Do you love to collaborate?

Collaboration is hard and I believe requires a more evolved capabilities model as is different from simply cooperating or coordinating on matters. In the work I do in applying this concept to community development and engagement activities such as team projects, I find that folks are not oriented toward "The Commons" so lots of bridgework needed; believe true collaboration requires common values focus first and getting that lined up in a diverse community has been quite the challenge.

How can social innovation impact your life and community?

Look forward to learning more about hybrid models and social innovation applied to governance structures; specific tools, technologies that have been applied successfully.


Hi Folks - am Chair of a Collaborative Network and Community Green Team initiative here in Jersey City; can use all the help we can get in moving culture here toward more transparent government and community collaboration.
