"How to Foster a Cooperative Culture"

One of the things Joan Frye Williams and I stress in our talks is the importance of collaboration today in three areas of our work: how we work with one another in libraries; how we work externally to create new partnerships; and how we set up spaces for our users to work together.

For a terrific short article on the first of those three points, check out Lynda Gratton's excellent article "How to Foster a Cooperative Culture," published last month on the Harvard Business Publishing site. If you haven't subscribed to HBP's service yet, check it out; it's a terrific way to get lots of free information on management and leadership issues right in your in box.
