At leisure, you can generally choose who we spend time with. At work however, many are put into teams and forced to work together. As you continue your career you’ll be involved in many varied teams and unable to select the other team members.
To make things harder, many people are working alone from home during these days of social distancing. Despite endless team calls, you can still seem isolated from the rest of your team. Without the usual opportunities to chat informally, you can lose the opportunity to spark ideas off each other and feel in the dark about what’s really going on.
As a result, being able to work with others and being able to flex our approach even when working remotely is a core soft skill.
This session will explore how to understand your team working preferences so that you can maximise your contribution, including fun interactive exercises to bring this course to life.
After this course you’ll be energised to work together collaboratively in a remote setting by understanding your own teamwork preferences so you operate more effectively
