Moving from the Mode of Create to the Mode of Collaborate during the ChangeMaker Innovation Process ™ allows for collaborative feedback to enhance and elevate ideas and design solutions.
Solicit positive and constructive feedback. Use teamwork to inspire and encourage. Allow scientific discourse and collaborative conversations to bring new insights to the process/project.
What key questions can I ask others?
In the Mode of Collaborate, we choose to participate in thought-provoking discussions and conversations with the goals of gaining new insights, perspectives, and understandings. Collaborating effectively allows for all voices and ideas to be heard in a safe environment. In the end, we believe we can learn from each other and harness the Power of Together for widespread impact.
Collaboration creates value TOGETHER that can not be created alone!
The “I Like, I Wish, I Wonder” activity and graphic organizer is a place to start. This can be used in one-on-one feedback sessions or in small group scenarios to discuss organizational culture or specific feedback on new concepts, ideas, and design solutions.
What is the value in Collaborating?*
- Harness the collective perspectives and strength of your team
- Uncover new ideas and unexpected areas of exploration
- Step beyond obvious solutions to increase innovation potential
- Create fluency and flexibility in your innovative options

What you choose to focus your attention on will determine how you interact with others. Cheers to Collaboration! – Amanda Kopischke
