As a Manager you would have certain goals to achieve, this could in terms of individual performance or your teams performance etc.

Anyone and everyone who can help you achieve your objectives are your potential allies. An ally is an associate who provides assistance, advice, friendship and support your views and causes. Alliances are build over positive relationships and building a strong relationship takes time and active efforts.

Some basic steps that one could follow to build Allies at Workplace.

a. Interest Based Relational Approach : Look for common interests between your allies. Spend time with your allies talk on common interest areas, be available to listen to them, respect their point of view that may be different from your own.

Treat your allies as equals. No matter their position within your organization, all people are equal; they just have different jobs

b. Be an Ally First : There is an old saying "A problem shared is a problem halved". Try to be supportive to your potential allies in the workplace and it's worth giving at least a small amount of your time available to help your allies out when they need help.

c. Construct Trust : Trust forms the foundation for any Alliance. When trust exists in a relationship, almost everything else is easier and more comfortable to achieve.

Alliance-building is a delicate and in some way a time consuming process, But, if you want to accomplish your goals you must have allies at work.

P.S.: You can find allies in unexpected places too.
