Is collaboration good for your work?
This is important because no one individual can think of all possible idea and solutions and everyone has their own background, knowledge and skills that they can bring to the table. Collaborating with others will ensure several viewpoints are taken into account and will also decrease the likelihood that crucial information is missed.
“Personally credible (Builds and delivers professionalism through combining commercial and HR expertise to bring value to the organisation, stakeholders and peers.)”
Showing you have the technical know-how and an understanding of an organisation and the context in which it is operating will fill others with confidence in your ability to make the right decisions and recommendations. This is a great way to build trust and rapport with colleagues and clients, enabling an individual to drive results without too much pushback.
“Curious (Is future-focused, inquisitive and open-minded; seeks out evolving and innovative ways to add value to the organisation.)” ^
It can be easy to fall into the trap of simply focusing on the day to day tasks at work, but there is so much going on around us in the world of work and in the wider industry that it is important to be curious to ensure we don’t miss anything of importance. Those who are curious will ask detailed questions about existing processes, look out for potential opportunities and analyse the way things are done. This type of behaviour is needed within an organisation to ensure they maintain great performance, make timely improvements and don’t fall behind competitors.
