What do you think about working with someone else on a project instead of just by yourself?
Some of you LOVE it – you find greater creativity, a divided workload to ease the burden, and loads of laughs you couldn’t have by yourself (without being looked at sideways).
And there are some of you who probably HATE it. You end up doing all the work, people never understand what you mean, or everything takes twice as long to complete.
Isn’t it funny how working together can bring such diverse reactions?
When we struggle with working collaboratively, it’s often due to a lack of effective communication.
- Not knowing how to say no… so I end up doing the whole thing alone.
- Not knowing how to get my opinions out without sounding bossy or condescending.
- Not knowing that someone else’s differing opinion doesn’t mean that mine is “wrong.”
The cool thing is – it doesn’t have to be that way.
You CAN retrain your communication skills.
You CAN learn ways to speak up for yourself without being bossy.
You CAN practice listening to different opinions without feeling attacked.
It’s all a matter of choice.
We first choose to learn,
then to find a teacher,
and continually to practice the skills.
You can do it – if you want to.
