Change is a constant in most workplaces today. Many of us in leadership positions do not have a good understanding of how to effectively initiate those changes. Not because we are poor leaders, but because we don’t always understand our people. Many times employees resist change and/or complain about the change, or their attempts at implementing the change are slow and not up to par. Many times the employee appears to be inflexible.
TEAMS ARE EFFECTIVE WHEN... each person on the team respects others; strives to be a likeable person; does their part; is flexible; takes responsibility for their mistakes; cooperates with others; communicates effectively; is motivated; and is customer focused.
When we truly have RESPECT FOR OTHERS we are patient with others; we treat others with courtesy; and we think before we speak.
In order to be a PERSON OTHER PEOPLE LIKE to work with and cooperate with, we must do those things which show concern for other people’s feelings and needs.
