If you know your strengths, you've got to use them. What are you good at and when can you volunteer to do that? In each situation what can you offer to do?
- Once you know your strengths, then your duty…as a great team member is to use them.…Volunteer for anything that you can contribute towards.…What are the challenges that your team is facing…at the moment, and how can you help with these?…Also, looking at it the other way around,…what are you good at, and when can you volunteer…to do those things?…If you find this question difficult,…then there are a couple of things you can do.…First, you could ask your colleagues…what you can best contribute to,…and hope that there isn't a long silence…as they scratch their chins.…
And also, have a look at my list of team roles…from earlier in this course.…A quick reminder, it contained things like…organising, that could be people or ideas,…pushing things along to get the job done quickly.…Perhaps being a coach, helping others to perform better.…Maybe being a networker, meeting new people,…collecting new ideas.…Maybe being the creative idea generator,…or the reverse of that, thinking about what might go wrong…with other people's plans.…
