ENGAGE

LESSON 5: Position Your Expertise to Contribute to Others’ Goals

Position your expertise to align with others’ goals and objectives, rather than pushing your knowledge or experience out of context of colleagues’ needs. Often, people do not care how smart you are but will engage if what you know can help them.

Core strategies:

  • Set up many exploratory meetings to ask questions, understand colleagues’ work and gain insight into how you might contribute.
  • Slowly morph your expertise to others’ goals and objectives, rather than expecting them to appreciate your experience or directly apply your skills.
  • Respect established coworkers’ expertise and perspective, generate energy and offer help.
