Real Talk: It’s Time To Be A Good Colleague

About the Workshop

What makes you or others a great employee? When it comes to our professional work, we often work to complete a series of tasks or strategize how to complete all the work we have through time management skills, delegation and new or creative solutions. Do we miss opportunities to demonstrate our ability to be good colleagues that would help contribute to a positive work culture? It’s easy to theorize about aspects that make someone a good colleague, but what does that really mean, and would you know if you were not being a good colleague?

This session offers you the opportunity to engage with one another to help identify and discuss ways to be a good colleague before, during and after working hours. You will identify specific areas unique to your work responsibilities and engage in real-life scenarios including self-control, self-reflection, types of good colleagues, real talk 101, the positive and negative impact of our actions and opportunities for growth. You’ll have time to work collectively and individually to discover and reflect on strategies to help them become good colleagues.

At the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify elements and opportunities that contribute to someone’s ability to demonstrate positive colleague behavior
  • Determine opportunities to demonstrate their commitment to becoming a stronger colleague
  • Contribute immediate feedback and strategies that support their continued development and the development of those around them
