Teamwork & Collaboration Online 18-Feb-2021 - Speaker's Notes

  1. 1. Teamwork & Collaboration Online 18-Feb-2021 Is One Life Enough James G Neville (Sitearm) Teamwork & Collaboration Online jn: 18-feb-2021 Development One LLC 00 ladies and gentlemen good day and welcome to this presentation on “teamwork and collaboration online” sponsored by technological university dublin my online avatar is sitearm and my offline avatar is james g neville and I am a specialist in online presence
  2. 2. Teamwork and Collaboration Online This presentation will give examples of multidimensional thinking in teamwork and collaboration online. Basics . team operations - an input output model . commitment and competence - your stake . team roles - your group’s stake . dialogue - how you and your group communicate . journey - how you and your group evolve Discussion Extensions - intentionality and persona - social brain and social media Demonstration Teamwork & Collaboration Online jn: 18-feb-2021 Development One LLC 01 our menu for today is a few minutes of basic material, followed by discussion, followed by a few more minutes of extended material, and concluded with a live group demonstration in today's presentation I hope to reinforce a few things you may already know about teamwork and collaboration online and to introduce a few things you may not already know and for us all to have fun and learn something together as we go along
  3. 3. Teamwork & Collaboration Online jn: 18-feb-2021 Development One LLC 02 please direct your attention to the slide labeled “team operations model” from an analytical point of view a team may be considered as a box with input output arrows the input arrow on the left represents the members of the team the output arrow on the right represents the results of the team, its project the arrow coming down from the top is the constraints on the team such as their assignment and the arrow coming in from the bottom is the things that support the team in getting their job done my job here today is to be one of those support arrows coming in from the bottom please direct your attention to the slide labeled “effective teams have effective members” each of you bring an individual investment to the team “box” based on 1) what you already know how to do, and 2) whether you are willing to do it these are your competence and your commitment and, together, they make your net contribution to the team
  4. 4. high competence and high commitment make a high contribution low competence and low commitment make a low contribution if either factor is medium the net contribution is medium most of the time, one or the other is going to be medium because of practical constraints the question is, what do you know how to do, and are you willing to do it please direct your attention to the slide labeled “effective teams share roles” your team brings a group investment to project success based on how well your members cover nine team skills these include auditing, diplomacy, implementation, leadership, networking, planning, quality control, and specialist knowledge higher coverage makes for higher success lower coverage makes for lower success most of the time, one or more roles are not covered by team member competencies going in the question is, what don’t you know how to do, and are you willing to learn how to do it
  5. 5. Extend Generate Listen Act Advance Choose Fluency in All Stages Effective Teams Evolve Teamwork & Collaboration Online jn: 18-feb-2021 Development One LLC 03 please direct your attention to the slide labeled “effective teams use best practices” this is how you and your group communicate “brainstorming” is a divergent / expanding exercise where new ideas are generated “deciding” is a convergent / narrowing exercise where choices are made and action steps commence “briefing” is a narrowing exercise where agendas and ground rules are stated before an event begins “debriefing” is an expanding exercise where members reflect on what just happened throughout a project your team will cycle between divergent and convergent communication the question is, which mode are you in at the moment, and when is it time to switch please direct your attention to the slide labeled “effective teams develop in stages” “forming” is where you learn each other’s names and how to get in touch with each
  6. 6. other “storming” is where you argue with each other about how to do stuff “norming” is where you get used to each other and agree on a plan “performing” is where you crank out results throughout a project your team will cycle back and forth within these stages for example, learning new things about each other, adjusting to changes in circumstances, adapting, improvising, and adjusting even up to the last minute please direct your attention to the slide labeled “effective teams evolve” right now you are in a team project called “is one life enough module” when this team project is over you will certainly go on to another team project you are always in a team somewhere - your home, family, classes, school, work... each time you participate in a team you experience a growth cycle - “listening” to what is being asked, “choosing” how to participate, then “acting, advancing, and extending” the question is, what are you willing to learn how to do next
  7. 7. Teamwork & Collaboration Online jn: 18-feb-2021 Development One LLC 04 very distant 1500 distant 150 close 50 very close 5 There are well-defined limits to the number of friends and acquaintances the average person can retain. Social Brain Social Media We have more than one persona because we have multiple audiences to deal with, and multiple purposes in dealing with them. Persona Peter knows that Jane believes that Mark thinks that Paula wants Jake to suppose that Amelia intends to do something.’ Intentionality please direct your attention to the slide labeled “intentionality” intentionality is predicting how other people will think, feel, and behave based on how we ourselves would operate we do this using identity emulations running in our brains we are capable of running six deep although four is the norm for example, in the movie “Star Wars,” how did Darth Vader feel about Luke Skywalker finding out that Princess Leia was Luke’s sister? you thinking about Darth thinking about Luke is two layers of intentionality deep and how did Han Solo feel about how Emperor Palpatine felt about how Darth Vader felt about all that? that’s four layers now please direct your attention to the slide labeled “persona” “persona” is how we present ourselves to others the word comes from the greek word for mask
  8. 8. we have more than one persona, tailored to our motivations, to the motivations we attribute to others, and to how we predict they will react to us typical personas include “at home alone” (your inner self), “at work” (your formal self), “with friends” (informal), “with strangers” (cautious), “with children” (open), “with elders (respectful)” at all times and in all places, offline and online, your communication with others is through some persona the question is, what persona are you using at the moment, and when is it appropriate to change or update it please direct your attention to the slide labeled “social brain” the identity emulations we run in our brains are constrained by cognitive limits for detailed emulations our limit is 5 “close” connections - think of parents, children, loved ones for bare-bones emulations our limit is 1500 “distant connections” - think of people you know who don’t know you for moderate-demand emulations our limit is 150 “meaningful” connections - think of people you frequently see and interact with we make decisions every day about where and with whom we invest our time for social interaction and the people in our lives cycle in and out of these categories as our decisions and circumstances change please direct your attention to the slide labeled “social media” with brains constrained to recognize 1500 people max, how do we deal with a city of 1 million, like Dublin, or a world of 8 billion, like Earth perhaps we can leverage our meaningful contacts if we each have 150, and each of those has 150, and each of those has 150… how deep do we have to go to reach a million, or a billion?
  9. 9. the reach of social media was estimated at 3 billion in 2020 Justin Bieber and PewDiePie had a hundred million followers apiece on Instagram and YouTube so perhaps we can indeed leverage our 150
