This proves true because the people I talked to must have felt that I was more interested because they were more open about their opinions and that made me feel more comfortable to do the same thing. Even though what we were talking about wasn’t really that important it had more meaning than a conversation in which these behaviors were not practiced. Not all times did my eye contact and smiling get the response I hoped for like those instance, but there were times where I ended up having to compensate for
From my observation, I noticed that people might have an idea different from his idea, but we all just accept his idea. This is because everyone is trying to get along well with every other person, and trying to show support. In this stage, team members begin to discuss their responsibilities, who reports to whom, and how things will interface. Team members also begin to identify with one another, this brings about trust within the team. There is also a cohesive bond within my team and conclusions are reached quite easily, and by easily, I mean we arrive at solutions without conflicts.
I was at first skeptical about doing charcoal rubbings on fabric because I have never done it before but I later r... ... middle of paper ... ...uckily Eliza and Yael liked talking to people and decided to do more of the talking. We rehearsed and timed our presentation until we were happy with it. Overall, I was very happy with my group’s performance in group work and in the final presentation. We worked very well together and I could see we all listened to each other when we presented any ideas whether it was good or bad. I was also quite happy with my own performance.
As I look back, my sense of creativity did not really leave me, even though it felt so. When people saw my artwork, I loved the smiles that appeared on their faces -the comments were nice too, but I do not see that as my primary happiness-. Art has became my second sense, its my means of expressing and even though I’m still growing. I know I will struggle but that will not be my reason to give up my goals. The time I’ve spent trying to go back to drawing and receiving great feedback, helped me realized that art was something that can make me happy.
I was not playing with my pen or smiling during the interview. I was able to look at my client and be professional about the situation that my client was trying to explain to me. The other things that I had notice about myself during the video was, I had lead forward toward my client and was actively listening to him. I was able to give him empathy not sympathy toward his issues. The whole time I did not feels that I was not able to speak freely because the client is my family member.
We would all know everything about one another, there would be nothing new to learn. Everyone is different for a reason and if someone can't accept that, then they are not worth your time or energy. To be yourself is a wonderful thing, and I am glad that I realized this now instead of later. I am enjoying myself and getting to live a less stressful life. I am so thankful to be able to share my story and hope that it will help everyone in some way.
I am generally a good person; I morally try to do things for others, as long I can do it without affecting me or my family. For example I use to dedicate time to others needs. But I started thinking that I was pleasing everybody too much and I never had time for myself. As soon I changed my point of view, my moral now, is thinking first in my own necessity and later in others. After finding a balance in this matter, I feel more satisfied in life.
As for the group members, they acted very kind and respectful to me. Something I did during this group session that made me feel proud of my self was that I was able to help my group members understand the main idea of the objective for the proposal. However, something that I did during the group session that made me unhappy was that I didn’t know how to help my group with the proposal in the section where we have to write processing
As a group we never had conflict because we had very easy going personalities, we wanted to get things done effectively, therefore if there was a conflict we would normally use majority rules. During the first few meeting, we took the time to discuss how we would normally understand, and solve conflicts. Most of our thoughts had similarities, however, we took the time to talk it through and have everyone understand and on the same page. As a group, we knew that we were individuals, and we all have different mindsets as we are in different places in our lives. However, as a group we manage conflict really well.
With each of us having separate leadership qualities we were able to push and support one another to achieve balance in different areas. Because of this, there was no issue of power struggle within the group, as there were no high or low in status. Throughout the duration of the group report, each of us has very tight schedules and many academic papers to juggle. Hence, we did not manage to meet the first arbitrary deadline set for our first draft. But instead of judging or coming down hard on each other, we communicated to one another and showed empathy and support to those who have pressing issues at hand.
