Leverage the strengths of your colleagues to build a high-performance team and avoid the petty misunderstandings that keep you from achieving your goals.
Working with a team can be one of the great joys in life. But it can also be utterly frustrating.
The reason you may find working with other people so challenging is very simple: when your work style and the work style of others clash, the misunderstandings and tension that result can prevent you from completing your best work, block you from receiving that next promotion, undermine your political standing in your organization, or inhibit you from building and leading a high-performance team.
Don’t let others hold you back from your dreams and goals! Learn how to work with them in a way that leverages both of your strengths so you can avoid unnecessary conflict and get ahead in your career.
No two people have identical work styles – some individuals work best alone in long stretches of quiet; others need the energy of frequent verbal back-and-forth. Some revel in a messy office, while for others their pen and mousepad must be lined up at a 90-degree angle. Everyone’s different!
And each work style has its own language. That’s why we run into problems when we try to communicate with those who don’t share our work style.
The Work Well With Others program is like having a fluent translator with you at all times, helping you understand the work languages of your teammates. It explains what drives the behavior of your colleagues, what sparks their interests, what elicits their insights, and even what provokes their anger (ouch—keep away from that!).
It was designed to show you, step by step, how and why conflict occurs and how to prevent it so you can easily work with anyone, anytime to achieve your goals, the team’s goals, and your organization’s goals.
Understand what drives others.
Identify the work style of your colleagues, significant others, and friends so you can understand how they work and the impact their work style has on your ability to work well together.
Draw from the strengths of everyone.
Leverage your colleagues’ strengths so you can achieve extraordinary goals and make a significant impact on your organization.
Interpersonal conflicts are the results of our blind spots colliding. When you can’t see, nor understand where others are coming from, conflict is inevitable. Learn to identify the blind spots of everyone on your team so you can keep your projects moving forward without any work style collisions.
Get your message across clearly.
Communicate to be heard and understood so you can get work done, achieve team goals and build meaningful relationships.
Distribute work evenly across your team.
Delegate effectively so you can harness the productive power of your teammates and complete projects with ease.
The Work Well With Others program has been used and deployed by the employees of some of the world’s leading companies.
