Teamwork skills are important in today’s team-oriented workplaces. Working productively with others is key to building and maintaining a positive professional reputation. Giving credit, rather than taking it, sharing information and staying on schedule are all ways to gain the respect of teammates.
Team members must be responsible and deliver their work on time. They also must deal effectively and productively with conflict. Although conflict is unavoidable, conflict management can help teammates listen to each other, build on each others’ ideas, and create new and better solutions.
Another part of being a good teammate is contributing to discussions and giving honest feedback. The course encourages learners to express ideas, and listen to the ideas of others, without judgement. Then, learners are shown how to brainstorm productively and respect their teammates opinions.
Finally, we teach the valuable skills needed to compromise and reach agreement with coworkers. Honest feedback and constructive criticism are critical for high performance teams.
