Secrets of successful collaboration: 41. explore what lies between, within, around, beneath and behind

Verbalise thoughts and intuitions that lie between, within, around and behind your explicit and fully formed ideas and opinions; encourage others to do the same. Identify what no one is talking about (e.g., the "elephant in the room" that no one wishes to tackle) and talk about it. Explore taken for granted but often powerful assumptions that lie beneath decisions and actions (e.g., assumptions about what is or is not the problem). 

(Explore what lies between, within, around, beneath and behind to enrich conversation, increase sharing of opinions and ideas, etc., increase inclusion, challenge existing taken for granted assumptions and beliefs, increase mutual understanding, encourage curiosity, and make what was implicit explicit.)
