Being an Effective Team Member

June 24, 2020 10:13 AM

SkillSoft Spotlights focus on just-in-time online learning that supports you in navigating complex challenges in personal and professional life, helps you to increase your effectiveness, and to improve your relationships. Each course is 30 minutes or less and is curated to provide tools, strategies, and practices to accelerate your success.

This week's spotlight course is Being an Effective Team Member (30 min).

Making a real, positive difference on a team is not necessarily about showing team leadership. Even if your role doesn’t involve managing teams, you can still make an important contribution by being a strong team member.
This course covers strategies and techniques to help you become a more effective and valued team member. You'll explore ways to adopt a positive mindset toward teamwork, so that you can make a significant contribution. Because your success when working on a team depends on pulling together with other people, you'll also learn constructive ways to acknowledge differences and show respect for teams, and specific strategies for team collaboration.

Participants will learn to:
  • recognize the effects that having a good attitude can have on a team
  • identify strategies for adopting a positive mindset about working on a team
  • identify the characteristics of a team member who has a proactive attitude
  • recognize how to be a proactive team member
  • recognize how to acknowledge team members' rights to have differing opinions
