Podcast Show Notes
ow meta was this episode? People collaborating about collaboration.
So many great ideas were shared in this episode. In particular, it was an ah-ha moment for me to attribute the “Fight, Flight or Freeze” reflex into a learning situation. And it’s true! If people are scared, worried, or fearful, solid collaboration simply won’t occur.
There was also mention of recognizing the difference between cooperative and collaborative learning.
Cooperative learning involves a group of individuals working together to achieve a common goal or complete a task. In contrast, collaborative learning focuses on group members sharing knowledge, skills, and resources to achieve a shared outcome.
Cooperative learning is more structured and goal-oriented, whereas collaborative learning is more flexible and emphasizes peer-to-peer interaction.
While it is a nuanced difference, it’s important to recognize how to use one versus the other.
There was also a lot of discussion about “words.” How are we communicating collaboration? Are we being encouraging and thoughtful? It would be easy to trigger someone who suffers from imposter syndrome or might have an inferiority complex.
Some key positive phrases:
- “Your input is valuable to our team’s success.”
- “I appreciate your willingness to collaborate.”
- “Let’s pool our resources and come up with a solution together.”
- “I think we could benefit from everyone’s unique perspectives.”
- “We can build on each other’s strengths and make something great.”
- “I’m excited to see what we can create as a team.”
This thoughtful conversation was a great follow-up to our “Creating a Safe Haven” chat. I encourage you to listen and compare notes.
