It’s Time to Ditch the Work Silos‚ÄĒfor Real

My latest for LinkedIn Pulse uses Daniel Pink’s “Motivation 3.0” (autonomy, mastery and purpose) to promote collaboration. Diversifying can move you toward a more collaborative and service-oriented approach to engagement.

At TechSoup, I led a team of experts to position the forum as a global resource for nonprofits, as well as a content partner for Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco and Box. The spirit of collaboration was baked into everything we did. Published via LinkedIn on Nov 2, 2017.

Chris has a very positive, can-do attitude, learns very quickly and does excellent work. I would recommend Chris highly and without reservation for a research position.

I was impressed with his organizational skills and with how he approached and solved problems. His questions were quite frequently difficult to answer and required several advanced degree people to resolve them. In addition to his problem solving ability, Chris is very pleasant to work with. He is willing to do any task that advances the work, and does so happily and efficiently. Chris is an outstanding employee… an asset to any workplace. If I were in a position to hire him, I absolutely would.

Chris reported to me as forum community manager, working directly with myself and others across the engagement team to position the forums as a resource for the organization.

Chris demonstrated excellent people skills, managing our forum moderators, all of whom are experts in their fields. Chris worked directly with forum moderators in the discovery process, soliciting feedback on how to better engage and include users in our engagement strategies. Chris demonstrated flexibility with frequently-shifting priorities, jumping between tasks and mindsets as needed to keep projects moving. Chris co-developed a business case analysis for forums integration with a new community technology platform, an analysis which considered expert content streams, innovative crowdsourcing techniques, and cross-sector partnerships. Chris also contributed content and is an excellent editor and documentarian.

Chris clearly has a passion in working for organizations using technology for social good. I would recommend Chris for a community, social or content position.
