COOPERATION - SEPTEMBER'S CHARACTER TRAIT

The September character trait is COOPERATION!

 

Defined as:

  • the process of working together to the same end
  • assistance, especially by ready compliance with requests

 

Bible verse:
"Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2

 

 

How to be COOPERATIVE:

  • LISTEN carefully to others and be sure you understand what they are saying. 

  • SHARE when you have something that others would like to have.

  • TAKE TURNS when there is something that nobody wants to do, or when more than one person wants to do the same thing.

  • COMPROMISE when you have a serious conflict.

  • DO YOUR PART the very best that you possibly can. This will inspire others to do the same.

  • SHOW APPRECIATION to people for what they contribute.

  • ENCOURAGE PEOPLE to do their best.

  • MAKE PEOPLE FEEL NEEDED. Working together is a lot more fun that way.

  • DON'T ISOLATE OR EXCLUDE ANYONE. Everybody has something valuable to offer, and nobody likes being left out.
