Collaboration – Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival

I’ve been involved with the organizing industry since 2002, and one thing that’s really stood out for me is that most organizers don’t view each other as competition. In fact, the opposite is true! Organizers typically support one another by sharing resources and expertise, and even collaborate from time to time.

While working as an organizer, I partnered with colleagues on a number of occasions. Someone who specialized in residential organizing would ask me to come along when they had office organizing jobs so they could tap into my expertise in that area, and when I had an opportunity to help a client in their home, I’d invite them to accompany me. We also conducted presentations together.

For this edition of the Productivity & Organizing Blog Carnival, I invited my readers to share their own examples of collaboration. They’ve contributed stories about professional organizers collaborating with their clients, their colleagues, and other professionals, as well as tips for families to collaborate when organizing the home.

The sponsor for this edition is Peggy Wonder of Space For You. Peggy’s clients benefit from the empathetic skills of 25 years’ training in deep listening in a residential feedback learning program in an intentional community, as well as many years studying positive life principles and running a secondhand store. All of this training and work has given her insight into people’s patterns and blocks, and experience with sorting and arranging objects while optimizing space use.

Check out all the great submissions, and be sure to show the bloggers your appreciation by leaving comments and sharing their blog posts (or this one) with your network.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this Blog Carnival, especially our wonderful sponsor.

Next month’s Blog Carnival is all about Writing and Organizing, and you’re welcome to make your submission any time from now until midnight EDT on Wednesday, July 17th.

I recommend...

A former professional organizer, I now eliminate stress for my clients by hosting, monitoring, and maintaining their WordPress sites so they don’t have to worry about security, downtime or performance issues. When I’m away from my desk, I enjoy reading, photography, watching movies, and cooking.

    This was such an intriguing topic. I look forward to reading the posts I’d not already seen over the course of the usual Monday sharing protocol.
