Working out Loud (WOL) helps organisations create more collaborative cultures and individuals access a better career and life.
Working Out Loud is a way to build relationships that can help you in some way, like achieving a goal or exploring a new topic or skill. Instead of networking to get something, you invest in relationships by making contributions over time, including your work and experiences that you make visible. Your contributions over time are what build trust and deepen a sense of relatedness, and that's what increases the chances for cooperation and collaboration.
The results? When you Work Out Loud, you're more effective because you have access to more people, knowledge, and opportunities that can help you. You feel better, too, because your bigger network of meaningful relationships give you a greater sense of control, competence, and connection. All of that leads to more motivation for individuals, and to more agility, innovation, and collaboration for an organisation.
