The Essential Requirements Of Cooperation and Collaboration


Cooperation And Collaboration Is A Gift

Cooperation and Collaboration comes congenitally with Humans. We are born candidates designed to work together. You can do one thing, I can do another, someone else, something else.

Nature Is An Indispensable Ally To Have On Our Side. She Holds The Answer To Every Inquiry We Can Make

We have proven beyond all doubt that we all need each other. The proof is the Society we caused to exist. And now live in.

A society crying for fearless and innovative behavioral refinement.

Sharing is the most effective way to refine things. When we accept this premise, our single enemy is evil.

In common with many animals we Humans possess the capability to Cooperate and Create.

Other animals, as far as one can tell, cooperate and create merely to survive. This they do with cool, consummate skill.

Humans, on the other hand, can cooperate and create not only to survive, but to dramatically improve and enhance their quality of life and standard of living.

This Priceless Gift from Nature, in which we all Share, but we execute in our own way, is what sets us apart from all other creatures. To whom otherwise, we are, genetically, closely related.


Exploiting Our Gifts

Each of us has one or more talents that can be exploited. Either as an individual or as part of a team.

To facilitate the exploitation of this awe-inspiring gift of Creativity, Humans, via our expanded Cerebral cortex, have access to principles provided by Nature for just that purpose. Nature is an indispensable ally to have on our side.

She holds the answer to every inquiry we can make.

We witness outstanding examples of these principles, but we tend not to be consistent in our application of them. Instead, we allow ourselves to get caught up in disagreement and discord.


Hallmark

Overcoming disagreement and discord is the key to higher reaches of creativity and Human progress. And is the hallmark of one on the path of Personal Development. 

Personal development is the agency that allows us to expand our Mind and lose ourself by finding ourself.

Taking charge of our ego allows the genuine self to shine through. Harmony prevails.

Collaboration is seen in it's true glory, a creation mechanism extraordinaire.

A mechanism that works inexorably. Serving us unfailingly when given the appropriate environment.

Just as the Elements, the building blocks that compose the Cosmos require specific conditions for their unfailing production, so too, do creative efforts.


Harmony Paramount

Whether a collaborative undertaking is simple or complex, establishing and maintaining Harmony is paramount to achieving the end goal.

The Whole Purpose Of Collaboration Is To Work Together In Harmony, To Create Synergy

Recognizing and observing the cardinal right of any Individual to Autonomy and Self Reliance, is the primary step in forming a collaborative undertaking.

In a complex undertaking, establishing a platform of freedom to work on and create within, is essential.

This platform underpins a system that provides complete support. Including morale, financial support, and material resources.

Overseen by a trusting hierarchy who understand that interference with the functioning of a collaborative group is counter productive.

These initial stages of cultivating this harmonious group is akin to raising a delicate seedling, tentatively emerging from the soil, seeking the warmth of the Sunlight that will nurture and sustain it to healthy maturity.

 An Enlightened Hierarchy, who trust their Team, and themselves, implicitly, from a viewpoint of knowledge and understanding of these essential conditions, is every bit a part of successful Collaboration as Creative Input.


Personal Responsibility

It is necessary to cooperate in order to collaborate. Comprehending this necessity brings into sharp focus the role personal responsibility plays in such an alliance.

Willing People Are Always A Joy To Work With, No Matter The Activity

Every participant must be aware of and respect the healthy predilections of all the other members of a Collaborative Group.

Exercised in a Good sense.

Personal Responsibly will ensure wrong behavior is nipped in the bud before it affects the Group Harmony required for Creative Progress.

 When individuals practice the Laws of Personal Development, until these Laws become habit, harmony is guaranteed.

Willing people are always a joy to work with. No matter what the activity.

Willingness promotes a salutary climate. Liberating energy for creative pursuit that would otherwise be dissipated in useless, counter productive, often destructive, squabbling and bickering.

This enhanced sense of responsibility is as essential to effective cooperation and collaboration as is the cardinal right to autonomy and self reliance.


The Show goes On

An individual embarking on a Collaborative Endeavor should be prepared to understand, and be capable of understanding, given and dynamic - in the sense of changing - situations, to be able to create harmoniously with other like minds.

The Wright Brothers exemplify the inexorable dominion Collaboration offers when faced with the generally conceived "impossible".

A Collaborative Group can be considered a microcosm in the likeness of De Chardin's Omega Point, wherein multiple independent individuals form a Composite Whole.

In being such, this Whole is capable of achieving results an Individual could never hope to do. At least not without many lifetimes as a super polymath.

The Principles of Cooperation and Collaboration have proven Beyond Doubt to be integral Powers in both the progress of Human relationships and the mastering of technology.
