Ten I's of Effective Collaboration

Rosabeth Moss Kanter developed the Ten I's and our board consultant, Ann Charles Watts, brought them to our attention.

Effective government of the people, by the people, for the people expands life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness of its residents. It's effectiveness lies in the effectiveness of the people to collaborate. The neighborhood Caring Citizens' Congress is meant to be a community of practice at collaboration in a setting of neighbors of various political party affiliation.
