9 Collaborators Webisode 1 : Dinosaurs Walk Among Us
Meet Kevin, our resident Central Desktop dinosaur.
Ever since he scored “Dinosaur” on our 9 Types of Collaborators quiz, we’ve been giving Kevin a hard time (in good fun) about not having a smart phone. He’s even embraced his new nickname T-Rex – or in some circles K-Rex – by updating his profile pic in CD to a T-Rex and making a special appearance at the end of our video.
In all seriousness though, we know Kevin’s score of “dino” on the quiz doesn’t mean he’s not tech-savvy. One of the best things about the 9 Types of Collaborators is that we can lightheartedly point out traits we hadn’t noticed before. And what this quiz does reveal is Kevin’s work/collaboration style.
Dinosaurs tend to:
- Be habitual
- Resist change
- Like the “old school” way of doing things
But there are also strengths the dinosaur brings to the table, such as:
- Deep knowledge
- Pressure to make sure everything is relevant and easy to use (They’re the best gauge of user-friendliness.)
We thought it’d be fun to introduce you to the real-life versions of the types of collaborators as a reminder that there are dinosaurs, socialites, ringleaders, executives, skeptics, experts, taskmasters, siloists and stealth ninjas all around us.
We’ll begin with our first webisode, “Dinosaurs Walk Among Us.” Enjoy!
