The basic meaning of co-operation is “working together”. The reason or motivation why people want to co-operate is very simple: together we know more and we reach targets or produce results which we cannot reach or produce on our own. As we also know, that unfortunately in the real world, the practice of cooperation is much less simple. In fact, inside organisations or between them, effective and efficient cooperation appears to be notoriously difficult. One reason for this is that we have to learn to work together; and that takes effort, time, money and other resources. The good news is that one can learn the rewarding skills of working together and that there are experienced consultants, such as SYNERGIE, to assist you with that.
