Are you a team player?

Cooperation is the key to team success. We all naturally adapt, adjust, and copy the culture of our environment. In a team, it’s ideal to cooperate and collaborate with kindness and good intentions. Relationships among the team matter most. Relationships build the team. Hence, we want to keep a harmonious relationship by not hurting each other.

An exceptional leader knows how to inspire hard work in the team, he knows how to motivate them to cooperate, and he also knows how to humbly ask. A good leader does not judge or assume right away. He uses humble inquiry to become an effective leader. To be a good leader, you need to cooperate, which means: you need to be kind, you need good intentions, you need to be humble and ASK.

Are you kind enough to truly collaborate? 

Here's food for thought on my blog:

Was half-kidding about the blog, but if someone has one - it's not a bad way to get a measure of what they may add to the conversation... Happy to engage in this thread or just about anywhere else except facebook.

Effective #Collaboration isn't only about the tools, but they sure do help!
 
Great Reasons to go Google

This video is a trip down an uncomfortable memory lane. It's time to wake up to what's happening in the Google cloud...

- Hangouts (private, recorded, transcribed, translated subtitles, adjustable bandwidth, multitude of team apps)

- Google Docs for agenda creation and collaborative real time note taking.

- Google+ events, circles and communities for sharing invites, decisions and wider communications, effortlessly.

- Android and iPhone stability make mobility more than a feasibility. Try the Nexus 5, 7 or 10 for example.

The 21st century is all about innovation and the ability to work smarter. This video is a great demonstration of how things were done a long long time ago, and not how smart companies are embracing chance.

If you're still experiencing this nightmare send your head of IT this link; by carrier pigeon if necessary!

Allowing your employees to use social networks at work: is it bad?

Instead of banning it... what about taking advantage of that social DNA that employees have acquired at a personal level and use it for professional purposes?

Can it be that a lot of complexity and problems in collaboration in collectives arises out of the clash of tacitly held mental models?

What could be the value of surfacing and clarifying the varying models in people's heads so that we can arrive at some commonly held models?

While inquiring into this question, an interesting formulation presented by V. Srinivas is worth bringing to attention. He puts forth the notion of "Formal Mental Models" as a valuable way of harmonizing multiple points of view in our search for effectiveness and social contribution...

Does this seem like a way to unlock the potential of a collective?

One addition: mental models are temporal, one can be hold true longer as another.

Excellent New Blog Post by +Dan Durrant from +Cause Analytics on biases in decision making

Five biases to overcome

1. Confirmation bias
2. Hindsight bias
3. Correlation vs. Causation
4. Too Much Data
5. The Wrong “Big Question”

"Collaboration in #decisionmaking works best when the organisation's culture is both diverse and data-driven."

Hello all, http://discuto.io is now in beta and needs as much feedback as possible. Discuto is a modern decision-making platform that mimics a classic offline process: proposal->debate->decision->implementation. For those who struggle getting feedback for your documents check out the page and feel free to comment and give us all the feedback you can! ;) 
 
We launched discuto.io on 30 October at the Web Summit in Dublin, Europe’s largest tech conference. The feedback was excellent and we are working hard to continuously improve the service. 

But what is Discuto for? 
Discuto is a modern decision-making platform that mimics a classic offline process: proposal->debate->decision->implementation. 

The challenge when applying the above process is how to negotiate each step in a way that organises interaction, collaboration and creation, before leading to consensus and decision-making.

This is where Discuto offers a solution.

We have tested the Discuto approach on many occasions, finding a surprising impact on decisions made. Not only were new solutions found, but also through the discussion these were adapted to the specific situation. This led to progress in debates which had previously lasted for years. 

This is a breakthrough in large-scale decision-making processes. And there’s more...

One of the best things about Discuto is its efficiency. The set-up allows real-time document-based debates, instead of sending around track-changed Word files to multiple recipients. And this works for groups large and small, documents brief or lengthy. The larger and more active the crowd, the larger the productivity gains. 

The advantages
A great number of people can be involved, sharing knowledge and reaching consensus, via a simple and straightforward process: 

You prepare your proposals, strategies, suggestions, etc. in a document and then upload it to the Discuto platform. 
This is debated by your chosen participants (or by the general public if it’s an open debate). Any controversial issues are highlighted, and voted/commented on. 
You read, respond and re-adjust your document, keeping an eye on the consensus meter. If it’s in the red, there isn’t consensus. 
You continue to follow the process until you reach a satisfactory conclusion. Then it’s time to download the paper, with or without showing the edits made, and implement whatever you have collectively decided on. 
Insert picture of consensus meter
Implementation is probably the most important result of using Discuto; along with decision-making and getting things done. The debate is a necessary and important element, enabling you to find the best solutions while using the knowledge and expertise of the participants.   

What kind of tasks, documents and decisions can Discuto be used for?
These can be very diverse, ranging from major decisions with far-reaching consequences, to routine coordination tasks and document reviews. 

The best way to see if it works for you is to try it!

Don´t hesitate, upload your document and start inviting your community today.

Collaboration has its roots within hierarchy. Cooperation is fundamental to networks.

"Collaboration isn’t a technology, it’s a behaviour. And implementing one doesn’t automatically make the other happen."

As much as I abhor the idea of owning a monopoly on an idea. Patents still do just what the name suggests, which is take what is latent and make it patent (i.e. known). So, some day (barring an immediate license of course) someone else can take this idea, with its processes now laid bare for the world to see, and build upon it.
