Friday Fun: Get Back to Work

I’m amazed to see how far collaboration has come in the organization.

It amazes me even more how much further it has to go.

I recall a conversation I once had in a public gym which went something like this.

“Hey Dan, how is that ‘collaboration’ thing going?”

“Pretty well, I think.”

“Well, I believe it’s overhead, so I’ve asked my team to get back to work. We’re not ‘collaborating’ going forward.”

Maybe Edwin Land was right … “Politeness is the poison of collaboration.”
