9 types of collaborators: benchmark report 2014

Collaborators come in all shapes and sizes. Our 9 types of collaborators infographic (newly refreshed!) and quiz offer a fun way to identify some common and quirky workplace personalities – and to recognize your own role, whether you’re an indefatigable ringleader or a change-averse dinosaur.

How do you and your office stack up against the rest of the business world? Our new 9 types of collaborators benchmark report digs more deeply into the data we’ve accumulated from more than 10,000 quiz-takers so far.

First, we revisit each of the collaborator types, adding a little more info to the mix. What are your strengths? Who are your most compatible and least compatible coworkers? When do you need to exercise caution? And how many people out there are like you? (For instance, 15% of quiz-takers qualify as experts.)

Next, pretty charts will show you the breakdown of collaborator types across everyone, and then how that data compares to Central Desktop’s own internal results. What are the trends in collaboration? Will the workplace dinosaur soon be extinct? Will privacy concerns lead to more siloists and fewer socialites?

Finally, we consider suggested groupings for the collaborator types. You’ll see how to recognize and distribute your power users and reluctant users in order to encourage collaborative success across your organization.
