Pantone, the company that specializes in color, has recently found a way to share its expertise in a new market. Pantone has paired with Caron yarn and now offers a new selection of yarn that comes pre-packaged in a color palette – pairing shades that the average person may not have combined, but that Pantone knows will make a beautiful product.

Caron could have made its own mix of colors, but instead relied on the credibility of Pantone to add a distinction over other generic yarn offerings. It seems like a wise move for both companies.

Who is an expert outside your field that could enhance your organization? Maybe it’s time you knit your interests together in a colorful partnership.

About the Author leadership dots by dr. beth triplett

I'm the chief connector at leadership dots where I serve as "the string" for individuals and organizations. Like stringing pearls together to make a necklace, "being the string" is an intentional way of thinking and behaving – making linkages between things that otherwise appear random or unconnected – whether that be supervising a staff, completing a dissertation or advancing a project in the workplace. I share daily leadership dots on my blog to provide examples of “the string” in action. I use the string philosophy through coaching, consulting and teaching to help others build capacity in themselves and their organizations. I craft analogies and metaphors that help people comprehend complex topics and understand their role in the system. My favorite work involves helping those new to supervision or newly promoted supervisors build confidence and learn the skills necessary to effectively lead their team.
