However, work is often the result of numerous smaller jobs added together. Even the brightest minds would falter from stress when these small jobs pile up with short deadlines.
A group of coworkers must be seen as a supportive structure within which responsibilities can be coordinated and assigned to prevent this. When delegating, give clear instructions and only sometimes check on the status.

- The effort, expense, and regular communication required to forge business partnerships.
Despite these obstacles, community collaboration can benefit from high-level support for a child and family schedule. A structured framework, like a kids’ “cabinet,” might encourage teamwork and set it as a standard. School and community collaboration is just as crucial as high-level official support. The level of support government organizations provide for local partnerships depends on various variables. Despite these administrative obstacles, state education agencies are promoting and collaborating with school-community cooperation more and more.
