According to global research study conducted by Vantage Partners, respondents said, on average, that they could only accomplish 35% of their personal objectives through individual effort. (Not surprisingly, the percentages were considerably lower for managers and executives.) In other words, the majority of objectives for which individuals are accountable require influencing and collaborating with others.
At an organizational level, this means that effective decision-making, agile execution, and breakthrough innovation all require collaboration among individuals who have different perspectives, ideas, priorities, and ways of doing things.
