Collaboration is a very critical soft skill to be able to execute. Collaboration is when you work together with other individuals, brainstorming ideas, executing the project, etc. in order to complete the task assigned. It is the one soft skill that is most often mentioned as many employers value and need a team player.
You may be asking, “Why do I need to be a team player? I work better alone!” Well, to offer a rebuttal, although working well alone is a great asset being a team player can also benefit majorly. Not only will you have range in working well alone as well with others, but Collaboration enhances the way your team works together and problem solves. This can help encourage innovation and possibly a more efficient process; since you’ll have multiple people working together. Additionally, since there is more brainstorming, there’s an increased chance of success, and can help improve the group’s communication. Since you’ll have to work through the task together you’ll be listening and even learning from one another! (Which will ultimately help everyone reach their goals).
If you are a person who struggles with working with others, here are a few tips to help you flourish in that skill.
