We liked this ..The secret to team collaboration: Individualism article.
It echos the thought that collaboration isn’t just about collectivism. Consensus isn’t about Groupthink and that Team are still made up of individuals.
It’s part of the reason why GroupMap makes things just a little more awesome. It allows individuals to create their own maps, have space to think and form their own opinions, critically analysing the ideas from others. GroupMap then aggregates all that information into a collective form for voting and prioritising for action.
Allowing each individual in the group to express their thoughts, form their opinion and then discover the common ground is the foundation block to building towards a collaborative state. The alternative feels like “well, if no one is listening to me, then why should I bother listening to them.”
It makes you realise that in any room, the 3 most important views are yours, mine and ours!
