The Perfect Collaboration Tool

The Perfect Collaboration Tool

Team members not only can be clueless on what to collaborate on but also often lack resources to connect and collaborate with others.

Whether the team’s are spread far and wide or knit close geographically, using technology can be an effective method to enable this collaboration.

Features to look for in a collaboration tool:

1- Conversation enabler across functions & geographies

2- Knowledge-sharing in real-time

3- Gamification for Employee Engagement

4- Archives with easy-to-search functionality

5- Organisational-mood tracking

6- Analytics to gauge performance

If you’re looking for such a Collaboration Tool, write to us for a demo of KoSolve. Email us at– support@kosolve.com or contact@collaborativeclimate.com

Match’em like Lego?

Match'em Like Lego

If only it were as easy as Lego Blocks to just instantly know each team-member and match them up for tasks and projects!

Here are some steps for leaders:

1.Create a template where each team-member can pin-up their knowledge, skills and passion (something that they are really excited to pursue or develop in themselves).

2.Ask them to fill it and have a one-to-one discussion with them to understand more and fill in your remarks on the side.

3.Feel free to share this with everybody within the team so that they understand each other more.

4.Keep a (fun) periodic review of this and do refer to this in meetings or when assigning tasks/projects.

Free-willed Collaboration

Free-willed Collaboration.png

Collaboration requires free-will of attempts and task-completion. Independence, Innovation and Free Thinking can’t breed in constricted regimes and routines. Such regimes can not only add stress but also self-doubt making team-work ineffective.

This is how leaders can have Collaboration going without constricting regimes.

Get to know your members and help them focus on their brighter side, show faith and patience in that.

Let all team-members appreciate and monitor each other’s strengths over set periods of time.

Build a community of problem resolution and solution finding for tasks and projects.

Create opportunities for a win-win for all through different Rewards & Recognition programs.

How to use Technology?

How to use Technology

Technology has facilitated communication and even collaboration to some extent. Filling yours and your team’s work-space with communication/collaboration tools is not enough; the purpose may be lost!

Here are some of the tips for leaders to maximise communication/collaboration from the online tools with team-members:

— Define your reasons and opportunities, know why you need such tools.

— Hunt & select the tool(s) that best fit yours and yours team-member’s needs & comfort.

— Adoption of technology can be difficult at start, so give it time and efforts.

Workplace Annoyance

Workplace Annoyance

Annoying, Irritating, Disturbing, Displeasing, Bothering – some of the terms we use to describe some of the co-workers we don’t like.

For coffee-table gossip, this may seem like a light-hearted conversation but  it can have a cascading effect on overall morale and culture at work.

Some steps for leaders to correct this phenomena:

— Create once a month/fortnightly forums for your team-members to let go off the steam collectively. Let them vent and listen in a safe space.

— Guide them to be careful with their thoughts and words.

— Help them see each other’s perspectives and give time to cool down.

— If a member is too stubborn, discuss separately.

Do they listen during meetings?

Do they listen during meetings

Through our surveys and experiences, we have learnt that poor meetings at work are a common-place. There are many factors that make a poor meeting so, and one of the highest rated factors is when ‘members are more interesting in talking than listening to understand.’

Some tips for Leaders to facilitate sound listening skills during meetings:

-Encourage reflection on each other’s point.

-Collectively highlight the positives of points instead of dismissing them on face-value.

-Write down the common vision and task on a board or slide where everybody can see and remind self about the end-goal & largely talk about that only.

Holding Grudges & Grievances?

Holding Grudges & Grievances

Long-lasting Grudges and Grievances at work are such a common-place.

The waves they create can have torrential impact on future of organisation & the professional(s) who hold them.

3C Step-Approach is one of our suggested Models for Leaders to handle this:

  1. Create a regular Schedule to formally dedicate time and efforts to handle them.
  2. Categorize to filter and to know the types of Grudges/Grievances members carry.
  3. Call for collective solution(s) to acknowledge and bring focus towards future.

A Collective Mission

A Collective Mission

Mission statements are directly proportionate to the vision of the organisation, and thus individual divisions and teams. While defining vision is mostly a singular effort, mission statements can be a collective one.

It’s important that the people who are on the mission are able to relate to each statement and feel the drive to execute them!

When building Mission Statements, a leader must:

— Engage the core team-members in drafting (not copy-pasting from competitors). These team-members must also be great influencers and should know the pulse of the organisation and other members.

— Be open to creating multiple drafts before finalising. No harm in reconsidering the Mission when it must equate with the Strategy.

Outcasts at Work

Outcasts at Work

An Outcast at work is the member who tends to stay aloof and can even be non-participative in team discussions/activities. Reasons: Social Anxiety, Innovative Streak, Distasteful Team Experience, Lack of Communication Skills or more.

A leader can easily handle this behaviour by following these steps:

1.Have a dialogue to understand his/her reasons.

2.Create a safe environment to express the reasons.

3.Establish yourself as a confidante and mentor.

4.Acknowledge the emotions.

5.Explain the implications of this behaviour.

6.Build a Plan of Action to overcome this.

7.Provide constant support and follow-up.
