Welcome to foHRsight – a podcast about making work better brought to you by future foHRward.


In this week’s episode, Naomi Titleman meets with Deb Mashek is a business advisor, professor and collaboration consultant who wrote the book Collaborhate.


You can find out more here about Debs here –https://www.debmashek.com/


In the conversation, Deb shares her perspective on collaboration – something we know is important but something that can be very hard to do creating some mixed emotions and mixed results.


Deb defines collaboration as ‘two or more known individuals working together intentionally to advance specific shared goals’.


In the conversation they talk about when collaboration fizzles and when it sizzles! If it fizzles and you’re in a collaborhate situation the impact on individual’s health can be very negative.


Take a listen to learn how to ensure collaboration is a success by learning the key behaviours to make you a successful collaborator and use the Mashek Matrix (see below) to understand more about how collaborative your relationships are.
