Work faster. Work smarter. Work harder. Work more. These things are no longer the answer.
Work has fundamentally changed, especially for knowledge workers, and the answer lies in working differently. Collaboration in the workplace is key.
Are you the kind of person who needs some data? Employees working for companies with effective internal and external collaboration initiatives are about 22% more likely to believe that their employer cares about their morale, thus making collaborative employees more loyal to their organizations than their peers. And companies that promote collaborative working environments are 5x more likely to be high performers than companies with fewer employee collaboration initiatives. Data is power! Information is power!
Collaboration is the new competition. That’s why it’s the title of CEO and Little Bird Momma, Priscilla McKinney’s forthcoming book. In this podcast episode, Priscilla chats with LBM Executive VP, Ashley Le Blanc, about elements of the collaboration process and what you can do to hone your collaboration skills.
You may have heard a thousand and one mental health professionals, yoga teachers, spiritual gurus and gangsters alike harp on the benefits of gratitude. They’re on to something, folks. It’s not Kool-Aid.
The mindset shift of gratitude leads us toward offering shout-outs to the people who have helped us along the way. We all know that we didn’t get to where we are today alone. Shoutouts sets the ball rolling in the collaboration process. Go from the ABC to the ABH. Turn that ABC of sales phrase, “Always Be Closing,” and morph it into ABH - Always Be Helping. Shifting your mindset from "what is best for the company" to "what is best for the client" or "what is best for the industry," shines a new light on the value of collaboration.
Ah, there’s so much more to share! Collaboration in the workplace is our jam. Strawberry, blueberry, apricot, you name it. The collaboration process is what we’re all about here at Little Bird Marketing. So flit on over to the podcast and spread the juicy jam of collaboration all over your warm buttered toast. Did we take that metaphor too far? Or just far enough?
