“No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.” poet John Donne
According to a 2015 study in the National Bureau of Economic Research, social skills have a growing importance in the labor market. In order to succeed at work, experts need to keep on developing both their technical skills and “foundational skills”, like empathy and creativity.
The work place is a space of co-creation and collaboration with others. The more we learn how to communicate and behave with our co-workers, the better we’ll be able to divide tasks quickly and effectively between team members. People feel happier being part of a more productive team.
As part of the main, we need to be aware of the great value we could individually bring to the group. The more motivated, inspired and passionate we are about our individual work, the more valuable the outcome.
Building Work Cultures of Engagement and Growth
- Communicate with clarity
- Personal biases awareness
- Listening skills
Because organisational changes reflect the quality of conversations in teams. Direct and one to one conversations are the engine of change when the feeling of overwhelm is replaced by focus on priorities.
Because being involved in organisational change means managing tension in work relationships. Self-awareness is like a breath of fresh air.
Because lack of employee motivation to engage in change will result in overdue projects.
- Creative thinking skills
- Work wellbeing
Because we get the tendency to get attached to a particular way of thinking and a set of rules. And breakthroughs happen when we break free from the habitual thinking and dare to try out new things.
In the same way we are interested in brushing our teeth twice a day, we can get interested in taking care of our emotional states.
