Secrets of successful collaboration: 35. reboot your language and then create a shared language

At the beginning of your relationship with collaborators, use everyday "day-to-day" language whilst communicating with them: reboot to the default language you all have in common.

Then create a shared language for ideas and concepts, etc., you have in common with your collaborators but for which you use different words: create a common language for things you have in common.

(Reboot your language to encourage conversation and increase mutual understanding. Create a shared language to not only encourage conversation and increase mutual understanding but also increase feelings of mutual connection and begin the process of creating a shared history of collaboration.)
