Getting serious about collaboration
I’ve been talking about collaborating for a while – now it’s actually happening. And it’s VERY exciting. Projects underway include a fantastic (even if I say so myself!) presentation skills workshop; a book about facilitating with confidence; and yet another book on facilitating and improv. These collaborations are happening locally, in NZ and in the USA. Which has meant I’ve had to quickly decide on how best to collaborate on line. Skype chats have been great for setting things up, but now we’re down to business, and the limitation of some tools become apparent. For co-writing and editing I’m using google docs. Wish there was something like this around when I was an editor! If, like me, you have no idea how google docs works, check out this video from the CommonCraft geniuses.
