C is for Cooperation

As this month focuses on the letter C, it’s about time Cookie Monster is used an analogy! This blue gentleman taught generations of young learners about the alphabet, and the letter C most of all. 

Cookie Monster says, “The Apex, Best and Chief, of all C vocabulary associated with team building is Definitively and Enthusiastically, the Foremost skill of COOPERATION.”   

Cooperation is comprised of crucial components like those needed in a recipe for Cookie Monster’s favorite chocolate chip cookies. Success of cooperative effort is baked in an oven preheated by collaboration. A dash of flexibility and a full cup of empathy start as the base ingredients. Each ingredient adds flavor or performs a function in the science of the baking process. That moment of satisfaction, at the first bite of the finished product, relies on a well followed recipe.
