Learning and working collaboratively
to elevate yourself and others.
Relationships build capacity for achieving goals. We can build relationships if we collaborate both openly and willingly, taking into account the depth and breadth of the experience that everyone brings to the table. Together we can be teachers and learners COLLABOVATING towards greatness!
We are truly in this together.
As I sat in that chair being interviewed about my "why", I thought about all that I learned as a Black Woman, a Mom, an Entrepreneur, a Racial Strategist, Educator, Speaker, and at that moment a national award winner. All of who I am was created and continues to be developed by the relationships I cultivate(d). Relationships were needed in every instance to help me reach a goal. Professionally, so I could lead and develop healthy, strong, and successful teams, run organizations, maintain profitability, and meet objectives. Personally, because I am the type of human that can't survive without relationships and I believe that every (good and bad) relationship makes me a better person. My job now is to share my skills, strategies, and experiences while learning and elevating collaboratively through partnership.
