28 Feb Formation: 3 Reasons Why You Should Collaborate
Hey, ya’ll! As February comes to a close, we wanted to take the time to share a Black History Month tribute. We were asked by one of our blogger friends, Style Delegate to do a Formation inspired photo shoot with some fierce bloggers in the Orlando area along shooting with an AMAZING photographer, @Shaycaptures. It felt so good to be able to collab with all of these beautiful black bloggers over the weekend. This photo shoot represented not only unity, support, and sisterhood, but collaboration and not competition. It all went down on this past Saturday, however, we’ll let the pics tell the story.
But before we do, we wanted to give you 3 Reasons Why You Should Collaborate. Now, this could be in any area, whether it’s on your 9-5, your marriage, your business, your organization, etc. The list can go on. But here are the 3 Reasons Why You Should Collaborate:
1. Creates Accountability
Yes, you can set your own goals and reach them. But how much more can you be effective when you enlist help. It’s a principle! When you have that accountability partner(s) in place, you can be sure you will be able to crush all of your goals and them some! And plus, you’ll be able to help others reach theirs as well!
2. Creates Self-Awareness
Being able to collab with others creates a self-awareness. Besides you being able to offer your strengths, it puts out there your weaknesses too. Those are the areas in which you have those who you collab with, to shine in.
3. Creates Learning & Growth Opportunities
We can’t tell you how important this is. You know, there is the saying that if you are the smartest one in your circle/group, then you need a new circle/group. It’s crucial to be able to collab with those who you can learn from and grow from. They’ll be able to push you into your next level!
