COMMUNICATION & COOPERATION AMONG WORKERS
To ensure smooth communication within the organization, and create a cooperative and harmonious work environment, every member of staff should take note of the following.
1 Act as a Team Player Within the Organization
・Do you appreciate that office work can only be accomplished with the cooperation of colleagues ?
・Do you understand your role and position in the overall organization ?
・Do you compete against colleagues and co-workers in related sections ?
・Do you deliberately distance yourself from supporting other colleagues in situations where you know you could, lest it interfere with your own work ?
2 Constantly Update Others on your Work
・Do you often request help from others at little advance notice, without keeping them updated on your work ?
・Does friction ever arise between other departments and yourself as a result of a lack of communication over work plans ?
・Do you make full use of office meetings to update others ?
3 Understand and Respect the Position of Colleagues in Related Sections
・Do you constantly make decisions or act in an independent manner without consideration for colleagues and co-workers in related sections ?
・Do you criticize your colleagues and co-workers in front of other staff or in public ?
・When making a request, is your attitude and language such that you have taken the other person's agreement for granted and you expect them to accede to your request ?
・In the course of meetings, do you speak and behave in such a manner as to show little regard for the position of others ?
・When exchanging ideas, do you stubbornly stick to your own point of view ?
・Do you provide your colleagues with useful information and support ?
4 Work Positively Towards Good Interpersonal Relationships
・When approached by colleagues and co-workers on work and personnel matters, do you readily cooperate with and support them ?
・Do you listen to the criticism and ideas of colleagues and co-workers, and admit to your mistakes in a candid manner ?
・Do you converse with your colleagues on other topics than work ?
