Collaborative environments are at the core of the modern workplace, replacing the more competitive models of old. Not only do positive relationships with co-workers raise job satisfaction and, by extension, employee retention, fostering collaboration helps companies and teams make the most of their knowledge resources. By putting minds together, team members share a wealth of information and combine their insights in myriad ways.
In this session, the speakers are going to translate intangible collaboration through tangible behaviours and suggest an effective approach on how to accelerate collaboration through connecting and adapting with different behavioural style in workplace.
