There's no point in knowledge if you don't share it: collaboration and generosity in the social age

There's no point in knowledge if you don't share it: collaboration and generosity in the social age | Beyond KM | Scoop.it

"What’s the point in knowledge if you don’t share it? 


Collaboration and generosity are what drive innovation and engagement and yet organisations are often obsessed with hiding things away, with tucking their stories out of sight behind paywalls and firewalls, behind layers of impersonal websites and corporate comms that lack content and impact. We sit courses on ‘data protection‘ and ‘data security‘, but never on ‘generosity‘ and ‘collaboration‘."

This has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process. "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony.

Leadership is about connecting and collaborating. The number 1 slill identified by IBM's Global 2013 CEO study is collaboration. It is also one of the top five comoetencies for CPAs in the future from the CPA Horizons 2025 report. Sharing knowledge has been my experience with social media as a tool for sharing and collaboration. It has created that "serendipitous insight' that allows me to connect the dots more easily and make great friends in the process.                                                                                                      I like this quote in the article, "As we share our knowledge more openly with each other, our world becomes more connected, which can lead to greater recognition of our diversity and our common humanity – ultimately leading to greater understanding, and hopefully a world of greater harmony."

We need to continue to develop effective ways to share knowledge.
