Update 3: Share
Information is the most important work material today. So the central question is: how willing are we to share our knowledge? And do we consider that more as a fiddle or as a debt? Everyone has probably ever used the following sentences or heard: "Nobody asks me" or "You would only have to ask me yes". Most people see information exchange as a liability rather than a debt. Knowledge is hoarded as if it would disappear while sharing. But sharing is the only way to multiply it.
We activate the "Share" update by just starting with it - starting to share our knowledge. We ask ourselves for whom our information might still be useful and share it actively. Of these live knowledge forums - and cooperation.
Sharing is advancing
We often think we all know the truth. All the more we are surprised, if afterwards still further information emerge, of which we did not know at all. In doing so, the complexity and bandwidth of many topics almost automatically. Even for experts is much too complex.
Therefore, the sooner we share our information and give it away, the more we get more knowledge input. Do not forget: one hand washes the other. As soon as we do others a favor, the probability grows that they do us a favor. Caution: No obligations and dependencies can be derived from the principle of reciprocity.
Update 4: Trust
Certainly, we do not behave cooperatively because we think that our counterpart does not cooperate to the same extent as we would. This is all the more true if it is not a one-time, but a repetitive situation. Each time we let ourselves be guided by our bad experiences and fears. Numerous researchers in the game theory confirm that the best strategy for the benefit of all stakeholders is to trust. That is, acting as if one knew that the other party was cooperative.
In order to use the update "give confidence", we start from the best possible behavior of our counterpart. And we are encouraged by the awareness that in the long run we can lose more by fighting than by cooperation.
Trust is not a victim strategy
Trust is by no means a victim's strategy. If our trust is misused, this must be punished. After that: immediately back to the beginning and to the trust.
This is partly difficult because we are emotional beings. Often, however, a simple conversation can already resolve misunderstandings and provide a remedy.
Cooperation - a formula for success with exemplary character
Everything sounds nice and good, BUT "In my position, that's not possible." Really? At the same time, we do not always have to cooperate, but make a conscious choice.
By deliberately activating the updates of connectedness, concentration, sharing and trust, we will often choose the path of cooperation, achieve better results and perhaps become role models that our working world and society so desperately need.
