7/9 (Sat) How Can you Build Credibility with your Team? (Host: Lewis Lu)

文章 Lewis Lu »

Hi everyone,

Recently, some of my students will be graduating from the college and they feel panic to shift the role from a student to an employee of a company. As we all know, it is quite difficult for a new employee, whether it is fresh from the school or job shifting, to build our trust with the new team members. How do you do it?
Let's share you thoughts on 7/9/2022.

1. Did you remember the first day you stepped into the new office with the new team members? Did those members trust you? Please share your thoughts and memories.

2. What obstacles did you have when you cooperated with other team members? How did you solve those obstacles?

3. If you don't have much background knowledge for a project and you are assigned to cooperate with other team members who have more knowledgeable than you, what's your action plan to build up the trust with others?

Session Two: Manager

1. Share your thoughts (or memories) when you are promoted to a leadership role. Do you think that your team members trust you? why or why not?

2. If the team members don't trust your leadership techniques or style and they refuse to have communications, how do you build up the trust with those team members? Please share your personal stories and experiences.

3. As we all know, competition and cooperation between the managers can be existent in a corporation, how do you build up the trust with "other managers" who compete with you in the corporation? Please share your personal stories and experiences.

I lucked out that in the first job of the career, one of my teammates, who sat right beside me, attended the same high school as I; we even have a common high school friend! That’s the icing on the cake and that helped me fit in with colleagues right away.

Challenges and setbacks are part and parcel of work, especially when it involves teamwork. Everyone has their unique working style and personality, which we as a teammate need to adapt ourselves to. Their priorities or preferences toward work could also be a far cry from us. It’s no exaggeration to call making others do what we want one of the most important survival skills for the workplace.

My personal tip of achieving productive teamwork is never treating anybody at the workplace as a potential enemy or competitor. View them as a potential friend instead! That mindset makes it more likely for me to act supportively towards others when they are in need. Teamwork is a two-way street; a friendly mindset facilitates a quid pro quo, while a competing one potentially leads to tit for tat.

employee: focus more on SKILL
mid-level manager: focus more on the ability of COMMUNICATION
high-level executive: focus more on the ability of CONCEPTULIZATION

I think that a good team leader not only makes things happen, but also makes people love to join.

First of all, if a manager wants to get the ball rolling, he must be supported by his team members and fulfill the expectation from high-level executives, so being a professional of integrity is basic requirement.

Integrity requires honesty and objectivity, implying not merely honesty but fair dealing and truthfulness.

However, I think male and female managers differ a lot. I notice female managers are less political, because we tend to think “my work should speak for itself, ” while male managers are more comfortable to play around political games and form their allies for better communication.

Last but not least, don’t just take credits. Remember to give credits to others.
