NICE Initiative White Paper 6: Collaboration

Published on

The future of work is not just a buzzword, a hashtag, or a concept relevant to disruptive innovation in the education or geopolitical arenas. The nature of the workplace and the psychological and intellectual makeup of its workforce will undergo real changes in the coming years. It is therefore time to rethink best practices and both the process and the blueprint which showcase them. Outdated business models and mindsets are actually hindering corporate teams in terms of productivity, efficiency, and relevance. Machine learning is rendering many products and services obsolete. The sharing economy is recruiting and championing people who excel at collaboration and communication; two “soft skills” not traditionally taught in school classrooms, but certainly on school playgrounds.
Due to the changing business landscape, the rules of engagement and points of entry need to be reassessed. The politics of the “playground” are increasingly complex and need to be redefined for global impact and better outcomes. The art and architecture of collaboration needs to be understood and mastered. The NICE Initiative can help.

NICE Initiative White Paper 6: Collaboration

  1. 1. NICE Initiative for Female Entrepreneurship: White Paper 6 By Penina Rybak MA/CCC-SLP, TSHH Founder/CEO Socially Speaking LLC Founder: The NICE Initiative The Art and Architecture of Collaboration: A Framework Challenge: The future of work is not just a buzzword, a hashtag, or a concept relevant to disruptive innovation in the education or geopolitical arenas. The nature of the workplace and the psychological and intellectual makeup of its workforce will undergo real changes in the coming years due to the: •  Increase of women in the workforce, including management and CEO positions •  Hiring of different generations working together; some for the first time • Convergence of the Technology and Entrepreneurial Revolutions sweeping the globe It is therefore time to rethink best practices and both the process and the blueprint which showcase them. Outdated business models and mindsets are actually hindering corporate teams in terms of productivity, efficiency, and relevance. Machine learning is rendering many products and services obsolete. The sharing economy is recruiting and championing people who excel at collaboration and communication; two “soft skills” not traditionally taught in school classrooms, but certainly on school playgrounds. Due to the changing business landscape, the rules of engagement and points of entry need to be reassessed. The politics of the “playground” are increasingly complex and need to be redefined for global impact and better outcomes. The art and architecture of collaboration needs to be understood and mastered. The NICE Initiative can help. Thought Leadership: What can we do to work smarter, not harder? Why do we need to methodically connect the “dots” between achievement and mastery of the goals we set for ourselves? When does teamwork actually facilitate innovation and leadership? Where do we channel our resources? Who needs to work together? How do people actually work together to promote real change? The catalyst for lasting, widespread change that sustains innovation is education. It’s what spurs the competitive, solitary, sometimes grueling nature of work. It’s what gives communication its wings to be free, and be more in touch with humanity. It’s what imbues the DNA of any endeavor, and what nurtures its creative transformation. The architecture of collaboration begins with practically determining starting points for © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved
  2. 2. remediation of a problem. This is accomplished by implementing a 5 step problem solving hierarchy which seeks to proactively leverage “group think” while targeting the individual i.e. different people’s skills sets and social intelligence to complete tasks. The architecture of collaboration is approached from a project management perspective. The artistry of collaboration is approached from a talent management perspective. Together, both can harness the true power of balancing technology with humanity to create synergy, more effective workflows, and resource allocation and management. This results in the collective inculcating of a unique mindset which fosters leadership, prevention and recovery, and ultimately change.   Recommendations: It’s time to reconsider our blueprint and craft a new one. It’s time to update best practices which align with the people and the planet, not just forecasted revenue. To create a self sustaining legacy and business model for the sharing economy, we need to reconfigure our trajectory and the steps along the way. We can help teams develop strategies to sustain a competitive advantage with regard to networking, customer retention, and profit margins. These strategies are taught within this framework: NICE Initiative Framework for Collaboration: 1. Education • Goals • Strategy 2. Talent Management • Personal Branding • Bridging  • Networking 3. Mentorship • Mentorship • Reverse Mentorship 4. Quality Control (Troubleshooting) • Communication • Active Process • Prevention (Instead of Crisis Intervention) ☞ Research ☞ Backup & Recovery © 2015 Penina Pearl Rybak, Socially Speaking LLC, All Rights Reserved
