Every successful organisation depends on teams to deliver complex projects, innovative strategies and effective customer service.
If you're part of a team, what does it take to be an effective team member? How can you bring your unique strengths and experience to work in harmony with others in your organisation? And how should they work with you?
This workshop will help you consider your own team and your role within it, highlighting opportunities to adapt and improve your approach where relevant.
You'll also get the chance to look at what you need from your team and consider how to use influencing techniques to achieve it.
As the saying goes, “No man is an island.” We all need a little help now and again. But sometimes it seems as though everyone is too busy with their own projects to spare any time to help out on yours. So how do you ask for help?
The first thing is to ask. It seems obvious, but unless you ask you have no chance of securing help. People may not be as busy as they look.
The majority of people certainly won’t turn you down flat. By and large, people are inclined to help where they can. And if they can’t help, they might suggest someone who can.
If you’re feeling on top of things, consider taking a moment to help out someone else. Perhaps they’re struggling with a task, or are feeling overwhelmed. A helping hand from you could be extremely welcome!
It doesn’t have to be a big commitment, or take too long. For example tell them you have half an hour before your next appointment, is there anything you can do? You could offer to be a sounding board, or offer a different perspective. Or maybe you could suggest a useful approach, or know someone who can help further.
It’s worth it – for you and for them. They’ll feel grateful for the help, and you’ll feel good for offering it.
