“When all three are present, collaboration is
high, when one or more is missing, the level of
collaboration decreases.”

A Helpful Attitude Constitutes:

  • An open mind requires us to be willing to welcome new ideas without cynicism and to see things with fresh eyes;
  • An open heart requires us to avoid being judgmental and to develop an ability to sense from those around us what is required;
  • An open will requires us to conquer our fears, to be willing to risk, to let go of the old, and to let come of the future.

Dialogue:

Dialogue is not only about the physical act of talking, it is about minds and relationships unfolding so that people can find real freedom through collaboration.
