Collaboration Zone

What is a Collaboration Zone?

Collaboration starts inside you, with the logical side of the brain talking to the feeling side, the conscious in communication with the unconscious, the seen working hand in glove with the unseen.  When not in emergency mode, this is our natural way of being.

Collaboration Zone is the place where “your deep gladness  meets the world’s deep hunger,” and you work in a sweet spot where the work you do seems made for you.

When collaboration is flowing between two people or amongst a group, the connection is electric.  A thought sparks another thought, and then another, and ideas flow. We complete each other’s sentences, we nod, we make eye contact, then gaze into the distance.  Collaboration is play, creative flow, and it can feel like magic.  It can melt barriers and make longstanding differences irrelevant.

Collaboration is what I do.

I’m Liz Williams, and I coach people who want to change something in their lives.  Maybe it’s a meeting you lead or attend, maybe it’s time to change your work, maybe you’re at a new life stage. Some of us find ourselves in new and tricky territory these days – or maybe it’s the same old territory that we are newly willing to take on in all its trickiness.  Either way, its time to “…show up and choose to be present, pay attention to what has heart and meaning, speak the truth without blame or judgement and be open to outcome, not attached to outcome” (Angeles Arrien, The Fourfold Way.)
