Using Social Intelligence for Team Success: Personal Checklist

Do you use your social and emotional intelligence to the benefit of your work team every day? Do you give your best effort regardless of the role you play? Are you willing work professionally with every team member, and use your interpersonal skills to help the group succeed?

Check the list below to see how you are doing at using your social intelligence to become an effective team member at work.

 1. I don’t mind taking suggestions from others.

2. I prefer to work with others instead of on my own.

3. I pay attention to my teammates’ feelings and empathize when they’re upset.

4. I am more cooperative than competitive.

5. I effectively present my ideas and am able to influence others.

6. I accept and give feedback well.

7. I enjoy working with people who are different than me.

8. I pay full attention when I’m listening.

9. I compliment people for their accomplishments.

10. I trust other people and believe that others work as hard as I do.

If you can say that you do these ten items almost always, you already have well-honed social intelligence skills.

If instead, you look at this list and think “sometimes” or “never” for most of these items, you might want to spend some time on your social skills, such as empathy, listening, showing concern, and being “attuned” to others’ feelings. For areas in the list where you feel you are lacking, make a list of specific behaviors that you could improve. For example, if you do a poor job complimenting people for their accomplishments, you may want to set a goal for yourself to: Personally acknowledge my co-workers’ good work during our team meetings.
