Don’t Talk. Or, Listen to Improve Communications.

Don’t Talk. Or, Listen to Improve Communications.

One day more than 30 years ago, John Francis stopped talking. And a funny thing happened next. As he says it, “I started listening. For the first time in a long time.” Walk the earth … my 17-year vow of silence Quiet Quiet was the theme of the Ted Radio Hour episode I listened today. It really struck me how important quiet is to communications. How can you listen if you can’t hear? John Francis took it to the extreme.

Social Intranet Resources Needed

Social Intranet Resources Needed

Search google or Amazon for the words “social intranet” and you won’t find a lot of great resources. Why is that? I started a conversation on twitter today asking a similar question and was lucky to have a number of very experienced intranet developers respond. Who Cares? When I do a search for “social intranet” on the Jive Community, I see a totally different picture. Consulting companies¬†are talking about it: Making Good on the Social Intranet Promise, by Wes Goldstein,

A Look at 1 year of Community.Nintex.com

A Look at 1 year of Community.Nintex.com

I’ve been a fan of Nintex, as a company, for quite a while. I know they’ve got smart people like Mike Fitzmaurice working there. I’ve recommended their solutions for workflows and forms to many of my consulting customers over the years. At Rackspace, I even wrote a blogpost highlighting a neat Cloud Computing workflow in Office 365. And, for the past year, I’ve watched and participated in the new Nintex Community site powered by Jive Software. Happy First Anniversary! Nintex

Web Communication – It Gets Better

Web Communication – It Gets Better

The quality of communication is important. Quantity is also important. Both effect your team’s productivity in different ways. Over the years, the tools available have dramatically increased our ability to communicate effectively. And, improvements are still being made. Quality versus Quantity A friend at a conference said to me, “[Our activity stream platform] at work is great! I ask a question and get all kinds of responses in the same day.” I replied, “That’s great! Finding answers at work can

A Great SharePoint Fest Experience

A Great SharePoint Fest Experience

SharePoint Fest Denver 2014 Last week was the 5th annual SharePoint Fest Denver. My first SharePoint Fest was SharePoint Fest NYC in June. Both were great events. The feedback I received from attendees of all 4 sessions at both shows was great and I’m looking forward to presenting at a third SharePoint Fest in Chicago in December. If you haven’t attended a SharePoint Fest in your city when it comes through, I encourage you to try one. There were many

Why Jive?

Why Jive?

Jive is the most compelling web software I’ve come across. Maybe I should just stop there. I’ve been meaning to write a post to answer why I have chosen Jive Software for awhile. I’ve started the post in my head hundreds of times but never written it. Since joining Jive last year, I’ve gotten the question many times and answered in many different ways. Committing it to the written word was too permanent for something that was ever changing in
