Positive Cooperation

The complexity of today's requirements needs active cooperation

We are learning through the pandemic that digitalisation demands entirely new "cultural techniques

The challenge

Cooperation is the secret of success in human evolution. However, it is anything but a natural process. Accustomed to competition, both within organisations, between employees and between organisations themselves, the opening up to a greater willingness to cooperate is a challenge.

Today's complexity and the amount of information urgently require the further development of our cooperation skills! 

The success of good teams, for example, depends among other things on how people trust and support each other. In this respect, we need more psychological safety.  

Working together in teams and in large networks depends on the art of cooperation. 

Our approach

Positive Cooperation is a compact basic programme. The first elementary conditions for successful cooperation are taught step by step on the basis of the findings of Positive Psychology, neuroscience and sociology. 


  1. Basics of positive cooperation
  2. Clarification of goals and objectives
  3. Deepening personal strengths
  4. Conducting actively constructive conversations in a targeted way
  5. Developing common direction and meaning 

Further modules:

  1. Psychological safety, trust and positive emotion
  2. Diversity in cooperation and work relationsship
  3. Decision-making and power in cooperation


The basic programme is designed as a virtual learning journey.  Using the digital tool, the Talent Miles web app, participants work in a group of 6 to 30 people. 

Over the period of about six weeks, the topic of Positive Cooperation is developed through a broad spectrum of tasks which are then put into practice.

Within the group, there are established learning partnerships, the buddies, who support each other on the learning journey. In this way, positive cooperation is tried out right from the start in a very pragmatic way.

The time required for the whole programme is about 10-12 hours in total. The time needed to complete the individual tasks can be organised within the given time frame of the learning journey. Well-selected learning impulses, such as articles or films deepen the learning experience.

Our experience shows how the combination of practice and reflection, is the prerequisite for effective learning and anchors it in the long term.
