What is ‘coordinating with others’?

There is an African proverb that goes “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Why is it important?

  • Poor coordination leads to suboptimal outcomes. You and your organisation will suffer.
  • When things go wrong it enables you to get back on track more quickly.
  • It gives you the ability to foresee potential problems and obstacles before they happen.

How do I become better at it?

Here are 6 ways to improve your ability to coordinate with others:

  1. Learn to be a better listener.
  2. Learn how to give feedback.
  3. Learn how to receive feedback.
  4. Become better at managing deadlines.
  5. Check-in regularly with your team to find out how they are progressing with their individual tasks.
