Collaboration occurs at the level of our being and our doing, and it implies reciprocity. Collaboration is recognition of the dignity of persons and of peoples; it implies welcoming and sharing what each one is and offers.
It requires attitudes of trust and mutual support, vulnerability and openness. It recognizes the need to learn from others and requires flexibility and imagination in discovering new possibilities together.
Collaboration implies team building, delegating and assuming our co-responsibility for the common good, working on common projects and developing together new processes in our service of education.
