As we begin to work as a team in a work-from-home setup, it is indeed difficult to express it to our superiors where we feel stuck. Sometimes it may happen that our job is dependent on someone’s job and therefore, there can be a relay of delay that may happen. In such cases, communication is the key. And the Stucks feature at the OpenGrowth Hub does exactly that. Let’s see the importance and features of Stucks.
Are you feeling stuck at work?
For a variety of reasons, many people feel stuck at work. It might be difficult to leave a job you like and take a chance on a new one or any other form of change. If you find yourself in this predicament, you can benefit from some suggestions on how to improve your working environment or move forward.
Reasons for feeling stuck at work can also be due to depending on others while working. As a team, there is always a domino effect that takes place. One passes on the workload and it is a well-distributed and connected network at the end of the day. But what happens when someone is supposed to work and they don't? Or what happens when someone does finish their task but it doesn't reach you?
The latter can happen due to multiple reasons. You may not want to appear intrusive or bothersome by repeatedly asking for their work. Furthermore, they may be unaware that your work is dependent on their work. And hence the root of feeling stuck in your work is miscommunication!
How can this problem be resolved?
Ask anyone at your office how they would like to be treated at work. They want to be treated with dignity and respect will most likely be at the top of their list. Simple, yet powerful behaviors can be used to convey respect.
The most crucial engagement you can have with the everyday folks who populate your work life is to demonstrate respect. When dealing with individuals, here are some ways to show respect. When we respect an individual we automatically become careful with our words around them and therefore, communication becomes effective.
A person or a group of people receives feedback on the impact of their actions on another person, the organization, the customer, or the team. Make sure your input has the impact it deserves by delivering it professionally.
If you can avoid a defensive attitude when dealing with regular people, your feedback can make a difference. The difference between good work relationships and disagreement and hard feelings is how you approach and deliver feedback in interacting with individuals.
The Stucks feature at the OpenGrowth Hub does exactly that. Employees can log in to the areas that they are stuck in which is visible to the team and hence there is shared responsibility at work.
