Being able to cooperate at work means that there is mutual respect and that you trust each other within the work area. If you work in teams, it is particularly important to have a sense of togetherness. Here are 4 tips on how to get a stronger unity at work:
The word communication is often thought of as “talking”, but good communication is also about being a good listener. This means that you must listen carefully to your colleagues and employees and try to see things from their perspective before you respond. It is also a good idea to learn to interpret body language and other non-verbal signals. These signals often provide real and valuable insights that words cannot convey.
Support your colleagues
You can also create positive relationships at work by supporting those you work with. For example, if you are a senior, you should try to assist, educate and guide your subordinates to the best of your ability.
Recognize your colleagues’ achievements in front of others. In this way, you will gain respect and establish a culture of support.
Be true to your word
Trust is an important part of any relationship – people can only trust you when you are true to your word. If something doesn’t go as planned due to your work schedule or any other reason, inform your colleagues in advance and let them know that you will be back as soon as possible (and actually get back to them). Remember to be realistic when you take on work tasks.
Be aware of your own strengths and weaknesses
An honest self-evaluation is a big part of developing strong relationships at work. You should work on developing skills such as effective communication, problem solving and mentorship.
To summarize, no business can function effectively and have a strong unity at work without positive interactions and strong working relationships.
