Mission for today: offer your help to a really busy person on your team.
Every team has at least one person who is always busy. Not just normal busy. Crazy busy. As the year winds down, this person is likely rushing around trying to get everything done. He or she may even look more tired or stressed than usual.
If you have an hour or two to spare in your schedule, offer your help to that really busy person. Even if they say they have it handled, gently push back or suggest a few simple things you can do to help. Chances are they have been too busy to think about what they could delegate. Even taking care of a few small things will help that person be a little less busy and it goes a long way in improving teamwork.
When you have completed your mission, please share the results in the comments. Was your help accepted? Did your help make even a small difference?
