Without cooperation the internal competitiveness in institutions produces paradoxical results.
Cooperation implies sharing one’s vital space while having reserved some place where that is not shared with others.
Cooperation implies the integration of a sharing activity and a place for one’s security.
Without reserving a safe place individuals cannot cooperate and competition is transformed into an utopia.
Cooperation Ethics Code

Building a cooperative environment requires:

– Sharing others’ successes
– Fulfilling and making others fulfil their commitments on time
– Being self-confident
– Being predictable, reliable and secure
– Respecting and demanding respect from others

Cooperation is a catalyst for individual and institutional learning. The lack of cooperation transforms competition into institutional self-destruction.
