Episode Summary on Effective Collaboration
Effective collaboration is the key to being able to leverage the skills, knowledge, wisdom, energy and effort of others. Aristotle said "the whole is greater than the sum of the parts" and never is that more true than when you collaborate effectively with a group of like minded (and like-hearted) individuals.
In this episode you'll hear how Gill Tiney stumbled upon the power of effective collaboration and how she now uses it to help make a difference to people, to their business, to their family and to their communities. She also shares how effective collaboration will send your productivity "through the roof".
