How well can you demonstrate your commitment to achieving a shared goal as part of a team?

Teamwork can be broken down into the following skills: co-operating; contributing ideas; persuading and negotiating.


•    Co-operating – demonstrating active listening and providing support for others in a group environment.
•    Contributing ideas  - giving your thoughts and opinions to the group on a new design concept.
•    Persuading – having the ability to convince others to take appropriate action.
•    Negotiating -  having the ability to discuss and reach a mutually satisfactory agreement with others.
