One of the reasons so many startups become successful these days may very well be because there are so many different collaboration types of people in the world. It doesn’t really matter what company you look at, there are always a number of different personality types to be found. As a matter of fact, there are said to be 9 dominating collaboration types in every company. You just have to look around, and you will find them in your company as well, if your company has more than 9 people that is.
When you find the right collaboration of people, you’ll instantly know it since everything will seem to be a whole lot easier to manage. Some of the world’s most successful business ideas were founded on the great collaboration of two or more people. The top 9 collaboration types are usually found in any company, but the ones who work best together are usually people from the same type. Of course, there are collaborations that work great without this being true too. As it has been said many times before, there are always exceptions to the rule.
If you would like to identify your own collaboration type then this infographic called The 9 Types Of Collaborators might be of good use to you. It’s presented by CentralDesktop (design by Visual Infographics) and could easily put you and your coworkers in their respective collaboration types or type.
By identifying your own collaboration type you could (notice the attention on “could”) possibly find compatible collaboration types which would make your collaboration easier. In the end though, it comes down to how much you are prepared to meet your collaborator halfway. If you have a common goal, it’s way easier to find a collaboration type that is suitable for both of you. However, if that mediation is not met, you have a situation which is most definitely caused by incompatible collaboration types. It’s not the easiest of situations to solve, but never give up. There are solutions to everything, and giving up is the last one you should ever embrace. Collaboration is all about listening, trusting and by all means truly collaborating. Now, which one of these collaboration types are you?
