Coordination/Collaboration

Perhaps it's a legacy of pioneer days on a windy (and wintry) prairie, but Twin Citians seem to have a genius for working together. We're connectors and cooperators, a little bit suspicious of the extreme forms of individualism. Whether it's a business and cultural community that pulled together to being the lauded Guthrie Theater here nearly fifty years ago, or the many groups that are coordinating efforts to create an efficient but also socially equitable light-rail construction project, we tend to turn pride in our towns into cooperative efforts to make them better. This isn't to say we don't stand up for our neighborhoods (we're famous for it) and sometimes struggle to achieve a Minneapolis-AND-Saint-Paul perspective, but teamwork, not individual stardom, is our public-issue default setting.
