Episode 1: The 5 Benefits of Collaboration [Podcast]

Welcome to the new season of This Is Your Life. In this first episode, Michele Cushatt, my new co-host, and I talk about why I decided to change my podcast so dramatically and what you can learn about leadership from our experience.

Many people talk about the value of collaboration, but in this episode, we get very specific about why you must collaborate with others if you are going to reach your potential as a leader. We also discuss how it benefits those you hope to influence.
