    #235 How to collaborate at work

Intentional collaboration has been shown to be 3 x more effective than expecting good collaboration to just 'happen' when we might want it to. In this week's episode, Helen and Sarah talk through the skills we need to develop and structures we need to put in place to collaborate effectively at work.
