The TLT Collaborative Skills Climate Survey ™ measures five sets of collaborative skills (Collaborative Intention, Truthfulness, Self-Accountability, Awareness of Self and Others and Problem Solving and Negotiation) along two dimensions (Current and Desired). Research shows that high scores on these skill sets are essential in situations where collaboration is necessary.
Organizations that require people to perform complex tasks and/or work with high levels of interdependency need people with excellent collaborative skills in order to perform at optimal levels. Research has shown that an organization’s ability to foster and sustain collaborative relationships and mutually supportive work environments is directly related to the organization’s overall effectiveness. Collaborative skills increase natural enthusiasm not just within individuals, but also among team members and between departments, customers, suppliers, partners and all interdependent parts of any organization.
