Within groups, every member of a group haws their own strengths and weaknesses/ challenges. I have made a list of four elements of group work, with two being my strengths and two being my challenges. Strengths:
Adaptability- you have to be able to learn to cope with the different members of your group. Ex. Every time that an individual is switched to a new group.
Open-mindedness- there are the opinions and ideas that differ from yours. You must be able to understand and accept these in order to be a successful group. Ex. having an idea to do this on a poster, but someone else has a different idea.
Persistence- this is the concept of continuing on with your work even if it’s hard or you don't want to do it. I have the issue of procrastinating with things that I don’t want to do or don’t personally care about.
Critical Thinking- thinking about something as would someone who doesn’t even know who you are. I have a problem with this because I’m not very good at critiquing other people's work.
I wish to improve on how I handle the challenges during this project by working together with my group members and not give up.
