There can be more but let’s focus on Six ways to show that you care for them and demand the same from them.
They are Transparent
Sharing information openly within the team and with all key stakeholders.
Looking for Convergence
When a conflict or disagreement emerges amongst two members of the team, they first look at
the areas of agreement and then follow through to solve the situation on hands.
Being internally Motivated
Whenever one of the team member is facing challenges, they become a dispenser of optimism
and proactively solve problems. They never complain or blame each other.
They Stand by their Team
Individuals with high EQ normally advocate for the team and completely support their goals
within and outside of the team.
Blow the Whistle with Comfort
If one of the team members is not comfortable with a task, situation or a project – they can be
vocal about it and can raise their concern with their team openly.
Understanding Each Other
Team members debate ideas with each other openly. They understand the importance of a
healthy debate & never fall into the trap of arguing or competing verbally.
Become Advocate of Listening
Listen actively and without judging the other person or interruption. Try to figure out ways to
empathize with the person sitting opposite to you.
Celebrate small success and achievements of your teams with open heart, believing that when
your time comes they will do the same.
Few of your team members will be introvert or extrovert for that matter, give airtime to members
who are introverts and resting time to those who are speaking more.
Talk Face to Face
If you have a problem with someone talk to them personally & not “Behind their backs”.
