The Collaborative Way® is an intentional and designed way of working together that harnesses the collective intelligence, imagination and spirit of a company's workforce.

When put into practice, this unique methodology offers a critical strategic advantage, even in highly competitive markets and against companies with more funding and greater resources.

Introducing the Collaborative Way App

The Collaborative Way App is a unique and ground-breaking digital program that trains your team to work in a way that’s been proven to improve communication, collaboration, and conflict resolution for over 25 years.

Your team will learn the five core elements of The Collaborative Way: Listening Generously, Speaking Straight, Being For Each Other, Honoring Commitments, and Acknowledgement and Appreciation by watching videos and animations, taking quizzes and surveys, and chatting with your teammates in the app.

You’ll also have the opportunity to take what you’ve learned and make it real through weekly exercises that you complete outside of the app. This innovative way of training your team gives you the benefits of in-person training without the drawbacks of pulling all of your team members away from their workplace responsibilities.

Lloyd Fickett & Associates works with you to develop a core leadership group that is actively learning and practicing The Collaborative Way®. We then support you in spreading the practice throughout your company, giving you the capability to train and develop this way of working into the future with or without our further involvement.

Our clients are owners of successful companies who have high integrity and a personal commitment to building a great company. In their own words, our clients share the impact The Collaborative Way® has had on their companies…click here.

“Our industry is tough and demanding, and yet we have created a unique culture where we respect one another while constantly pushing toward taking on the challenges and changes necessary to become and remain the best. The Collaborative Way® gives us the tools to accomplish this. Without it we would not be as good a place to work and we would not be nearly as good at what we do.”

Why use an intentional way of working together?

We all come to the workplace with different backgrounds and expectations about how we’re supposed to work together. As a result, we are prone to ineffectiveness, misunderstanding and upset. In order to create an environment conducive to collaboration, we need to design and take on learning an intentional way of working together. Read more.
