Are you a collaboration "superhero" with "superpowers"?

Jane McGonical,  in her excellent book "Reality is Broken – Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World",  identifies  three new Collaboration skills which are so important that she calls them “SuperPowers”:

1. High Ping Quotient (PQ)
The Ability to demonstrate network extroversy

2. Collaboration  Radar
The Ability to quickly find the best collaborators

3. Emergensight
The Ability to thrive on chaos and react well to emerging situations

These three “Superpowers” are  crucial if you want to thrive in a global networked instantly connected environment. They also resonate closely with my 3 new collaborative leadership skills which I call The Collaboration Trilogy.
