Why do we regularly torture ourselves with endless email trees that are branched off, creating 14 separate discussions and CC: everyone and their dog? It drives us mad yet we find ourselves being sucked these holes each week. We contort ourselves to fit this time-wasting model of communication and despise it every time it happens.
We can end the madness by using collaborative technologies and work in a way that works for us, not us for it. We can save time, confusion and frustration.
Those of us who have been using collaborative technologies understand this. But it is not an easy concept to teach other in a way that it has a lasting effect – so they change the way they work. The real challenge is how do we explain this to other people?
I hope this video helps you explain how we can work so much better and really upgrade the way we work.
As I was making this video I thought of other business practices that I wish would die. Do you have ideas, too? If so, let me know in the comments and I will put them in my bucket list of videos to make in the near future. Thanks!
