Peerconnect: Work Well

Peerconnect Work Well - how to maximize the use of LinkedIn

Our top tips to help you work well:

1. Make the most of your unique strengths

Everyone has natural strengths. Think about a time when you did something that:

  • Made you feel energized and strong.
  • Came to you naturally.
  • Someone else said you did well.

You can learn to identify your and make the most of your unique strengths.

2. Lay the groundwork for team success

Effective teamwork doesn’t just happen by itself—you need to make it happen!

Create a high­-performing team by:

  • Making sure that everyone agrees about what the team is doing
  • Finding out what the team needs—and the roles each person will play
  • Setting ground rules about how you will work together
  • Finding out when everyone is available to meet
  • Developing a project activity plan and establish deadlines
  • Keeping tabs on how you’re doing

Consider using a team contract to help your team to stay on track. Download one of our PDFs to get started:
