At The Outlook Creative Group, we place a lot of value in collaboration: working together as equal partners towards a common goal. This is how we see all of the work we do with our clients, and we genuinely believe it’s what sets our work apart from the rest.
Here are four reasons why we think collaboration is key to effective teamwork:
True collaboration means that everybody is listened to. Communication in the workplace shouldn’t just be one way – or two ways, or three – but every way. We want you to know you can say whatever needs to be said. By keeping all avenues of communication open we can produce the best end product possible. Genuine and unafraid communication is the only way to achieve your maximum potential.
Working together as equals is exhilarating, and there’s nothing quite like a partner to keep you on your toes. This is all the more true in creative work. Think how many of the world’s greatest artists and thinkers did their best work in partnerships: Lennon and McCartney, Monty Python, Simon and Garfunkel, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak – need we go on?
Not all ideas are good ones, but you never know where the best ideas will come from. We love a good brainstorm and collaborating with our colleagues and clients. We take everybody’s ideas seriously. Some of our best work has sprouted from the most surprising places – long may it continue to do so.
Last but certainly not least, working as a true team is freeing. Nobody feels left out and everybody is valued; work is more enjoyable and we’re all the more productive for it. There’s nothing quite like looking forward to work every morning, knowing that each day brings new challenges, new ideas and new collaborations.
