Why did you make up CollabRjabbR? Our founder has been collaborating in the Film and Theater world for twenty years as well as teaching those art forms. Our team wanted to try and use cutting edge technology to see if we could enhance teamwork in creative processes in a similar way that we encourage success on sports teams: hard work, thoughtfulness and gear.
What does MINDFULNESS have to do with it? Absolutely Everything. Simply by bringing my attention to the bottoms of my feet and/or my breathing, we believe that you are able to be a more EFFECTIVE COLLABRATOR.
How do you decide what is more or less effective? We don't really mean to decide, we want to help you and your teammates decide so we compile TANGIBLE data from CONNECTED DEVICES and INTANGIBLE data gathered through the answers to the 20 questions and compare them with your TEAM's stated goals and defined values.
What are CONNECTED DEVICES? CollabRjabbR has partnered with a curated set of businesses that are ALIGNed with our mission. These businesses are often selected by our teams because they make something we could use to enhance our collaboration in our creative lives. So our APP, Check Yo Self, connects to the devices around you in the INTERACTIVE ROOM.
What is the INTERACTIVE ROOM? Just as it sounds, it is a conference room, classroom or performance space that has been infused with all of the CollabRation GEAR we need to MAKE: Creative EXPORTS as well as a user interface that includes your phone, your WEARABLES and the touchable walls made interactive through a series of projectors, touch screen TVs and infrared cameras. This enables teammates to choose how to engage along the SPECTRUM of ENGAGEMENT.
What are the GENRE of CollabRation? We define six macro genre of team play: REAL, as in estate planning like architecture, interior design or urban planning; FOOD, as in opening a new restaurant, or family dinner; LIVE, as in a music tour, theater production or church youth group meeting; SELL, as in a TV commercial, a new product or a business; LENSED, as in a film, episodic web series or PUBS, as in curating a YouTube Channel, publishing a magazine or
What are the PHASES of CollabRation? We define the five phases of collabRation as BRAINSTORMING, DEVELOPING, ALIGNING, IMPROVING and MAKE(ing). Our intention is that these phases are not linear and that TEAMs can jump around within their PROCESS but that they are strings of time that, when defined and codified for the TEAM, are exponentially helpful.
What makes for more Effective CollabRation? We value exercise, the sun, patience, location of
What is the SPECTRUM of ENGAGEMENT? Many peer reviewed studies have led us incorporate this engagement spectrum as fact. Since we all began carrying a phone in our pocket to every meeting, society has had to confront the new truth about the other people at the table: they are not as engaged in what you are talking about because of this distraction. Collab101 is looking to use all of this paradigm to our advantage because leaving our phones off is worse and often leads to LESS EFFECTIVE CollabRation.
