We are living in a world where location no longer matters
Technology allows us to connect talents, leads, channels, resources no matter where they are.
But connectivity doesn’t mean we are ready to collaborate worldwide
It is the matter of BUILDING TRUST with someone you have never met
Could you trust someone without looking into his/her eyes?
Yes, I could trust him because he is a good friend of my friend and/or my friend recommend him to me Yes, I could trust her because he belongs to the same coworking community Yes, I could trust him because he contributes a lot to his community, and has a very good reputation
So this Trust is built on: +Friend’s Recommendation +Sense of Belonging +Good Reputation
We need to build a coworksphere to connect and build trust among the coworkers
