Collaboration is a pre-requisite to good and long lasting work relationships, we all seem to agree but never really do.
|Working solo is hard and doesn't help collaboration|
Make sure you don't work solo and make the first step towards people even if you're the only one to do it. You'll be surprised how much it'll be appreciated despite feeling a bit strange at times.
Make sure all your coworkers do it as well by encouraging them too. It's not enough to do it yourself, make it happen across all teams around you.
