Pros and cons of collaboration in the workplace
Pitching an idea can be tough, especially if your organization practices co-creation, an iterative form of collaboration that includes input from multiple internal and external stakeholders. This means that you might have to pitch multiple times to your collaborators, some of whom might be from a completely different department.
But more often than not, your collaborators are going to point out something you’ve missed, or offer a perspective that you hadn’t considered. Rather than get possessive of your brilliant idea, remember that you’re all in this together. It’s a group effort. Plus, this is your chance to incorporate feedback and further hone what you’ve worked so hard on.
