Punjabi Chamber works with its member to give its people a better chance to get the services they need. A coordinating relationship requires more organizational involvement, time, and trust than a networking relationship. However, the results can significantly improve people’s lives and chamber values that.
Punjabi Chamber works with its member organizations to share information and make adjustments in their services – they share resources to help each other do a better job. In a cooperative relationship, organizations may share staff, volunteers, expertise, space, funds, and other resources. Cooperating requires more trust and a greater investment in time than either networking or coordination. In order to enter into a cooperative relationship, organizations also have to let go of some turf issues. Organizations have to be willing to share the ownership and the responsibility, to risk some hassles, and to reap the rewards of their efforts together.
Punjabi Chamber In a collaborative relationship, organizations help each other expand or enhance their capacities to do their jobs. As Arthur Zimmerman says, “Collaboration is a relationship in which each organization wants to help its partners become the best that they can be.” In collaborative relationships, people begin to see each other as partners rather than competitors. This shift in view is profound in a society that has had so much emphasis on individualism.
Zimmerman goes on to say that when organizations collaborate they have to, “share risks, responsibilities, and rewards.” In sharing risks, each organization is, to some extent, throwing its lot in with another organization. For example, when the school and community counseling center jointly apply for training, they are both risking their time and credibility in an effort to raise money to improve the capacity of each organization. In a collaborative relationship, Punjabi Chamber is expecting each organization must also carry its share of the responsibilities. Just like in the “Little Red Hen,” if one group “plants the wheat, harvests it, takes it to the mill, and bakes it,” then that one group will also “eat the bread” by itself. On the other hand, if everyone does the work all the way through, “everyone can eat the bread together.”
Additionally, all the organizations can and should share the credit and recognition. Collaboration is a much bigger enterprise than networking, coordinating, and cooperating; but the potential for change can also be greater. It implies a much higher level of trust, risk taking, sharing of turf, and commitment. Collaboration can give people hope, because it demonstrates that people from different groups can overcome their mistrust and other obstacles to accomplish larger goals together.
The Punjabi Chamber is providing valuable group benefits and discounts to its members including reduced pricing on purchases of products and services from various industries including insurance, accounting, restaurants, hospitality, and legal, to name a few. We are developing a program for our members to offer discounts to each other.
