It’s easy to assume other people think the same way we do, but that’s not always true, writes Belle Beth Cooper for Todoist. Here are a few assumptions about your teammates that could be holding you back.
  • They use the same tools as you. People have different methods for how they accomplish things at work. Learning other people’s methods could help you be more productive.
  • They work in the same environment. While you might work well listening to music, your co-workers may be more productive in silence. Knowing how each person focuses best will help you know when to approach people with questions.
  • You all communicate the same. You may be really good at giving presentations while someone else in your company can explain things better through email. Learning how people communicate with one another will help you become more efficient and productive.
