We all have to work in groups to get things done, but sometimes, it can be a challenge… particularly for freelancers, who work with a new group of people on every new job. Everyone can relate to that awkward feeling when one guy takes over the conversation and you can’t get a word in edgewise. Or horrible meetings where no one seems to hear what you’re saying and you want to scratch your eyes out. And those teams that seem to come together, as if by magic, where everyone contributes a unique perspective to build a kick-ass solution. We all remember THOSE teams. How do we ensure we work on teams like that?
Learning to recognize your group habits and problem-solving style can take you leaps and bounds when working on multi-disciplinary creative teams in the office. This presentation aims to teach through an actionable self-assessment and give some helpful tips through theory and real-life stories.
