Collaboration is about much more than simply getting along with your colleagues. It’s about creating value and performing well together. In the podcast “Connect, Collaborate, Champion!” published by New American Colleges and Universities (NACU), we explore what collaboration is really about–and how to actually do it better.
In increasingly diverse workplaces, how do we collaborate well with individuals who don’t share our background, beliefs, or even our goals? How do we engage in meaningful conversations that expand our collective perspectives and enable us each to perform at our best—even when trust is low?
The key is not where most people think it is.
