Sharing expertise and knowledge as a newer member of your team can be a double-edged sword. On the one hand, your expertise and knowledge can make the team stronger. On the other hand, if you don’t handle it well, you can upset those who have been on the team longer.
- Willingly, and humbly, teach a team member a skill or method
- Provide advice and counsel on an ongoing basis which gets you invested in your team member’s success
- Give group instruction, if appropriate
- Coach a team member to improve their skills and abilities
- Take risks in offering feedback and assistance
- Stress the advantages the new knowledge will bring
