“Carolyn, this is WHO YOU ARE!”…excerpt from Evolve by Rosebeth Moss Kanter, “The best collabronauts are good at making connections, both human and intellectual. They are constantly on the lookout for new ways to benefit from combining forces with partners. They venture into unfamiliar territory, make deals, and return with knowledge that transforms their home world. They bring organizations closer together, introduce people, and build relationships among groups of people that can initially seem like aliens to one another….They convince their colleagues to forget the old rules and try something new, something that comes with having partners.” September 2011Brenda Dickenson, Dean Continuing Education of Normandale Community College
