Cooperation/Coordination, an example
A good example of Cooperation/Coordination < http://www.collaboration.me.uk/WHAT_DOES_IT_ LOOK_LIKE.html> that I have experienced has been parenting classes. Many years ago, when I lived in Madison County , a number of community organizations where holding parenting classes. None were well attended and this, of course, did not help discussion and the important piece of learning from each other through participation. Each organization felt it important and each organization spent a lot of resources to make it happen. Through cooperation and coordination we were able to bring them all together and have as many as 50+ people participate, per class. The same thing happened here in Lewiston , the Community Alliance for Young Children was able to bring a number of different parenting classes under one umbrella in order to provide a much larger and better attended class and for some years, a much better resourced offering.
