Teamwork – Thomas Mai
Student: Thomas Mai
Teamwork is a critical element in today’s workplace when collaborating with coworkers. In a recent culminating project, I was placed into a group with strangers that I have never worked with before. To be successful team I knew that we had to clearly define team roles and operational norms; this included meeting times, and understanding each others strengths. By understanding our strengths, I delegated my team members to roles that they were familiar with. Conversely, in aspects where certain team members fell short, other team members stepped in to aid. Our group had integrity which helped us define a clear goal; we wanted to complete the project with a good mark. Over the span of 2 months, we slowly accumulated our works and pieced it together at the end. We had completed our assignment to an incredible standard and successfully completed the project with a good mark.
