  2. @techsavvydesign "The horizontal stroke of the 'T' is the disposition

    for collaboration across disciplines. It is composed of two things. First, empathy. It's important because it allows people to imagine the problem from another perspective- to stand in somebody else's shoes. Second, they tend to get very enthusiastic about other people's disciplines, to the point that they may actually start to practice them." Tim Brown CEO of IDEO From T-Shaped Stars: The Backbone of IDEO’s Collaborative Culture
