Collaborating in practice
1 February 2023
Dr. Moria Levy
Today, in the Knowledge Management Global Network course "The new collaboration", actual collaboration was practiced.
This session demonstrated the difference between joint work and collaboration.
- Only sometimes, everyone joins at the same time. Building trust in real life is challenging as not everyone is in the same relative state.
- Even if everyone speaks the same language, not everyone shares the same native mother language and the same culture code; again challenging.
- Some people feel less comfortable speaking with others they do not meet regularly.
For these reasons, and not only, collaboration always takes more time than estimated (also experienced today...)
So be patient with collaboration. At the end of the day, it enables us to systematically synergize, achieving better and faster objectives with a giant smile on our faces.
