My good friend and colleague Andrew Armour invited me to talk part in a Webinar last week with Powwownow on Collaboration.

It was a fun morning in Richmond with Andrew and several of the Powwownow team including Robert Gorby, their Marketing Director who joined us on the show.

You can find a recording of the webinar on the Powwownow blog

One thing I said that seemed to resonate with Andrew and Rob was relationship before collaboration - in other words before you can effectively collaborate in an organization you need to establish good relationships first.

Those of you on the ball will recognise this is an adaption of the words of Peter Block when he says connection before content.

Their next free online event comes up on 1st May : Business Yoga -- Why Smarter Businesses Use Flexible Working.

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
