Getting Along with Coworkers

As a traveling healthcare professional, you will work with a variety of people at each location. Most of us spend more time with our coworkers than our own families. Because of this we must learn how to deal with coworkers in the appropriate manner. Getting along with coworkers is just as important as getting along with the boss.  And because there are usually so many more coworkers than supervisors, it requires additional effort. However, it is usually just a matter of tolerance, respect, and courtesy. Below are some tips to help you get along better with your coworkers.

  • Don’t use coworkers as therapists.
  • If you borrow it, return it. If you borrow it more than twice, get your own.
  • If you have a problem with someone, talk to THEM about it, not everyone else in the office.
  • Focus on YOUR work, not what other people are doing. Supervising output is your boss’s job. The only exception is when someone else’s low productivity is affecting your own.
  • Understand the limits of your authority. Don’t overstep your boundaries.

These tips should help maximize our relationships at work and make it more enjoyable for everyone. Good relationships can make or break your assignment!
