It is very hard to get our work done without collaboration.  Sometimes
those collaborators are on our team, sometimes in our organization,
sometimes they are elsewhere in our university, and sometimes they are
outside our university in suppliers, government agencies, etc.  When
collaboration occurs things go well.

Ten Minutes

As all of your know by now, I read a lot from a lot of sources.
Yesterday, a newsletter called Marketplace Moments written by a friend,
Randy Kilgore, reached my desk.  It carries a story which I want to
repeat:
 
"It's December 17, 1941. The citizens of the town of North Platte,
Nebraska heard a rumor that a troop train carrying their sons and
daughters to war would be stopping at the depot in their town for about
ten minutes.

Mastering Q and A

We all do presentations and after the presentation there is always
questions and answers.  While the questions and your answers do not
add all that much content to what you had to say, how you answer
plays into how your audience evaluates you and what you had to say;
presence and presentation again.
 
Today's -- really yesterday's -- reading is a short piece from a
recent Point Lookout newsletter -- Mastering Q and A.

Virtual Communications

One of the things that is becoming more important to all of us is

"virtual communication," whether one-on-one or with teams.  Some of

us are old hands at this, others are still learning.  I've copied

below three recent columns on the subject from Point Lookout, a free

weekly email newsletter produced by Chaco Canyon Consulting.  I've

found the columns to be direct, usually insightful, and often quite

helpful. (Back issues of the newsletter can be found at
