You will find competitors in whatever career you choose. No matter how small or niche your field, some people always stand out in your profession. Education, experience and other advantages contribute to these people’s success, but how you lead you work life can makes a huge difference, too.
One of the best ways to stand out in your field and in your career is through creative collaboration. Embracing mutuality--sharing of your strengths, acknowledging your weaknesses and partnering with others with complementary skill sets--strengthens your professional credentials in an increasingly interconnected economy. And people who can facilitate collaboration are best positioned to solve employers’ most pressing challenges.
This week on Find Your Dream Job, our guest expert is Kare Anderson, Emmy-winning journalist, TED presenter, and author of Mutuality Matters and Moving from Me to We. Kare believes that collaborative problem solving is the key to a dynamic, engaging and impactful career. She shares her thoughts on how to improve mutuality and the value of team collaboration.
In this 32-minute episode you will learn:
Why collaboration is a valuable, in-demand skill in the modern workplace
How to leverage your professional networks to facilitate collaboration
How to embrace mutuality as a tool for networking and job-hunting
Tips for improving your teamwork skills--even if you’re an introvert
