How to Avoid Shit & Uncomfortable Situations in Collaborations?
This week, I received an email with a conflict between “a match” I did. However, they didn’t use the Collabwith platform for their collaboration, they did all the discussions outside the platform and now they complaint that one said X, the other said Y, and now they have crushed the whole trust, relationship and collaboration. Why? Because they didn’t talk with clarity from the beginning, they avoid to talk about budget, about what type of collaboration, or the objective of the collaboration.
Even, the main misunderstanding was that when they were talking by phone: For one partner was already a consulting, and for the other was a preliminary call to discover if it was a good match for them. The biggest mistake was that they didn’t clarify what they are doing, and now they are blaming each other. Terrible.
