TEDx is an amazing experience that serves as a humility training. It reminds you that there are always more speakers who can make a difference in the world. Collaboration has become a popular topic among people as they understand that they can't learn everything on their own. Learning from others is essential to stay up-to-date. It is important to acknowledge that no individual is as intelligent as a collective group. With over 50 books written, my credentials as a collaborator are commendable. Despite being told by my professors in graduate school that I couldn't write, I proved them wrong. My mom's suggestion to write a book by myself led me to only write two books individually, collaborating with others for the rest. On my 70th birthday, I gathered all my co-authors for a memorable celebration. The question I often receive is how to collaborate with different personalities and egos. In this presentation, I will share three collaborations I have had to provide insights on successful collaboration. In my first job after graduate school, as an assistant to the Dean of the College of Business at Ohio University, I discovered my passion for teaching. One day, I approached Paul, the chairman of the management department, who was known for his exceptional leadership course, to sit in as a student. After taking his class, Paul approached me, expressing his desire to write a textbook as he believed he couldn't write well. Recognizing our strengths, we collaborated on a textbook titled "Management of Organizational Behavior." The success of our collaboration taught me two important lessons - never let others define your capabilities, and when two people with shared goals come together, powerful collaborations are formed. This collaboration allowed both of us to achieve our individual aspirations.
