For a ball to get rolling, someone has to push it. Collaboration is people working together and it only starts when someone takes the first step; when someone extends a hand to another. Sometimes itís a simple phone call that gets the collaboration ball rolling. Sometimes itís a chance meeting on Main Street when one person says to another ďperhaps we could do things differently here; letís give it a try.Ē Maybe itís you who takes the first step; maybe itís someone else at your encouragement; maybe itís you responding to the initiative of someone else who has extended their hand. Remember, if no one takes that first step, nothing is likely to happen.
