TRIPLE III TIME: The Missing Piece

Missing PieceDid anyone ever take a class in high school or college that was all about just WORKING WITH PEOPLE?  Maybe something entitled:  Introduction To The Challenge of Understanding Working People? Or People Interaction Principles 101…201…301 and on and on!  Now don’t think I am talking about a one or two day workshop or an online/virtual series of discussions on and about people problem issues.  No, I am talking totally about the absence of specific coursework with an instructional focus dedicated to the multiple aspects of successfully just dealing/working with people?!

Now that I have your attention…think about the potential diversity of topic areas!  Different age group issues, poor/middle-income/well-to-do individual impacts, the influence of education, family dynamics and so many more.  But remember this isn’t about social work or mental health counseling, it is about surviving and hopefully even thriving as a business/organization co-worker, supervisor and leader…WORKING WITH PEOPLE.

This weeks TRIPLE III TIME message:  The Missing Piece is more of an awareness lesson instead of a list of “leader-like” recommendations.  Becoming skillful in WORKING WITH PEOPLE is NOT an easy task.  However my work experiences have taught me a few things.

  • Try to learn all of the work/non-work talents and skills of workers. It displays “caring” in a working together way and may help the organization.
  • Adopt the belief that we live in a “show-me world. And with this in mind show people that you are prepared to help with any job… any time.
  • Communicate and share business/organization information to the maximum. Secrets build “grape-vines”…and you know the rest.
  • Blend different teams of people to work on projects whenever possible. Success and progress is everyone’s job would be the lesson learned.

Customize your efforts to find The Missing Piece in your workplace.  The impacts could be GREAT!
