Task 2: Teamwork
In today’s connected world, no matter how isolated you are a friend is always just a few thumb swipes away. Learning how to work with friends is a vital skill to have. Important skills to have include:
Communication is a necessary component of teamwork. Your language classes are particularly useful for developing this skill.
Every team needs to solve problems. If you’re good at maths you’re probably a good problem solver.
When working in a group, it’s important to keep an open mind. Practice silence – you’ll learn more about this in the 4th quest.
By thinking critically about a situation – examining all sides of an issue, reflecting on past experiences, and listening to what other group members have to say – you could arrive at a breakthrough that moves your team forward in new and exciting ways.
Working in a team can be challenging at times, but more often it is a great opportunity to uncover creative ideas, share different perspectives and experiences, as well as enhance your own skills. If you treat each group project as a learning experience, you can help foster a more productive team environment.
A leader who works well with others – both within his or her own group and in other groups – can help spread knowledge and resources, develop new leaders and contribute to a team’s success.
