Teamwork – Alison Ashdown
Student: Alison Ashdown
Teamwork is the skill of acknowledging that everyone is working together, with respect and accountability, as a unit towards the same end goal. As a prior engineering consultant, I worked to ensure that all parties had a say in the execution of the project and that space was given to discuss issues or alternative solutions. Success depended on empathetic communication and acknowledgement that were were all respectfully working towards a common goal. I remain respectful and humble in my conduct as a team player while also providing leadership encouraging new ideas and solutions with the input of my peers.
