I track discussions on a Linked-In group for followers of TED.
TED is where some really talented subject experts gather and talk on a topic for 20 minutes.
Someone posted the topic – Do you believe in God? Atheists and Believers collide! It’s difficult to win this argument and take action.
Only work with people you align with and get moving. Take action. Avoid life-sucking, philosophical dances that wears people out.
Personally, this is the challenge I have with developing a “book of knowledge” around collaboration. People want to debate about choices of words, etc… My response to that is focusing on collaboration implementation and taking action.
