OUR SERVICES – SOCIAL BUSINESS COLLABORATION
Setting up for collaboration by building authentic, trusting social relationships between people
Social Collaboration is at the heart of a highly engaging, innovative, safe and rewarding social business and work experience. But Social is not about the new digital technologies it is about people connecting together to share information, listen to stories, create together and disrupt, change and remake our world for social good. This requires a Social Business to build high trust, authentic and personal relationships between members where individuals get be who they are.
Taking the Time to Build Authentic Relationships from Who We Are
At the heart of social collaboration is conversation between people and people are different.
Different people have different beliefs about how they see the world and about what is important; for example half the population is naturally wired around relationships and the other half around results. Some people connect to stories whilst others to statistics. Some people are wired around innovation, yet others want to keep using what they know; these are the continuous improvers; not the innovators. Some people want open and frank dialogue; yet others want diplomacy and tact and don’t want to speak up. Some people have a need to take risks, others are safety first.
All these differences are important in how people will respond to a call for collaboration or the use of open sharing platforms. Gallup research shows that the happiest, most engaged people are working to their natural strengths for most of the time and work for leaders who take the time to build social trust between people by appreciating and aligning the differences in individuals.
You can’t just expect people to collaborate because you buy some digital software or set a social strategy. Collaboration is about taking the time to build trusting, collaborative personal and authentic relationships to take the social journey together and a code of social behaviours to live by
Social business leaders understand this and they take the time to identify and align individual strengths to develop great communication on the social journey.
