All coworking space PJ organizations aim to run like a well-oiled machine and a well-oiled machine comes from great interpersonal relationships. Thus, one of the most important qualities employers look for in a candidate is their teamwork skills, their ability to get along with others. In whichever profession or position you may be in, this skill is highly valuable and it doesn’t take much. Here are some simple tips on how to become a better coworker.
Remember to be considerate to all staff members in the organization. It may be your boss, your colleagues, your interns, or even the janitors – make sure you’re treating everyone the way you want to be treated, with respect. Your attitude at the workplace (could be a one-off day) will affect those working around you. Therefore, a rude, uncaring, and insensitive attitude can spread throughout the firm and create a very unpleasant workspace. Moreover, do not forget to smile, be empathetic and be considerate as you do not know what other people are going through.
The findings from research conducted by Michigan State University showed that employers and/or colleagues would prefer if you offer help only when asked for. Thus, being overly eager will not get you into their good books but may actually annoy them if it’s constantly offered. Moreover, some workers that are being the recipient of help feel demotivated and feel a negative impact on their self-esteem and thus the helper is greeted with less gratitude
Just like a yawn is contagious, creating an example to be followed has a similar effect. This is because employee manuals or memos do not give that little kick some individuals need to be proactive. Therefore to be a better coworker, set examples through actions and inspire others to act alike – without using only verbal communication. But don’t worry no one is asking you to be perfect, don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Mistakes facilitate an open platform for teaching opportunities and other conversations.
Remember to keep your indifference aside, thoughts to yourself, and be kind. One way to increase an individual’s ability to cowork is through practice. Collaborate together with your partner or team of employees to be able to learn from each other and teach one another. This will enhance cohesiveness between each team member and create strong relationships which will contribute to the efficiency of the company. Furthermore, having your own space within the office space creates room for freedom .
