Business Wants More Collaboration With Government [Infographic]

Collaboration with Business and Government

One thing almost everyone can agree with—government needs to communicate better.

Nearly 96 percent of public-sector employees polled by GovDelivery said they believed that stronger relationships with agencies, consultants and the public would be beneficial.

This infographic by GovDelivery outlined a snapshot of public-sector opinion listing the top reasons for increased collaboration:

  • A way to provide better service to the public.
  • Improved decision-making.
  • Increased efficiencies.
  • Decreased time spent responding to critical issues.

“Our recent research reveals that government employees need to create more collaborative communities to manage communications both inside and outside their organizations, connecting with other agencies, citizens and government consultants,” said GovDelivery CEO Scott Burns.

The most important collaboration tool, according to 71 percent of the employees polled, is the ability to share documents and photos online.

About 56 percent said they wanted analytics and reporting tools, 43 percent reported the importance of email integration with discussion forums, and 43 percent reported a desire for administrative control of collaborative participants.

According to the infographic: “It’s clear that government employees see the need to create more collaborative communities to manage communications inside and outside specific agencies or entities, between citizens, government consultants.”

If there is one key to a happy and successful life—personally and professionally—it is confidence. Some people seem to be clearly poised, always getting what they want out of life. However, one thing is clear; you are not born with confidence.Confidence is something everyone can get, by using these excellent tips:

• Keep your gaze up. Your gaze and chin should be up—slightly higher than parallel with the floor. Looking down is an emotional indication that suggests you are uncertain and slightly frightened—not confident and assured. • Maintain proper posture. Throw your shoulders back, it immediately improves your posture and makes you look taller. Your confidence level will be higher when you stand straight. • Have a relaxed body language. Be relaxed in your body language, but do it without slouching. Hold your shoulders back and take a deep breath. Exhale and feel your shoulders slump a little, even when held back. This will relieve stress, as well as project confidence. • Smile. This is the simplest thing you can do to present a charming character and positive attitude. You may be amazed how much smiling will help you to perform in life. • Make strong eye contact with people. Nothing speaks to the integrity and trust of a person than by looking directly into a person’s eyes when making conversation. In an instant, you are someone who is seen as knowledgeable and authoritative. • Speak clearly and forcefully. Good communication skills are the heart of confidence—in vocabulary, language and tenor. Practice public speaking—it will help you speak clearly in all situations. • Understand your strong points—and use them. Make a list of your strengths, including things people have told you in the past that you have accomplished. By keeping yourself aware of your strong points, you can project them effectively, and use them to your advantage.
