Some of my most recent posts have centered around effectively using Social Media tools to collaborate and get work done. I’m a big believer that Collaboration is the key to success. I don’t necessarily think that means sitting around a big table talking out ideas for hours (but more on that in a future article). What I’m referring to is Social Collaboration. Finding a platform that allows you to share and collaborate anytime, from anyplace, from anywhere you may be.
If used correctly, it is a powerful tool that no business should be without. One reason that I think Social Collaboration fails is lack of social etiquette (or knowledge or proper procedures). It’s not typically the fault of the participant, they probably weren’t trained. With that said, I’ve decided to start a series of tips that will hopefully help alleviate some of this.
I have no schedule for how often I post these. As they come to me, I’ll post them up. A recent tip came out of pure frustration when I was working with a vendor. I’m sure you are all frustrated at times with the people you collaborate with, so let’s have them. I’d like to crowdsource this topic and build it up. Send me your topics, or articles or simply write you own and tag it SCT.
