Let’s Shake on It ® – and Work Together from There

Are you sick and tired of initiatives, projects, programs, and assignments that go nowhere simply because of someone’s inability or unwillingness to get along with others even when the others are on the same team? Now with Let’s Shake on It ® you can finally single out individual team players who possess both the skills and the motivation to collaborate.

Simply attach the adhesive sensor to the palm of your right hand, make sure the jack is plugged in, the cable is running up your sleeve, and it is connected to your iPhone. The Let’s Shake on It ® software takes over from there. All you need to do shake hands with potential partners. {A wireless version is in development.}

The Let’s Shake on It ® software is touch activated. The palm sensors will assess the other person’s collaboration disposition using a continuum developed by Arthur Himmelman. If an individual scores 1 out of 4, that means he or she is only willing and able to network, that is, exchange information for mutual benefit. A score of 2 out of 4 indicates that the individual can network with others and coordinate, that is, alter his or her activities for mutual benefit to achieve a common purpose. An individual scoring 3 out of 4, accordingly, can network, coordinate, and cooperate, which means that he or she is also inclined to share resources.  Now, when an individual scores a 4 out of 4, it is time to take notice. In addition to having what it takes to network, coordinate, and cooperate, this person can collaborate, can execute all the above and more driven by the desire to grow and the commitment to take part in the growth of team mates and partners in the very process of working together!

When the sensors have identified a collaborator, the Let’s Shake on It ® program will chime. Do not let go of that hand!

    • Kevin, Thanks for visiting again, and thanks for the comment. The idea of hardware and software tied a palm sensor to detect someone’s collaboration disposition is goofy, but Himmelman’s continuum is real. I’ve seen it help people and organizations get a clearer picture of the ways business is currently conducted and the ways it could be done with just a little additional and intentional effort. So, yea, if only!
