Combining her expertise as a psychologist and her experience as a consultant,
she reveals how we can earn trust, repair relationships, and create
collaborations that bring out the best in us."
Many people have mixed feelings about workplace collaboration.
On the one hand, they know collaboration is essential to achieve complex goals.
On the other hand, they know collaboration is a slog. People pull in different
directions. There's desperately little communication and even less follow
through. One person ends up doing all the work. The result? Friction mounts.
Projects fizzle. Great people walk.
Here's why: very few of us ever receive any formal training in
how to collaborate well.
In Collabor(h)ate, Deb Mashek draws on her deep
experience as a relationships researcher and collaboration facilitator to
reveal everything you need to know to make workplace collaborations less
painful and more productive.
Dr Deb Mashek is an experienced business consultant, professor,
higher education administrator, and national nonprofit executive. She applies
relationship science to help people collaborate better.
