DEFINITION: Collaborative Awareness
kəˈlabərətiv əˈwe(ə)rnis noun
Two or more entities working in concert to create a continuous and nearly instant feedback loop of group knowledge, adaptability and growth.
In every relationship there are at least 3 Entities: You, Me and We.
Optimal collaboration continually occurs when the knowledge and awareness of the We Entity, and how it is custom designed and developed, is simultaneously taken into consideration at the same level as each individual.
There is no one-size-fits-all because every We Entity is made up of different individuals, circumstances and timing. This is why a continuous and nearly instant feedback loop is critical to the on-going health of the collaboration.
Mindfully building and employing the neural networks that have evolved to keep us connected, takes us from groups of people working together, to a Collaboratively Aware We Entity that thrives and adapts in any given situation.
