Abstract:

International consultant Adam Kahane teaches us how to work with people whom we might not like or trust. He explains how flexibility and improvisation can lead to what he calls stretch collaboration. He outlines the five misunderstandings that keep people from effectively collaborating with those people and shows readers how they can successfully engage with positive results instead. Collaboration is increasingly difficult and increasingly necessary. Often, to get something done that really matters to us, we need to work with people we don't agree with or like or trust. Adam Kahane has faced this challenge many times, working on big issues like democracy and jobs and climate change and on everyday issues in organizations and families. He has learned that our conventional understanding of collaboration--that it requires a harmonious team that agrees on where it's going, how it's going to get there, and who needs to do what--is wrong. Instead, we need a new approach to collaboration that embraces discord, experimentation, and genuine cocreation--which is exactly what Kahane provides in this groundbreaking and timely book [Publisher description].
