Smart Collaboration: How Professionals and Their Firms Succeed by Breaking Down Silos
Collaboration holds the key to your success – and your firm’s survival
In this 60-minute web-based discussion, attendees will learn both how and why firms earn higher margins, inspire greater client loyalty, attract and retain the better talent, and gain a competitive edge when collaborating across business units and other boundaries.
Collaboration is a critical component of success for today’s competitive businesses. No one consultant or lawyer-or even one functional group-can guide a client through today’s complex challenges, which often span technological, regulatory, economic, and environmental issues on an increasingly global scale. Yet organizational silos, as well as individual “stars” who build their own reputations and books of business, often block true collaboration. And as businesses scale, it becomes more difficult to know-let alone trust-colleagues located at different sites.
Collaboration is a proven way to improve business results and boost client loyalty. Remaining siloed is not an option. As the threat landscape becomes more complex, the only way to respond effectively is through cross-functional networks. Four reasons why collaboration is essential are:
~ Collaboration is the only way to deal with the clashing trends of professional specialization versus problem complexity
~ Cross unit collaboration increases revenue
~ Collaboration generates higher levels of performance
~ Collaboration drives to client loyalty
