I think that in this day and age, we are definitely moving towards a more collaborative approach to just about everything in business as every department is a stakeholder in most projects and so learning to play ball as a team is crucial.

Ben did well to highlight some of the essential components such as effective communication in moving towards a more successful outcome, both as an individual and as a company.

I also appreciated the mentions of the good books and will most certainly consider buying them. When I might find to read them may be a different story - #TheDevLife :D

More developers and managers need to hear this talk. Having worked in many collaborative environments I found myself nodding and smiling through most of it, while just wishing quite a few people I've met in my career could hear the points being raised. Some great ideas and concepts about how to get along with people, and why you should make the effort. This really was the "How to win friends and influence people" for IT!

This was very relevant especially after also noticing that most of the group members are self taught and soft skills is one aspect you cannot easily teach yourself.

Very good, common sense information and easy to follow along. Thanks!

Have to add though, as an ambivert woman, much of the EQ stuff is second nature by now :) Let's be honest here!
