The Workplace – Q and A site for your career


I recently came across The Workplace – a question and answer site for people who go to work.

It’s built on the Stack Exchange platform – which has considerable success in building knowledge communities, particularly around techy topics. I personally find the WordPress one an invaluable resource.

In The Workplace, people are asking questions about how to deal with job interviews, difficult conversations with colleagues, bad managers and how best to use certain tools and processes.

It’s a fun idea and certainly seems to resonate with a big group of people as it is a fairly active community. Why not take a look?

Here’s something new for you, dear readers

As always, I am trying to be helpful.

No, really! I am.

So, here’s a new thing. Every so often I will answer some questions put to me by visitors to this blog.

All you have to do is ask a question, about a topic big or small, in the comments below.

Then, once I have come up with an answer, I’ll record a video or something and publish it here on the blog.

It could be about anything to do with online innovation, so could be external digital engagement, or internal online collaboration. Something small like what sort of content to use to engage people on Twitter, or something big, like the best way to implement a strategic approach to social media in an organisation.

So, go ahead! Ask a question in the comments, and then I’ll pick one to answer in a few days.
