October 16, 2013


Group projects can get really intense, especially when we all have different thoughts and opinions on a topic and we all are unwilling to step down. But what I found that is even scarier than unable to convince each other to agree with oneself, is unable to get one’s point across because either he/she experiences language problems/not speaking up, or people refuse to listen.

There were times when we all got a little bit tired and frustrated and the atmosphere intensified, but I am glad in the end we all chose to patiently listen to each other, and to respect other’s viewpoints. I am happy we overcame and passed that phase when six voices were flying over the room and our faces were all red and we were all a bit emotional, and then listened, because that was when I realise ‘wow, he actually has a really good point! that I have never thought of’, and I learnt from him.

I think I understand better the concept Paul has always been trying to deliver to us all: cooperation is better than competition within an organisation. Always cooperate.
