individuals and organisations in creating a collaborative culture.

In his book ‘’Radical Collaboration’’ Jim speaks of three zones workplaces find themselves in, the Red Zone, Pink Zone or Green Zone.

The RED ZONE is a more adversarial, conflicted and hostile environment. The PINK ZONE is a more conflict avoidant, passive aggressive environment. With the GREEN ZONE being a more collaborative, and supportive environment. An Organisation is rarely seen in the Red Zone, Pink Zone or Green Zone; most are a unique combination of all three to a varying degree. Check out the image below and see if you can identify the collaborative culture in your workplace.

"You can't compete externally, if you can't first collaborate internally"

Building a collaborative culture is essential for fostering innovation, productivity, and employee engagement.

Creating a collaborative culture begins with a shared vision and a commitment to open communication. Leaders play a pivotal role by setting the tone and modelling collaborative behaviours. Teamwork is encouraged by establishing clear goals, providing opportunities for cross-functional collaboration, and fostering an environment where diverse perspectives are valued.

When we can celebrate successes and learn from failures as a team, we foster a culture of continuous improvement. By prioritising collaboration, we unlock the full potential of our teams and drive collective success.
