Introduction to Being a Good Team Player


Before we can effectively participate in a team, we need to look at our own team player skill sets.

This video talks about effective team player skills and the following exercise will ask you to reflect on your own capability in these different areas. If you find that you need to develop some team player skills, think about opportunities you might have at school, at work, or in other settings to volunteer your time.

Soft skills are best developed in practice with other people, so we encourage you to find people you can work with. You might just have some fun along the way!
