Five Essential Tips to Effectively Work from Home

Dan Pontefract

Being a mobile worker means I can work from the road, a TELUS office, hotels, the odd coffee shop … and yes even at home. Several years ago TELUS introduced a concept called Work Styles where 70 per cent of its team members will work 100 per cent of the time from home or – like me – will work from various locations, including their home. 56 per cent said that having a flexible work option would motivate them to work harder.

Luis Suarez

Plenty of people say that collaboration is not an easy task, whether face to face or whether remote, but certainly it looks like collaborating effectively online still presents a good bunch of challenges and issues, and Aliza’s article surely highlights some of the most relevant ones.

Why Do We Keep Insisting On Killing Productivity?

Luis Suarez

As you may have noticed already, the last post that I put together over here in this blog was a bit over three weeks ago, so, once again, it looks like that quiet period is now over and it’s a good time again to resume my regular blogging activities. I know that plenty of folks out there may have thought that I have given up on blogging altogether, again!, and what prohibited me from coming back to the blog and keep up with the regular schedule.

Remote Collaboration

Tony Karrer

My primary interest here are the methods and tools that allow us to work better as part of remote work teams. In other words - How do we collaborate together in remote work teams to be as effective or even more effective than a team that works down the hall?

Healthy and Productive Meetings: Free Guidestar Webinar on Feb. 12th

Beth Kanter

A lot of my work consists of sitting — working on a computer, talking on the phone, or attending meetings or conferences. I started using a Fitbit to monitor and motivate me to move, but I also sought out some ways to make walking part of work. I have learned a lot – and the results have helped me be way more productive (and drop a lot of pounds toos!). I’ll be doing a Guidestar Webinar on health and productive meetings on Feb. It’s work.”

Four Principles for the Open World by Don Tapscott #hippie2.0

Luis Suarez

More than anything else because of a single key concept that permeates throughout the TED Talk and which I have been advocating for a long while as one of the biggest advantages of making use of social technologies, whether for work or for personal use: Openness. As a network, or as a community, interacting and collaborating with one another. Still think your organisation could live by without breathing a collaborative corporate culture?

The Social Enterprise – Welcome to the Era of Intrapreneurship!

Luis Suarez

There are plenty of blog posts out there that have covered very well the topic of “ The Future of the Workplace &# and the impact of social computing in helping shape up the business world to become a whole lot more open, engaged, transparent and nimble. Check out Irving Wladawsky-Berger ‘s “ A New Style of Work “ Irving’s blog is probably one of the most refreshing, enlightening and entertaining reads you can bump into at the Internet Blogosphere.

A New Style of Work

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

About a year ago I wrote a blog on the post retirement phase of my life. Tom Foremski , a journalist blogger and friend who reports on the business and culture of innovation in Silicon Valley Watcher , wrote an interesting comment in my blog: “In some ways, I see your post-retirement life as being somewhat futuristic, in that it will be the way many people will be working in the future. In some ways, this is the way Hollywood has been working for decades.

IT & HR: Should They Merge?

Looking Back on Four Decades: My Top 40 Learning Moments

Dan Pontefract

I’m still working on being less abstruse. Having my direct reports physically around me was rule number one; that rule was thrown into the bin in favour of 100% flexible work styles. Blogging is for all, not only the loud. The more money you make, the less likely it is that you’ll actually collaborate. Moore’s Law is a farce in many organizations without IT budget to improve the work experience itself technologically.

Open Business – From Adoption into Adaptation

Luis Suarez

As I have mentioned in a recent blog post, you would remember how I have now moved into a new job role within IBM, as Lead Social Business Enabler for IBM Connections (both internal and external), where I am much more heavily involved with IBM’s knowledge workers’ own adoption efforts of social business and social technologies. Early adopters, first, second, third waves of adopters have all gone through that transformation of how they work and everything.

What I got was much more: a new understanding of my working process and insights about the role of personal projects in everyday creativity. Working Your Creative Muscle. Specific elements that worked well: It was related to (but not the same as) my everyday work. Although I was working independently, I was also participating in parallel with others. We work in a rapidly changing environment and we design for the future. An actual product or output?
