Availability for discussion and collaboration

‘Discussion’ refers to examining the topic thoroughly to reach a conclusion. Collectively, it is called Group discussion which means the exchange of ideas by participating candidates on a specific subject or topic. The whole concept is to bring collectively a unit of people on a common platform to share their ideas. http://targetstudy.com/articles/importance-of-group-discussion.html

‘Collaboration’ is all about bringing people together from different departments, locations, and teams, then focusing their efforts on a common goal. https://blog.jostle.me/blog/6-collaboration-skills-and-how-to-foster-them.

The availability for discussion and collaboration, therefore, means to be open to discuss and to collaborate with others to reach a common view on different topics and objectives, by being mentally flexible and open to other people’s opinions and considerations.
