Provide an overview of your skills development in the team task
Skill development plays an important role in the success of the any project. An individual
who has developed his skills and abilities while doing work is the one who can succeed in his
life. The team chosen for collecting funds was amazing (Chalamwong, and et. al., 2012). It
worked at highest efficiency and reacts responsively in different situation. There were different
skills that all individuals of team have to possess while doing work. These are mentioned below -
Teamwork skills – Teamwork is an essential skill that is required for working well with
teammates or group mates. There is need for every team member to get involved within the team
for achieving the desired results. Team members are engaged for doing their work effectively
then only they are able to succeed in their task or role (Cunningham and Hillier, 2013). Good
teamwork helps in boosting confidence while contributing ideas into the project work. When our
team was doing the fundraising, we all were doing great teamwork. All members supported each
other in need. Teamwork is basically the collaborative effort of the group for achieving a comm
on goal or objective. Because of the good teamwork it was seen that our team “Brain Saviours”
raised 113 pounds. It is essential for each and every team mate to work effectively so that more
funds are collected for the charity. The teamwork skills are defined as abilities and qualities
which allows for working well with others during the conversation. Having effective teamwork
skills is dependent on the ability for communicating well and being honest (de Guzman, and
Essential Study and Employability Skills_3
Choi, 2013). When teamwork is done in empathetic manner and responsible way, it is easy to
accomplish the goals and objectives in effective manner.
Communication skills – An effective communication skill leads to good working and
achievement of goals and objectives. Communication skills helps in understanding each and
every person effectively and making conclusions. Communication skills is very important as it
makes bridge for starting any conversation. While doing work together and collecting funds,
there were various skills which are developed within teams. These include active listening,
adapting the communication style to the audiences, friendliness, confidence and providing
feedback. Active listening means the individuals within team are paying very close attention to
person who is speaking to you (Deeley, 2014). It is essential to have empathy for all team
members as it allows for better understanding and trust for each other. It is analysed that
individuals have to adopt different style of communication in different situations. For making the
best use of communication skill, it is essential to analyse the respondents and way by which they
must be communicated. While raising the fund, there are different people whom the team is
meeting with. Every person is different so there is need for talking to them in different manner.
There are some characteristics such as honesty and kindness which are developed while fostering
trust and understanding. When team workers are doing job there are some small gestures like
how they are doing, smiling, nodding and offering praise for their work is helpful for fostering
productive relationship (Dhar, 2012). It is also essential that within the dynamic of teamwork,
each and every party involved understand the work for what they are responsible for.
Research skills – The research skills means the team has enough knowledge for
collecting funds. It is essential that all the team members are using their intellectual and
knowledge while communicating message to people (Durrani, and Tariq, 2012). They have
proper knowledge about the tumour affected individuals. He research skills are helpful for
managing all work effectively.
Planning - The process for planning is the first and foremost aspect for starting any
project or work. All the team members are so effective for making plans and decisions regarding
activities involved in doing work. The ability for thinking about the process and successfully
managing activities by using effective resources for achieving goals is defined as an individual's
planning skills. Planning includes developing a roadmap which guides on completing task and
activity before actually attempting it. The planning skills plays an important role in the success
