In the workplace is not always natural to build allies:
People often feel like they should know everything: encourage people to seek each out and use their best talents with each other and be candid about it. The concept of candor: Culture that promotes candor in the right way; where people feel like they can be honest and open.
How to make allies in the workplace and overcome the competitive element:
A company that characterizes its values; specifically about sharing talents and skills will create that culture. Healthy relationships are based on an ebb and flow of mutual support done over time. Find ways to be helpful and be specific.
Have to know what you need. What do you actually need: take the time out to establish what you actually do need. There is power in being specific. People have forgotten how they come across to other people, be conscious of how you present yourself. Positivity in a work context starts with yourself and your own relationship. In a work context, you have to build a coalition of like minding people.
What are one or two things a person could do differently to set themselves up for greater mutuality:
Get specific on your top three properly interrelated talents. Communication; notice how you speak, the words, notice the melody of the words in keeping others involved in the communication.
