#HR #RRHH #Teamwork Takes Work: 7 Ways to Play Nice With Others

#HR #RRHH #Teamwork Takes Work: 7 Ways to Play Nice With Others | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Remember your kindergarten report card, when you were evaluated on things like your ability to follow directions, name the colors, and sing the alphabet? It also included an early assessment of a skill that would influence your success for the rest of your life: the ability to "play well with others." The criteria were pretty basic at the time: share, wait your turn, don't hit or yell, help when someone is struggling. As you grow up, many of the same basic principles apply, but situations can be much more complicated for adults to play well together and still achieve desired results.

 

Context and personal needs often create internal conflict when trying to weigh the needs of the few against the good of the whole. And as a leader, sometimes you have to make a conscious choice to make others unhappy. Still, with a little finesse, you can meet objectives and still all play in a happy sandbox. You may not satisfy everyone all of the time, but then working together to resolve conflicts, rather than just being pleasant all of the time, can make a team stronger.

The workplace is basically an adult sandbox. There are those that play together well, those who are aloof and of course there are bullies. These tips will help you manage them all.

7 Reasons You Aren't As Smart As You Think You Are

Owning and operating a brain is hard. You are issued one at birth, a model that comes riddled with delusions and biases, prone to logical fallacies, and built to create stories to help explain the difficult and messy business of being a person.

Interesting article: You believe a lot fewer ridiculous things than even the smartest people did just a few hundred years ago, but that doesn't make you smarter than them, just less dumb.

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Finally this article says what everyone should know about sale, but it's also valid both in the social media world and, of course, in the real life. Be a person who gives is always the best path to receive more in return, even if you do not expect that and it's not your goal. [note Martin Gysler]

 

 

Bob Burg, co-author of The Go-Giver, says high-pressure sales are the wrong way to go.

 

To many people, sales is a shady profession, predicated on shark-like closing techniques, manipulation, and shallow, transactional relationships. Bob Burg says that’s exactly the wrong approach. “Top salespeople, the best of the best, understand that when it comes to selling, it isn’t about them or their product or service. It’s about the other person and how they benefit from it,” he says. Burg, co-author (with John David Mann) of the bestselling The Go-Giver: A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea and their follow-up Go-Givers Sell More, admits his emphasis on the other person “sounds Pollyanna-ish.” But he’s convinced that a low-pressure – even no-pressure – approach will ultimately result in far more sales (not to mention greater career satisfaction for its practitioners).

10 Great Tips for Success in Both Life and Business

10 Great Tips for Success in Both Life and Business | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Success in life and in business, doesn't occur as a result of following a prescribed course of action that you can find in a neat package somewhere, or copying slavishly the behaviours of someone you admire.

 

Rather, success comes from applying lessons learned from others in a way which works for you, and in a way that also takes into account the many unique factors that make you so different from anyone else.

 

This excellent article, suggests that having a template of sorts to follow will save time and energy on your road to success, and it offers ten tips that you can implement to help you on your journey.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's curator insight, September 8, 2013 8:13 PM

After looking at the lives of certain great men, I was able to come up 13 rules that high achievers never break. If you obey these rules, you will become a high achiever too.

1. Don’t compare your life to others and don’t judge them; you have no idea what their journey is all about.

Stop trying to be someone else. We all have our own distinct purposes in life. Be yourself always and become the best version of you. You are original, not a counterfeit.

Good Employees Make Mistakes. Great Leaders Allow Them To. - Forbes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
As a business leader, I found that one of the scariest things to do was to give your people the freedom to make mistakes. While mistakes allow individuals to learn and grow, they can also be very costly to any company.

When have you created even more value after a mistake or setback?

Ante Lauc's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:07 AM

We from exYu are people with the greatest number of mistakes per capita, because we did live between east and west (communist versus capitalist), between north and south ( rich and poor). But we did not learn anything from our failures. Can, at least other nation, we rich zero defect and just in time? 

Yes, we can!
