Walking a Different Path

Michael Sampson - Currents

Colgate-Palmolive needed to refresh its collaboration tools portfolio, and unlike most of its industry peers, did not embrace Office 365. A year after the migration to Google Cloud, it looks like things are still going well – the core collaboration team is happy, and so are the users.

Walking a Different Path – Redux

Differences are real; divisiveness is a choice

Chris Corrigan

It was a timely gathering for 70 people from government, civil society, and social enterprise to come and learn how to work with differences. In Canada’s only bilingual province, language is a massive difference between people, and New Brunswick has a multitude of language cultures.

cMOOCs and xMOOCs – key differences

Jenny Connected

As xMOOCs become more successful and begin to experiment with pedagogies that go beyond the didactic video lecture approach, I have been trying to understand the essential differences between the original connectivist MOOCs such as CCK08 and the current xMOOCs such as those offered by Coursera.

Different perspectives

Viv Mcwaters

Community – organization difference

Learning Alliances

In comparison with how community and organization interact in other circumstances, it’s the churches and meditation groups depicted on the right that highlight the differences between the two regimes most clearly. These different settings have been on my mind for years.

Behaving differently

Viv Mcwaters

Behaviours can only be changed by behaving differently. This is the point of disruptive facilitation – providing opportunities for participants in a workshop to behave differently, with each other and in relationship to their work. Les Posen is a presentation guru, that’s when he’s not doing his ‘real’ work as a psychologist.

Making a difference

Viv Mcwaters

We talk of making a difference. It is these small gestures that probably make the biggest difference. Things might have gone differently. Making a difference is a post from: vivmcwaters.com.au. The drive from Jaipur to Delhi took over five hours – 270 kms.

Being, Differently

How to Save the World

So I was cautious in my ambitions: The idea was to see how I could make what I know I’m already going to be doing anyway, easier and more fun, by doing it differently in a way that would also increase my attentiveness, appreciation, playfulness and sense of wonder.

Beautifully different

Viv Mcwaters

Mitchell was talking to Manny about being different at school and the yearning to blend in. Sharing what I know, helping people build their skills and confidence, encouraging, trying different approaches, taking professional risks – these all make me who I am too. December 8 – Beautifully Different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Yikes. Today’s prompt is hard.

Same, same but different

Radical Management – A Different Kind of CEO


During the course of yesterday, my good friend, the always insightful Ana Silva was wondering, over in Twitter , and in her own blog, too!, under the heading “ The Cluetrain Manifesto on art, work and life “, about potential new books to read during the summer vacation.

A different day

Michael Sampson - Currents

It's almost 16 hours since the earthquake hit near Christchurch. We had a lot of cleaning up to do - broken glasses, fallen bookcases, bedroom furniture on the ground, a huge mess in the garage, and more. Two garage cupboards collapsed, and so Timothy (8) set to work and put one back together. He worked for at least 2 hours with the drill, and has built it much stronger than it was. There weren't enough screws to finish the second one, but that was started too.

Accentuate our differences

Chris Corrigan

” One little line stood out, something about the fact that in evolution, little differences are what provide us with evolutionary potential. Finding the pathway of best evolutionary potential requires that we introduce diversity and difference into the system.

A different way of working

Viv Mcwaters

Here’s another cool RSA animation , this time by Dan Pink about his latest book, Drive. If you don’t have time to read the book you can at least watch this 10-minute video. It explores the paradox of rewards – that when we have enough money, more money is not a motivator.

Social media for trainers: think differently!

Joitske Hulsebosch

I forgot my adaptor (really stupid of me) and felt very disorganised working on various different laptops and computers. Skype for instance looks so differently on a Windows computer. Online this works differently. The energy level is different. Online: think differently! I did a workshop last Friday on the conference ' Trends voor Trainers '. The topic was: social media as learning instrument.

What makes Facilitating With Confidence different?

Viv Mcwaters

So that’s what we focus on – each individual developing the confidence and self-awareness to step up, be present, respond in different ways to sticky moments or difficult people, to not be the centre of attention and to enable connection.

Differences of scaffolding in communities and networks

Taming the spaces

I think that we expect that our empirical cases are like communities of practice, but it may be that not all the characteristics of such community are at present and they are rather knowledge collectivities or constellations of communities of practice, and eventually the Learning Layers project can help the target groups to create a [.]. community learning layers networked scaffolding

Seeing things differently

Michelle Laurie

It helps us see traditional words and documents differently. I belong to a network of KM practioners working in development. Today a resource was shared that I am marveling at. I have tested it out with a document describing a learning network established in a community climate change adaptation initiative. I inserted all the words in the document to a website (Check out wordle ) and above is what it came up with. This is making work fun!

Different Points of View

Michelle Laurie

HSBC advocate for ‘different points of view’ and demonstrate this with identical images and different tag lines. They have a series of panels showing different objects and people. The lessons I take from them are that people are unique and see the world and things inside it differently. Indeed, there is beauty in different opinions. As I travel through airports around the world, I am struck by the advertisements of HSBC.

Similar people - different people

Net-Map Toolbox

Heterogeneity and boundary spanning between different kinds of networks lead to innovation. On the other hand… sometimes you meet people where you feel like even the basic structure of their brain must be completely different from yours. Getting to understand each other can become a tough job of explaining and misunderstanding and you feel like learning a different language altogether just to make yourself understood.

Nicholas provides a s nap shot of what it means to be refreshingly different : " 2. Hotel rooms where the air-con, wifi and lighting are easy to use. Business phone lines without convoluted menu-driven interactions. Airport security with a smile. Healthy fast-food. Shops which open on time.
