Beach Walk 322 – Hui Part 2

Hui (from yesterday’s show) is a very different energy than “association” which is one of its translations.

Beach Walk 321 – Working Together

Your Hawaiian word today – hui. Working well together requires acceptance of our own idiosyncrasies.

Hui is one of my favorite Hawaiian words. It’s fun to say, and it means a whole wide notion of togetherness and collaboration. In my world, the best collaborations occur when each person knows their strengths and weaknesses, and the team agrees to support each member towards a common goal.

The lifeguard stand at Kaiua has been washed out by the winter storms. You can see the remnants in today’s show.

The canoe I mentioned from Lanikai Canoe Club is HuiHuiAkolea.

With whom do you hui?

Beach Walk 229 – Is your tide rising?

Walk with me along Laguna Beach as we entertain the spirit of collaboration.

For those of you who are new here, I usually walk the beach with my dog Lexi in Hawai’i. But I am on the road traveling for my job, so you get to come along with me! I like to think of Beach Walks as much as an attitude as a place. A place where we explore the edges of the known world, and think differently.

At the Podcast Expo a little over a week ago, I was really struck with how many people were talking about and practicing collaboration. Victor Cajaio and friends have built the “FIT” Network, Friends in Tech. Instead of fighting for audience, they’ve figured that if they share audience, they can actually deliver a broader spectrum of related content and give their collective audience even more.

You can read more of thoughts about collaboration over at our Bare Feet Studios blog, where I coined the term “R2R” for rival to rival business transactions.
