You Don’t Exist, If You Don’t Speak Out
The sin of not speaking out
For anyone working in a team, speaking what s/he’s thinking out is not a ‘should-do’, but a ‘must-do’.
Some people make it their rule to speak out after someone started and not to be the first one.
You indeed need to be brave when speaking out first, but if everyone is waiting for someone else to start, nothing on your business will proceed.
Speaking out what you thought and felt is a great contribution to the speed and progress of your team’s business.
Globalization in teams
In a team with a common cultural background, for example, a team consists only of Japanese members, there could be a vague, unspoken “common understanding.”
In such a circumstance, your colleagues would understand you to some extent, without speaking.
However, many of the Japanese organizations, just like ISAO (Colorkrew at that time) these days, will need to work in a team consists not only of Japanese but of members all over the world.
In the teams like that, there’s less common understanding or common sense, and therefore, everyone needs to present his/her idea to conduct an active discussion to reach a consensus as a result.
Therefore, speaking out is a “must-do” thing.
No speak out, no existence.
In a global team, not speaking out means not being present.
No matter how great work you do, others will not see it unless you talk about them.
In this age, you certainly need to be speaking out and keeping your word.
Not evaluating presentation skill only
Some might have a rejection because you think “only those with presentation skills will be praised.”
If the presentation is the only thing to be evaluated, that could be true.
However, it does not tell the real value of a person.
What would you do then?
The answer is to evaluate one’s actions instead of presentations.
To evaluate business actions: Daily reports
To evaluate actions, everyone needs to make their actions clear.
Making daily-reports is an instance to do this; with them, others can evaluate the content of one’s work instead of how s/he presents it.
However, daily reports have a disadvantage.
The problem is that it’s boring to read them filled with lots of letters.
If it’s boring, no one will read them, and when the reports are not read, actions are not evaluated, as a result. It’s a vicious circle.
Goalous to make activity-sharing fun
A solution to the situation is the ISAO’s (Colorkrew at that time) service “Goalous.”
With this, you can easily share your activities via a smartphone or a PC with pictures so that others will learn about the teams’ progress without getting bored.
As everyone enjoys sharing, barriers between organizations will vanish, and collaborations will arise.
Furthermore, HR Tech in Goalous makes it easy to provide the necessary support for teams by analyzing activities and utilizing the engagement.
Goalous will keep evolving to saturate Joy to the world with Gimmicky IT.
