That cooperation is wanted and expected at any workplace is known by us all. But it’s only a few of us that know what true cooperation really consists of. Only few know that curiosity is the most important ingredient in cooperation, and only a few know that honest and deep felt curiosity is one of the most difficult disciplines amongst humans. When only a few of us has this insight, then it’s due to lack of honest and deep felt curiosity. Most people are happily ignorant to what true cooperations takes. This ignorance makes it possible for many good people to give extremely bad advice when it comes to cooperation. These bad advices are often given by people, who them self is part of the cooperation. Although it’s really bad advice it often given with the best intentions. So how do organizations create and develop cooperation and how do they create fruitful cooperation relations?
