After several emotional outbursts on the job, I was asked to work with Sandy. Sandy had been a member of the close-nit team for several years. She was dedicated and very intelligent. However, she felt like an outsider as she believed there were several cliques on the team and she felt excluded. Sandy’s response to this was a natural one. Try harder she told herself. She signed up for extra project and took on more responsibility and consistently put in extra hours. Sandy was exhausted, overwhelmed and it was clearly beginning impact her effectiveness and her self-confidence.
We focused on several areas with Sandy.
First, we worked self-awareness to include self-confidence. Sandy needed to see herself as others began to see her.
Next, we focused on self-management. I helped Sandy see the critical flaws in her approach and we worked together to develop a strategy that helped her refocus her efforts in a way that allowed her to work much more efficiently.
Finally, a part of becoming integrated in any team is understanding and respecting the team dynamics. We developed strategic ways to help Sandy fit into the team as a natural course of the work day instead of trying to force a fit.
Sandy became more confident in her decisions, committed to managing her day in a way that allowed her to be home and present with her family in the evening and began to form some strategic relationships within the team.
