I would like to explore intelligent co-operation - how we work together in pairs, small groups, big teams to create and grow, ultimately to learn about ourselves. I have been drafting some sections/ blog posts/ blocks of experience and theory, and thought I would post them here and see how it works. Explore what we can use CC for - and also see if anyone else would like to intelligently co-operate on this....
Intelligent co-operation is a cheerful idea: we work together intelligently to joint ends. It is also a specific phrase used by a teacher, Theun Mares, who taught me about it. Theun focuses on intelligent co-operation in the relationship between two individuals, but it is highly relevant to the challenges of team working as well.
Intelligent co-operation is working with another person to mutual enhancement. When it is successful, both people feel fulfilled. It takes the best from both, and multiplies it to achieve what neither could achieve on their own. That exhilarating feeling of collaboration is not unusual; working together is integral to human beings. We are co-operating animals.
