Are You A Good Collaborator?

A Checklist to Assess Your Collaboration Behaviours

Relationships, Resilience and Re-Invention. These words were chosen specifically as the tag line for Upward HR.  For me they represent three critical skills that employees and leaders need to be successful in our dynamic and evolving workplaces. 

These three skills are also the foundation of what makes someone a good collaborator. By definition, collaboration is a deliberate process of discovery that creates positive shared outcomes based on shared values. 

Good collaborators:

·      develop positive relationships with others
·      enhance their personal resilience working through challenges
·      are open to the re-invention of personal capabilities, and those of others too. 

Becoming a good collaborator is more important than ever before. As you navigate hybrid work, technology, meetings, and staying connected to it all, are you demonstrating good collaboration behaviours that build relationships, resilience and allow for re-invention? 

The checklist below is a quick assessment you can use to assess your own collaboration behaviours. Which areas do you do well? What areas need more practice and patience? How would others describe your collaboration skills? 

Developing your collaboration skills is an ongoing journey. If you invest in demonstrating good collaboration behaviours, it will positively enable your career success and mobility.
