I recently met up with four freelancers at my first co-working breakfast.
From HR, L&D, the arts and education backgrounds, we introduced ourselves and got straight down to talk. Multi tasking whilst sending caffeine through our chilled bodies we working onour own and yet together. The chat centred round systems and processes and how workplace hierarchies and management affect organisation outcomes. Social learning and visibly shared thinking seemed to be the indicator of importance to each of our industries. To what extent did this and collaboration take place? Were desired outcomes instigated and produced by input from all or from leadership only? After photos, tweeting, new followers and the excitement that comes from hearing new perspectives over good coffee, we ventured out into the Melbourne winter, richer and wiser, ready to head back into our own domains.
