TRIPLE III TIME: Organizational “SHARING” Training?!
I am sure that if I offered a quiz on organizational professional development training, everyone would be able to contribute at least one example. Probably included in the list would be:
- Customer Service

- Team Building
- Computer 101/202 (and on and on!)
- Promotion & The Media

But as you can guess and in support of my Inspiring Innovation company title…I believe it is time to consider a new staff training opportunity
Let me try to explain my basic ideas for training in the area of Organizational SHARING.
The goal of an Organizational SHARING workshop/class would be to identify and discuss the unique principles that would be involved in progressively SHARING: Staff, Funding, Services, Products, Facilities and Performance Outcomes. Included in the discussions would be the challenges of facilitating effective Organizational SHARING that are felt both inside and outside of businesses, agencies, schools and governments. Partnering and collaboration are key sharing words in most strategic plans and mission statements. But remember, think real hard…do we just assume everyone knows the principles and processes and possibilities that come via Organizational SHARING?
Bottomlines: First I believe Organizational SHARING is often quietly blended in some areas of staff training…but today it needs to be SPECIAL! Second, SHARING is difficult and requires open discussion to be employed as an Organizational priority. Finally, I will SHARE an Inspiring Innovations Concept Paper on Organizational SHARING training in a upcoming TRIPLE III TIME message…so stay tuned!
