Why Collaborate? liability issues, we could only have

  • “On most tasks, especially those that involve

    some degree of complexity and require some

    degree of ingenuity, people are able to do a

    better job in well-functioning groups than they

    can on their own. They are also more likely to be

    excited about their work.”

    Alfie Kohn, Punished by Rewards
