Why Social? To Help Colleagues Work Together Much More Effectively

  1. tag: Hippie 2.0 😉

    People *are* the business. ¡Por supuesto! If there were any place we could still use our hammers, it would be to drive home this point.

    I must hear mention of “business needs” 2-4 times a month. Oy vey. The business is people. The dichotomy of business vs. customers is no different than that of us vs. them, which isn’t too far off from racism, imo.

    We are ALL customers. Why is it we need to differentiate between business and customer?

    None of us exists in a vacuum. Those organizations which put people above all other metrics stand to dominate in the future. They will see the greatest market share, the most repeat business, and be powered by the most dynamic individuals.

    1. Amen to that sentiment, brother! Thanks a bunch, Brian, for sharing those thoughts and that feedback! I really like your commentary, with which I am 100% in agreement about business vs. customers, when it should be business AND customers; all part of an ecosystem with equal weight and relevance into the conversation nurturing each other’s interactions. I do hope that social networking tools would eventually help us democratise such interactions in a manner where we can move in the modus operandi of doing business where we consider all of us part of that healthy ecosystem of wanting to make a difference helping each other; for sure #hippie20 and wouldn’t have it any other way.

      We just have to see where we are following other models that clearly haven’t worked out just right or the way they were envisioned, perhaps because we used the wrong approach and focus in the first place 🙂

      Thanks, as always, for the feedback!
