Ian Weinberg, you are absolutely corrct. Those who approach collaboration as an end in itself are destined to perpetually navigate the endless shallow waters of contemporary social media. Collaboration is a tool, not a goal and must be approached as such in order to be fruitful.Moreover, if “Collaborative Professional Networking” is to have genuine meaning, it has to be grounded in transparent operation and mangement — no undisclosed agendas or undiclosed manipulation by platform ownership or management. And it has to embody 100% organic engagement and connections, combined with the ability to form and maintain goal-specific collaborative groups and protect them from gratuitos, destructive forays mounted by habitual disruptors. All of these requirements work against the historical paradigm of Social Media monetization and require an authentic shift in basic philosophy. Otherwise, talk of collaboration amounts to no mor than the same old marketing jingoism disguised as a “new” idea. Those who ignore history are fated to repeat the mis-steps etched there.If you are interested in discussing a genuine initiative to establish Collaborative Professional Networking, consider joing the conversation that began more than three weeks ago on LinkedIn:https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6347258477970288640https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6353101805794131968Your contribution would be welcomed and valued.

Yes my friend David Navarro López. Great leaders try to simplify complex systems so that they may become manageable. If they can work within a manageable boundary then that is great. The other approach is to encourage learning and adapting. Self-organizing teams is one example of such approaches. A team would set simple rules for all to abide by. Due to interactions some great discoveries may emerge. Like a flock of birds when on fly and by following simple rules a V_shaped pattern appears. A leaders job is to simplify rule, because even though they may appear simple, their interactions and feedback may not be.

So if future is unpredictable, why not trying to manage the future making things happen? It could look like a risky strategy. But it can be as risky as waiting to see what happens. This is to me, the difference between a reactive leader, and an active one. Everyone should be a leader, at least, of his/her own life. Is it better to react to the things that happen in life, or to provoke changes in the way you would like to? My point is, as our societies are so complex and unpredictable if one is willing to walk the path it fits one's expectation, the only way is establishing the boundaries of this path yourself, instead of letting unpredictability to set them.
