ABSTRACT
The article focuses on effective collaboration which is essential for success. Office culture that lacks teamwork contributes to loss of money and direction and little growth. Leaders are described to often make the mistake of focusing strategy in one area without considering interaction, focus and collaborative solutions for the teams. Positive results are gained through collaboration when accountability, solution-focus and effective communication are targeted. To create this team culture, all members are advised to make mindset and behavior changes.
