#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 |

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.

There is a right way and a wrong way to use the head as well as your heart in leadership.

Contemplative Dialogue is a way of being that asks that we take a long and loving look at the real. Chris Argyris, Peter Senge,, have given us the Ladder of Inference, and other tools, to be awake and aware and to picture the dignity and worth of each person. Our growth is gauged entirely by our capacity to love and be loved.

As Susan states in this article, "Relationships are built based on respect, growth, cooperation and communication." She also highlights the value of compassion and truth. The emotional connection, and our willingness to be present to the whole person, affirms the sacred worth and value of each and every person.
