You can't ignore 70%!

November 15, 2018

We all know that relationships are important and we often focus on building them with our direct supervisor or colleagues who we work closely with. We'd like to challenge you to find someone on your team who you don't know that well - ask them for coffee or to talk a walk and try to avoid just gossiping about others on your team or about the organization. Here are some questions to get started:

What are you focused on in your current role?
What do you love most about your job or about working here?
What’s most stressful for you?
What common goals or aspirations might we share?
What could get in the way of a successful working relationship for us? 
Where could we have conflicting goals, priorities, timelines or needs?
What are our personality types?  How do they show up at work?
How can we work better together?
Are there some agreements or norms that would allow us to be more effective in working together (e.g., frequency or mode of check-in)?

Be the one who starts the conversation!
