Dealing with Co-workers

One of the buzzwords in managerial circles these days is “teamwork,” but no one’s completely sure how to go about making it a reality other than to take the staff on morale-boost excursions involving rope courses and trust-building exercises.

For all the mystery surrounding it, true teamwork comes down to knowing your job, doing it well, respecting the other members in your group, and working with them to accomplish a common goal. So how do you learn to collaborate with your co-workers without sacrificing your individual work agenda? Here are 5 hints:

Clarify What’s in Conflict
Find a Common Goal
Don’t Take Things Personally--Or Make Things Personal
Stick to the Issue at Hand
Don’t Let Friendship Get in the Way of Your Job
