Competition vs collaboration

Sordell was echoed by career coach Matthew Warzel, who said that building rapport with colleagues not only shows you’re a leader but can give you better oversight of the company’s goals. In a recession, he explained, companies are more focussed on generating revenue and cutting costs.

For people outside of sales functions it can be harder to demonstrate your worth on the bottom line but by working with other departments, you can identify projects and initiatives that you could help support or move along, he continued.

“Be open to new ideas and willing to take on new challenges, even if they are outside of your comfort zone. Analyze the market and see if there are any new opportunities that your company could capitalize on,” he added. “Bring your ideas to your supervisor and be prepared to demonstrate how they could benefit the company.”
