How do we work better together?

One of our taglines at the Northwestern Buffett Institute for Global Affairs is that, “The new genius is a collaborative genius.” But what does it actually look and feel like to collaborate successfully? 

Preoccupied with this question, I am invested in exploring:

  • How we merge diverse expertise and integrate disparate theoretical and methodological approaches
  • How we can embrace the challenge to the ego of questioning our own assumptions
  • How we can learn to lean into inevitable conflict and disagreement
  • What strategies we can deploy to grow through our efforts to collaborate
  • What successful collaboration entails
