“In a winning culture, everyone understands who they are as a player on the team and what they bring forward to make the team win,” says Diana Styles, Senior Vice President for HR Global Sales & Brand at adidas.

Winning, she clarifies, of course doesn’t mean competing with your colleagues – winning means aligning internally as a team so you’re set to compete externally.

In her coaching-focused leadership role, Diana knows how important it is to bring people into your new ventures and decision making. Starting with a seed of an idea, a collaborative leader goes out to find the right partners, the diverse voices that need to be part of the conversation, and who can help the idea grow.

Another essential part to delivering on collaboration is accountability.
