When we join with others to get a job done what role can we play to contribute our best effort? Certain points stand out: I don’t want to bring my anger or fears to the situation; they’ll be plenty of that from the others. I want to listen to what others have to say so I take in all the different points of view, so I understand what the group is thinking. When things get chaotic, I can remind everyone our frustrations aren’t getting us anywhere. I can lend support to others where my talents apply. I can carefully word my constructive criticism so as not to offend others. I can remain calm and open when others criticize me and not try and defend my position, instead, letting them know I appreciate their point of view. These are just a few of the ways we can contribute to a well-managed project.
