How we work with others is increasingly becoming more and more important in how we deliver outcomes in the changing world of work.

With work being delivered across boundaries, geographies and cultures, it’s important that people are given the opportunity to be included, and enabled, to work together.

As people professionals, we have a key role to play in working collaboratively and inclusively, but also encouraging, facilitating and setting up cross-boundary working, building high-trust relationships, and managing conflict constructively.
