What Are the Benefits of Interacting with Others?

– increase your knowledge of what is occurring at your fast-paced organization, positioning you to ride the wave of change versus being surprised and adversely impacted by change.

– build clearer opinions as to the competencies and capabilities of your colleagues as well as organization direction.

– increase your productivity by utilizing the information gained from your increased knowledge about the business and your colleagues.

– influence decisions that your colleagues are considering by sharing information, opinions, and thoughts.
