Joy Superpowers – Episode 13– Collaboration with Patrick Aylward

Podcast Recap

In episode 13 of the Joy Superpowers podcast, I’m talking with Patrick Aylward about the Joy Superpower of Collaboration. Patrick used to be a courtroom lawyer and mediator, who is now an author on a mission to change the world by creating a global culture of collaboration. His book, the Collaborative Path, introduces a collaborative model to replace the generally used debate format. The model provides an easy to learn, and easy to use six step process to change the leadership conversation.

During this episode, we are discussing topics such as:

  • why is collaboration so important nowadays
  • collaboration in the workplace
  • challenges organizations face while trying to build a collaborative workplace and different approaches/styles to decision making
  • relationship between collaboration and conflict
