Mastering the Art of Collaboration Through Conversation

  1. Collaboration is a kind of shared understanding between two individuals or groups. A shared understanding with a common goal and a mutual benefit. Conversations, in my opinion will definitely light up when these qualities are present. The mention of the word “Context” further added fuel to my interest in going through your content. The success of the Web 2.0’s is all about the context that they add to the conversations. It is one of the most important advantage we have in using Web 2.0 technologies. Context, adds the much needed human element into the picture to get things done and how to get things done. Nice article. Best wishes.Cheers, Ramkumar

    1. Hi Ramkumar, many thanks for dropping by and for the great comments! Greatly appreciated. I really like the way you have describe collaboration with this particular quote: ‘A shared understanding with a common goal and a mutual benefit‘. Very nice! Thanks for that!

      No wonder we keep seeing and reading how collaboration fails left and right and still wonder what happened. It’s right there, lack of understanding and lack of sharing upon that common goal and mutual benefit. It’s what I also have been saying all along about making the transition from that me, me, me mindset when we collaborate, mostly via email, into we, we, we, through the extensive use of these social software tools. It’s only then when context would matter the most, but there is a road to travel first, which is what one of achieving that shared understanding, so thanks a bunch for sharing it along and for adding it into this blog entry. Way cool! 😀👍🏻
