How to Become an Office Super Hero for Team Building
Don’t worry being an office super hero doesn’t mean you must jump off buildings, have super speed, set yourself on fire or wear uncomfortable, tight costumes. An office super hero possesses several characteristics that make them an asset to their staff and their coworkers. While these traits will vary with different types of businesses, some fit the mold of any type of business.
- Be Kind & Considerate
This may seem obvious, but it’s worth mentioning. Check your arrogance at the door when you get to work. Treat others as you want to be treated and you will be respected for that behavior. Also, learn how to handle difficult situations with optimism. Never draw attention to flaws in the systems without offering great way to resolve them. These behaviors won’t go unnoticed in the workplace.
- They teach lessons.
Superheroes are notorious for saving the day, but they usually give some type of wisdom before they fly away from the scene. How does this translate to your workplace? Don’t hoard information, always share it without worrying about looking like a know-it-all. If you see someone struggling with a task, don’t just save them, but offer advice on how they can help themselves. You won’t always be able to bail everyone out, but by being a team player, you can support each other and practice being better, which leads to everyone winning and building bonds as a team.
- Follow through.
This means when you pitch amazing concepts, follow through with those ideas and implementing them. When you step outside of the box and offer ways to improve the way things run or how to improve your business, it leads to promotions and making yourself indispensable. Always do what you say you’re going to, people will respect you more. Team morale will increase and everyone will benefit.
- Think Big.
While many are just focused on their workload, take time to see the bigger picture. Think of ways to self-motivate and to motivate those around you who lack focus. This will mean better success at meeting department goals and at improving revenue for the business too.
- Help others.
Superheroes generally go out of their way to help others because they want to, not just because it is the right thing to do. Take some initiative to offer help, whether with small tasks or taking on a larger project for your higher-ups.
Ultimately, it’s not about becoming everything to everyone, but by contributing to the business and remaining humble while doing so. The best way to be an asset or “superhero” to a company is to be a leader and set examples that co-workers will follow.
