Podcast: Collaborative Minds
A unique platform for trust building and complex problem solving
Jim McGee, David Friedman & Rachel Kaberon
Working with people you’ve never “met?” Wondering how long it will take to “get to know them?” Trust them?
Each group needs to establish an environment of trust. How then do we establish and leverage trust to achieve growth in a faster, better, cheaper world?
Simon Sinek has identified the distinct advantage of leveraging the power of what we can do together. Collaborative Minds uses technology to support these relationships. Join a conversation with David, Jim and Rachel about building the kind of trust necessary to collaborate in a virtual world.

Solving problems at the intersection of technology and organization
For over 30 years, I've helped executives and organizations become more effective by making better use of information and communications technology. I've attacked these problems as an entrepreneur, senior executive, professor, author, blogger, speaker, systems developer, designer, and consultant. Today, I work with senior executives in organizations to formulate, structure, and solve problems in the effective use of information technology in complex knowledge work settings.
I am adept at working with organizations to recognize patterns and make sense of complex situations. My clients and I then collaborate to design and build new business patterns and practices to take advantage of these situations and opportunities.
