Collaborating with your partner is bound to have its challenges, but how do you navigate partnership on a large, public scale that not only involves collaboration — but also shared responsibility around representation and messaging? We’re taking a look at what came up in the dynamic of our relationship as we were confronted with feelings of control, shadow parts of self, and approaching challenges from an individualistic vs. team perspective.
The attachment we have to something — an idea, an outcome, and expectation — can often be a result of focusing on the attachment instead of the “why” behind the shared goal. When we are able to remind ourselves of the mission and feelings of empowerment around the shared goal, we are able to embody collaboration as an extension of the relationship we have with each other.
We share three lessons for success that helped us come back to our shared belief: Taking a stand makes the world a better place. Plus, we tap into each other’s perspective to learn how the other was responding to and resolving conflict that occurred along the way, as well as how we came back to our mantra of, “We can do more than I can.”
