Our correspondence is ALWAYS confidential.

How a group creates collaboration as a typical group behavior takes careful planning with leadership and that planning process, and all the conversations and correspondence necessary to do that, have to be confidential. You see me smiling in my picture but I will tell you (as others will also) that I take my work very seriously. When a group fails to collaborate bad things are happening to good people and from my perspective its needless suffering. I find the suffering that results from bad things happening to good people very disturbing, so I am motivated to help the change. That change requires careful planning and careful planning requires confidentiality.

Make sense?

When you work with Bob Donaldson on a challenging, full-of-potential-pitfalls kind of project, you are in for one of the most rewarding professional achievements of your life. I have been working with Bob on complex infrastructure projects for nearly 20 years. He is a master at leading mission-oriented teams who respect, challenge, and support each other in working towards a common goal. For Bob, collaboration is not just a bunch of people sitting around a table making nice. Collaboration is work – hard work – real work. And the stakes for the outcome of the process are often very high. It is in this kind of environment that Bob thrives and excels. He produced a small “Guide to Collaborative Behaviors” for our team – this guide has become one of my “go to” resources in working with other clients who struggle with difficult team dynamics. It always works!
