“In the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.”


~Charles Darwin


Interesting to read Darwin talk about one of today’s hot leadership topics:  collaboration to drive innovation.  In the “survival of the fittest” sweepstakes, it has always been true that those who are able to effectively change and adapt have not only survived, they have thrived.  And interestingly, this happens most easily when collaboration takes place.  Yes, “two heads (or 3 or 4) are better than one” and if you can drive a collaborative culture in your organization, your chances of success multiply exponentially as you take advantage of the collective wisdom of the group.
