If you can build relationships across groups, you are worth your weight in gold.
When you are given a task, when you are assigned a responsibility, when you have work to do, it is easy to forget about others. Yet what you do impacts them, and what they do might be significant for what you want to achieve.

And that is true even if you are working on your own. Particularly if you are working on your own.
