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

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.

Collaborative Tech

Collaborative Tech

It is still widely held that technology is largely responsible for creating the Silo Mindset.

Yes, it’s true that team-members tend to shy away from responsibilities and confrontations. But is also true that it’s led to mass development too!

Technology is still originally used to get work done or just connect, not really collaborate people. Here are some ways to use tech:

  • Create platforms to toss Tacit Knowledge
  • Construct ‘Appreciation Forums’
  • Try to handle Escalations in person
  • Promote Video over Voice Calls
