-Benjamin Zander, Author of "The Art of Possibility"
Building a trusting environment in which people trust you as a leader and trust one another as peers
Trust-building activities
Hold one another accountable for completing tasks
Focus on relationships- get to know one another and make others realize you care about them and their efforts
Help others realize their potential and gain confidence in leadership abilities

Why is this difficult?
Difficulty trusting others to get things done; you would rather do them yourself
Power hungry- selfish desire to hold all the power to tell others what to do and receive all the recognition
Leaders must have two fundamental skills to foster collaboration
Trusting others pays off!
Be the first to trust
Be open to influence
Share Information and resources

Develop cooperative goals and roles
Support norms of reciprocity
Structure projects that promote joint support
Support face-to-face interactions
