This Is Me – How to Help Your Team Know You Better

People Leaders Podcast

Oct 20

Understanding how team members operate is the key to high-performance teamwork. But it can take some time (and painful trial and error) before you really know what makes each person tick. Through the work we do with managers and teams, we’ve developed a practical shortcut that helps people get to know each other quickly. It’s a simple and highly effective exercise we call, ‘This is me’.

This exercise gives you valuable personal insights in a safe, deep and structured way. And by sharing it with fellow teammates, you’ll fast-track the learning curve and quickly get to grips with their style, needs and challenges. We first learned this approach from Abby Falik, CEO of Global Citizen, and have put together a template you can grab right here. So, let’s explore how it works.


In this episode:

  • What are my 3 key strengths - a strength is a talent combined with skill, knowledge and experience
  • 3 words people have used to describe me - These answers can help you shape future meetings to ensure they’re effective and leave members with a feeling of energy and accomplishment.
  • The best way to communicate with me is - It’s important to understand there are different ways to communicate and some people prefer one way to another
  • The best type of meeting for me - These answers can help you shape future meetings to ensure they’re effective and leave members with a feeling of energy and accomplishment.
  • The best way to solve a problem with me - A deeper understanding of each other’s preferences and processes helps people smooth the way for more effective problem-solving.
  • The three questions you need to ask in order to support yourself

Who are you? A simple template to help your team members get to know and understand you better.
