Collaborative working and the benefits it brings

Collaborative working and the benefits it brings | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

From winning sports teams to globally successful businesses, there are so many examples of how collaboration in teams can produce incredible results. Building and developing a collaborative culture within your team is key to improving the share of knowledge throughout your business, which will ultimately lead to a more efficient working environment. Whilst many people like the idea of working in a collaborative environment, they aren’t always willing to undertake the investment required to establish a fully collaborative workforce. 

As the working world becomes increasingly global, and teams are split across different geographies and time zones, the need for collaboration has never been so important. With new technologies and cloud-based systems offering teams the ability to communicate information and share knowledge, businesses should utilise the opportunities available to improve the collaboration amongst their teams.

Meetings bloody Meetings.... 

Stan Smith's curator insight, June 10, 2015 2:16 AM

I had a commander in the military that used an ordinary kitchen timer. After 30 minutes he threw it in his briefcase and walked out the door. You'd be amazed at how effective that was in terms of time management.

The myth of the brainstorming session: The best ideas don’t always come from meetings

The myth of the brainstorming session: The best ideas don’t always come from meetings | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

From my experience working at an agency, as a designer, and at ooomf, coming up with ideas from a single brainstorming session like this one is usually not the most effective way. Many people I’ve come across, including the most creative ones, need individual time to let ideas marinate before the best concept reveals itself (even if it’s something that seems as simple as naming a website).

Is “Psychological Danger” killing your team’s performance?

Is “Psychological Danger” killing your team’s performance? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
Cornell professor Kathleen O’Connor, who coaches teams on effective collaboration, says that when psychological safety is absent from the workplace, teams lose the individual knowledge and expertise each member brings to the table and begin to experience what is known as the Common Knowledge Effect.

When this effect is at play, says O’Connor, “teams tend to focus on shared information”, and as a result they have “trouble capitalizing on the diversity of knowledge and expertise in the team”. The very same knowledge and expertise those people were recruited for to begin with. This often leads to poor performance, poor decision-making and missed opportunities for innovation.

This is important in schools where there is too much management and not enough leading. There is too much team and coaching and not enough community and living.

How Blended Learning Has Changed

How Blended Learning Has Changed | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

“Blended learning takes advantage of the power of technology to deliver training “just in time,” anywhere and anytime. However, in blended learning, technology (and in particular, online education) is not used as an isolated tool, but as a key part of a comprehensive workplace performance solution. Online education, therefore, is not considered the only means to educate, but it should be considered an adjunct to the overall education process.” Evolution of Blended Learning.


Actually giving learners the power to decide where, when and how they’ll learn is the ultimate example of Blended Learning — rather than trying to control what happens when. 

 

This is sometimes a difficult idea for teachers to take on — the siren song of control is a sweet one, and giving it up causes a messy and chaotic environment.  But once you’ve experienced seeing students take responsibility for their own learning it’s a powerful idea.
