P3 – Working in a Team – Final

Workshop Tutor: Trudy Hillier

Date: 14th July 2013

I have learnt that the best role to have in a team is the one it needs most. This comes with some conditionals though reliant on my characteristics being strong enough to take on that role as well as whether I can do it for a particular task/in a certain context. Thus far I have not had issues adapting my role from coordinator and ME to plant and team worker.

The workshop has helped me answer that all-too-common interview question “what value can you add to the firm?” I can answer this question professionally with various previous examples ranging from fundraising Pro Bono work to my treasury role within the Breakdance society. Over and above this I feel much more confident at the idea of assessment centres and my Masters in business and law.

A key point in being a good team member has several layers of thought process. The first is to establish what you bring to the team; the second is what others bring to the team; the third is then adjusting to this so that your team is in the best possible position to succeed in the given objective.

The single most important thing I have gained in this workshop is the realisation that I do not want to work in a career that does not involve teamwork. I thrive off the team dynamic and greatly look forward to this type of work after I finish my LPC.

    Hi Sean – thank you for your final reflections on what you have particularly taken away from the Team-working workshop. The three points that you make about being a good team member clearly demonstrates your understanding of team-working theory and application. If you can think of examples that illustrate each one of those points that will stand you in good stead at interviews.

    I will notify the Skills team that you have met the required entries for P3. best wishes Trudy
