Advance Praise for Smarter Collaboration:"In the coming years, one of the most significant private-sector divides will be between companies that embrace collaboration, bridge-building, and collective action to help them thrive and those that remain limited by siloed thinking and poor partnership skills. Gardner and Matviak will help your business ensure it is on the right side of that line." - Paul Polman, former CEO, Unilever; business leader; campaigner; coauthor, Net Positive"The authors' deep grasp of the business world combines with expertise in the psychology underpinning our human foibles. The result is actionable advice for implementing smarter collaboration to capture its financial and human benefits." - Amy C. Edmondson, professor, Harvard Business School; author, The Fearless Organization"Gardner and Matviak provide leaders with a clear guide to making smarter collaboration happen. It's full of tips on today's most pressing topics, including hybrid working, inclusion, diversity and equity, and the role of technology and analytics. This is a must-read for any business leader." - Nhlamu Dlomu, Global Head of People, KPMG International"An organization's culture determines its destiny. Smarter Collaboration does an excellent job of showing you how to get a great one." - Ray Dalio, Founder, Bridgewater Associates; author, Principles"Everyone talks about collaboration, but relatively few people actually know how to do it effectively. Gardner and Matviak have written the go-to guide for doing collaboration right. Their use cases for smarter collaboration will resonate deeply with any business leader who's seeking to rev up innovation, profitability, and employee engagement." - Gunjan Kedia, Vice Chairman, U.S. Bank"With the scale and complexity of challenges facing business and society today, knowing how to collaborate-how to really collaborate-is one of the most important skills of our time. Through pragmatic insight and engaging examples, Gardner and Matviak illuminate a path for leaders that begins with truly valuing the wisdom people bring, and results in innovations beyond what any one group could create alone." - Sandy Speicher, former CEO, IDEO
