How to succed in team work? I was pretty sure that I knew the answer for this quastion. From my privious work experience I just follow instructions of my team leader and carried out my part of the work efficiently and on time. If I wasn't chosen as a team leader for the first project I would probably never know what the real team work is about! This is what I found out.....

I tried to define the roles in team work:

  1. There are should be a team-leader, who inspires and motivates every memeber of the team
  2. Also we need a good manager, who can divide responsibilities among the team
  3. The generator of ideas
  4. Few executors, who actualy find materials and combine their knowledge

After being the team leader I made a conclusion that I am a good manager but not a team-leader. I couldn't inspire and motivate people because I was using authoritarian management style which obviously excludes any opportunity to find new solutions using ideas of your team members. So I need to find out the methods of leading people.

To sum up, at the moment I identify team work with parnerships, where everybody is involved in the process and provides ideas not just on their given subject but also helps others to find answers

    A good entry Arina. If you maintain your self-awareness and continue to reflect on your learning experiences, you will find answers to your questions as the year progresses.
