Digital skills: Inspiration – Terrific colleagues

There is nothing more inspiring than a group of people actually working together. It’s actually a rare thing, personalities have to gel, egos are put aside, the goals are to complete a task, get through the day, share stories, compliment each other’s skills, help each other. There is no room in such teams for bullies (they become the enemy), for show offs (they are teased) or freeloaders (they are pushed to do something). Teams can be together in an office, down the hall from each other, or even on the other side of the world from each other. The digital world facilitates global teams who never actually meet. The only contact they may have is email, via a forum or online conferencing. The attributes are the same, yes the technology can and often is a challenge but the great capacity of people to get the job done is still there. The big challenge with technology can be to make it work effectively. It is a pleasure to work in such an environment. We salute all those people who make it work, they are truly skilled.
