Ep 145 - Building incredible collaborative relationships at work with Deb Mashek

Uncategorized Oct 02, 2023


Collaboration is an essential part of working life – we have to work alongside others to succeed in our role.  So I was fascinated to come across Deb Mashek’s book, “Collabor(h)ate: How to build incredible collaborative relationships at work (even if you’d rather work alone”

We’ve all experienced tension at work and felt the joy of being in a good team.  In this episode Deb and I discuss:

  • What collaboration is and why it matters
  • How and why it sometimes goes wrong
  • Strategies for building strong successful working relationships
