WHAT IS WIN-WIN

One Community’s definition of a win-win relationship is one that specifically benefits everyone involved. As a world-change organization our goals and action lists are huge, so the win-win collaboration we seek is specific contribution and support of our open source creations listed below. This helps us open source solutions more efficiently and effectively in support of our global philanthropic and humanitarian goals while also helping our contributor/collaborator partners through:

This means the volunteer/consultant and/or member that typically joins our team fits one or more of the following descriptions:

 

WHY WIN-WIN

One Community is a for The Highest Good of All organization. Through clear communication of goals and expectations, we constantly seek to exemplify Highest Good approaches to collaboration and decision-making that benefit all individuals and groups involved, and the world too. Seeking clear win-win relationships like this helps make sure everyone we work with is directly helping us achieve our global goals while also achieving their own goals and/or aspirations too. We feel this is essential to happy, productive, efficient, and long-lasting working relationships that will help us succeed in positively and permanently transforming the world for everyone.

 

COLLABORATING WITH ONE COMMUNITY

Some examples of current win-win collaboration with One Community include:

  • Businesses that wish to offer us consulting help, products, or discounts
  • People/businesses who are volunteering time to work on and provide consultation for our specific projects/goals
  • Those who are working on extremely similar projects/goals and sharing data/progress/blueprints with us (sometimes creating additional versions modified for our specifications)
  • Volunteers in waiting (for future parts of the project that have not yet launched)

We currently seek partners specifically interested in collaborating on one or more of these open source components of our project::

FREQUENTLY ANSWERED QUESTIONS

Q: How do you evaluate if a potential relationship is “win-win” for One Community?

The question we ask ourselves when evaluating every relationship/partnership is:

  • Does this relationship move one or more of the diversity of projects listed above forward while also benefiting the individual or group offering to help?

The answer is simple and clear in situations where it is a donation of time or direct collaboration on one of these projects in return for the benefits listed on our How We Can Help Our Partners Page. In any situation where the benefits for someone else are clearer than for One Community, we ask ourselves:

  • Does the investment of time in the proposed direction/partnership create an equal or greater reciprocation of time invested back into the above listed goals?

If the answer is “yes” in either case, then we know the relationship will help us move our global goals forward and we therefor consider it win-win.

Q: I feel my project/idea/goals are very similar to yours, so can we work together?

We seek to work together on the open source creations listed above. If your project would involve one or more of these too, or a potential improvement to our project, we’d be interested in speaking about how we can specifically work on them together to help move forward even faster and more comprehensively for you, us, and the world.

Q: I’d like to talk to someone about consulting on my project/another project. Can you help?

One Community’s efforts are currently focused on projects specifically related to our open source and global goals. If you are seeking people who are available for paid work and consulting, there are links on the relevant open source hubs to all the One Community consultants and partners who have helped create everything you see on our website. You are also welcome to email us for a referral as we love to promote those who have helped us. We do not, however, do any one-on-one consulting work ourselves as our sole focus is on open source creation that is publicly and globally accessible.

Q: What if I’d just like to help in any way I can, but I don’t have skills specific to any of the areas above, can I still apply?

Absolutely! We have many research and other “unskilled” projects that we’d love help on too.

Q: Do you offer “on-the-job” training? 

We seek people with a foundational skill set that would require minimal additional training.

Q: Where can I get more details about working with One Community?
