What People Are Saying

In Stronger Together, Nicole Mahoney empowers readers to reconsider how they look at collaborations. The book contains frameworks, relevant data, practical tips, and case studies that cross the breadth of her years of experience in the travel industry, giving readers a plethora of tools, inspiration, and insight."

Roni Weiss

Executive Director, Travel Unity

I used to think of collaborations as a nice to have, not a need to have. Collaborations struck me as coordination hell.  Reading Stronger Together changed my mind. In the messy middle of collaboration is where the big ideas are found. Big ideas that move your business and change the world. Nicole’s collaboration framework shows how to quickly get to and through that magical middle. Stronger Together made me a believer: so many more possibilities emerge when we collaborate. "

Stronger Together: Building World-Changing Collaborations that Succeed is a blueprint that was born out of experience, testing, application, and refinement. Nicole Mahoney provides practical example after example that demonstrates what she calls "The 3-C Framework for Collaboration" and how to apply it. She's based the book on hundreds of podcast interviews she recorded with industry experts and thought leaders, her own first-hand experience earned from 35 years in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry, and third-party research studies that she commissioned. This book will give you everything necessary to go out and build your own successful collaborations. I highly recommend it."

The book suggests ideas and solutions which may not be natural to you, collaborating closely with other organizations, even your competitors! To accomplish more, we need to make sure that we are open to and use the power of collaboration with ALL we possibly can.

We all know what you see when you throw a pebble into a flat pond, small ripples expanding out from where the pebble hit the water. Using collaboration is like throwing a big rock instead of a pebble, you go from ripples to waves! 

I highly recommend this book and suggest that you use a new highlighter as you read it, there are so many great ideas that you’ll want to refer back to!"
