On The Smarter Office blog, I asked earlier this week How Do You Collaborate Best?:
“There are many ways of collaborating — working with other people towards a common outcome. Collaboration enjoys a broad definition, and thus can support many styles. Being gregarious, loud, and larger-than-life may be perceived as the dominant ideal, but that’s far from the reality. Your preference for collaborating with others can vary on many dimensions, such as:
– Voice or Text.
– Face-to-Face or Remote.
– Small group or Large group.
– Known group or Anonymous group.
– Create or Respond.“
I know it’s very broad-brushed, and that the associated survey (please take two minutes to fill it out) is binary on each dimension, and that collaboration preferences have lots of nuance … but do you have a preference for a collaboration style? (by preference, I mean what you would prefer to do most of the time).
