We all digest information in different ways, so I’m sharing all about the power of collaboration in writing (see below) and via this short video as well. Enjoy!
In the work that I do I often talk about the 3 Cs – Collaboration, Connection and Creation.
This month we’re turning the spotlight on collaboration.
So what is collaboration and why is it so important for our happiness and success?
By definition, collaboration is: the action of working with someone to produce something.
Collaboration is in our DNA and is reflected all around us in our human relationships and in nature. Look at the incredible miracle of bees working together to build the most intricate hives. And the almost military style way that ants collaborate to build their colonies and gather food.
The way I run my business has collaboration firmly at its core. My business thrives and grows because it connects into the businesses of the women I coach, and their businesses in turn connect into each other through the collaborations that are created.
This dynamic of collaboration has been very deliberate. I started my Money Magicians group as a safe space for every woman who has ever coached with me to be in community. I knew I wanted it to be a place where we all thrive by collaborating with one another. And it makes me really proud to see the way the women support and encourage each other to stretch and grow their businesses.
The power of collaboration
In last month’s blog ‘Why Do You Do What You Do?’ I shared about the shift I’ve made in my business, and how transformative it is to be placing community at the forefront of everything I do.
Carrying the burden of business and life by ourselves is very heavy. But within a community where you create collaborative relationships, that burden diminishes significantly.
More and more I’m seeing this as absolute truth through my money coaching groups and community.
When the ladies first join they’re a group of strangers that are thrown together. The experience of community and collaboration is often quite an alien concept to some of them.
But extraordinarily quickly something magical starts to happen. That innate part of each woman wakes up and they instinctively remember the power of working together, of supporting each other, and of exchanging skills and teaching each other.
A collaboration buddy can change everything
All of our relationships are a form of collaboration, and some are more successful than others. But when it comes to business and your own personal development, it’s super helpful to find someone who will collaborate with you and hold you accountable.
So often we sit in the space of knowing in our hearts that we want change and growth. We want to take our business to the next level. We want to create a deeper connection with ourselves. But all too often we get in our own way and keep ourselves stuck and spinning our wheels in the same old rut.
Finding someone to collaborate with and hold each other accountable to your dreams, can be life changing. Not only are you there offering support and encouragement to another, but you’re receiving the same in return. This type of reciprocity creates a powerful dynamic and sends a clear message that you’re showing up and taking action to meet the Universe halfway. This is the ultimate manifestation energy.
So, let me ask you…
What collaborations are you already part of?
Who are you working with?
Who can you work with?
What can you do to improve your situation by collaborating with someone?
What skills do you have that you can offer and in return receive the skills that someone else has that you need?
One of the very best places to find awesome people to collaborate with is in a trusted community. And even if I say so myself, my Money Magicians community is right up there with the best!
