How do you get along with others at work?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
OUR COACH SAYS
Example #1
"I get along great with my coworkers. I am sure to maintain a positive attitude and be supportive, whether I am offering to assist someone who is overwhelmed, or if I am taking time to listen to someone who is having a challenging day."
Example #2
"I rarely have an issue when it comes to getting along with others at work. I am a conscious communicator, being self-aware, and I express myself in a kind and professional manner. A positive attitude is a must for me!"
Example #3
"As a manager, I have led a diverse range of personalities, and I can work with pretty much anyone. If, at first, I do not see eye-to-eye with someone, I will take the time to get to know them and find common ground. I find that when I have a link to someone, it's much easier to build a healthy working relationship."
Example #4
"I enjoy the people I work with, and I have made some of my closest friends in the workplace! I know how important healthy workplace relationships are, not only for camaraderie but also for accomplishing tasks and reaching goals. To be a positive contributor, I listen more than I speak. I am sure to back up my opinions with facts or examples, and I offer a hand when I see an opportunity to help."
Example #5
"I am a people person who can find a way to get along with nearly anyone. When it comes to challenging coworkers, I've learned to be glad I don't live with them! All kidding aside, if a co-worker is negative, I remind myself that the longest I'm with them is a few hours. I keep a smile on my face and get down to work without allowing their behavior choice to impact my day."
Example #6
"I get along well with my coworkers, and if occasionally something comes up, I'm sure to address any issue, so it doesn't get out of hand and create a divisive work environment. I'm supportive and strive to be a team player in all situations. More than anything, I want always to be a positive and respectful contributor, regardless of personality differences."
Example #7
"I get along with most other teachers, supervisors, students, and parents. I know my job is to find common ground with these parties, no matter what. I always look for the best in others. Even when there are moments of disagreement, I look to see the situation from the other persons' perspective - especially if it's a student. I work to find a way in which I can reach through the person's exterior and create a collaborative relationship."
Example #8
"I get along great with my coworkers. I try to maintain a positive attitude and be supportive, whether I am offering to assist someone who is overwhelmed, or if I am taking time to listen to someone who is having a bad day."
Example #9
"I love working with people. I'm flexible and approachable in the workplace, understanding that things can change quickly. I encourage open communication with my coworkers and address the concerns they may have."
Example #10
"I very much prefer working within a team, which works out great for me, since I am an anesthesiologist assistant. I am currently employed at a surgical center, where I monitor patients during their surgery or procedure on behalf of the anesthesiologist. In this role, it is crucial that I work effectively in a team, as I first must work with the anesthesiologists in communicating the patient history and physical information and understanding the medications they are administering. Then, during the procedure, as I monitor the patient, I must work with the other professionals in the room, including the surgeons, nurses, and surgical techs, to ensure the patient is properly cared for. To me, ensuring I am being a team player is one of my primary responsibilities, as it is essential to caring for the patient."
Example #11
"I thrive in a team environment and consider myself a team player. For instance, in my last role of (X position title) at (X company), we had to work on numerous collective projects on a weekly basis, such as (...) (X description of collaborative projects and how you contributed to the team's success)."
Example #12
"I'm good at listening to parents' needs. I've had positive experiences in which parents come into the parent-teacher conference with anxiety about their child's academic performance but were able to leave feeling reassured that their child is improving."
Example #13
"We aren't always going to work alongside friends or people we get along well with, so it's important to focus more on what we're working on and less on who we have to work with. I try to regularly remind myself of what is needed and expected of me and my team at work and focus my energy on that while maintaining professional interactions and relationships with my colleagues, regardless of how I feel about them."
Example #14
"I love being a medical assistant. I'm sure there are days that we all wish things would run a little more smoothly. For me, I would like to see my role as a medical assistant to be more clinical than administrative. While I am comfortable with the administrative responsibilities, like charting and communicating with outside sources, I really enjoy the one on one interaction that the clinical side allows me to have with patients."
Example #15
"I am not married and have no children at this time. So, I am pretty flexible with my schedule. If I had a choice, I would prefer the late shift, as I am a bit of a night owl. However, I am excited about the opportunity to become a part of this team and am willing to work where I'm needed."
Example #16
"I had a contract to work as a temp with nine other people. We sat in a conference room together for almost a year on this project. We shared birthdays and holidays even decorated this tiny little tree we named Tim. It was like a Charlie Brown Christmas. We grew very close and although the company only hired three of us, we stayed in contact with many of the others and made great friendships from of the experience."
Example #17
"As a counselor, I need to be able to work well with clients as well as my coworkers. I value my professional relationships as well as the client-focused relationships that I earn through my counseling sessions."
Example #18
"In our line of work, working well with people is what we do! I pride myself on building positive professional working relationships and successful patient and therapist relationships. I try my best to be flexible and open in the workplace, understanding that things can change very fast when you are dealing with a plethora of personalities. I also want to stay on good terms with my coworkers, so if I sense a conflict arising, I will be sensitive in addressing it before it escalates."
Example #19
"I believe if we think about it, each of us could remember at least one disagreement with a friend or coworker. Although I consider myself to be pretty easy-going, I am also very passionate about my patients and the care that they receive. I have been aware of disagreements between other co-workers, but really like to think of myself as more of a peacekeeper. I feel like professional people should be able to discuss things logically and come to an agreement that is satisfactory for everyone involved."
Example #20
"I enjoy working with people because it teaches you the value of teamwork. Last week we worked on a community project that identified and assisted members of the community. I developed a great relationship with our community as well as got to know my co-workers better."
Example #21
"I love working with people. I try my best to be flexible and open in the workplace, understanding that things can change quickly. I also want to stay on good terms with my coworkers, so if I sense a conflict arising, I will be sensitive in addressing it before it escalates."
Example #22
"I get along great with my fellow officers. I try to maintain a positive attitude and be supportive, whether I am offering to assist someone who is overwhelmed, or if I am taking time to listen to someone who is having a bad day."
Example #23
"If pipette operators do not pre-wet the pipette tip prior to initial delivery, sample volume can be lost due to evaporation within the tip. Aspirating and expelling sample liquid at least three times before delivery can mitigate this risk, and is especially important when handling volatile solutions such as organic solvents."
