Talk It Out

Talk It Out

Communicating means more than simply talking. To improve your connection with people:

  • Be candid. Don't harbor hidden agendas and air messages through third parties.
  • Be quick. If something is bothering you, address the problem within 24 hours.
  • Be inclusive. Open communication increases trust.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Be Flexible

The best attribute to bring to a team is adaptability. To become more flexible in your thinking:

  • Keep learning. Jot down new information as you learn it.
  • Think beyond your role. Learn a little bit about everyone’s duties, especially those higher up on the ladder than you. 
  • Think creatively. Look for unconventional solutions when you meet a challenge.
Show enthusiasm

Grow your enthusiasm by:

  • Showing a sense of urgency. Give yourself deadlines for completing the steps of a project.
  • Taking on more. Do what is required and then go beyond the assignment.
  • Striving for excellence. Nothing breeds enthusiasm like the feeling of success that follows a job well done.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.
