I think that we are, and it is up to you to decide if the tastes work well together.
The past few weeks I have been introduced into a new class, 3 new groups and a whole lot of new educators. I am going to have to restrict myself to talk about the groups alone for now.
My project groups are awesome. I love being in a multi cultural setting where you learn so much about and from each other every day. And where people are generally accepting because they know that everyone is different anyway. I feel like this is a very positive contribution to a working team, acceptance and comfort.
I have not known my team for a long time but I feel very comfortable around them already because I do not feel judged. I feel like they accept me for the crazy that I am, and there might be giggles every now and then, but they mostly come from me; about me, and when they do not I am probably giggling along somewhere.
So my groups have been very open. Next to open I feel like every one in my group is prepared to do the same amount of work, and is prepared to do what it takes to get something done. This is very important to me and also for the group setting because being on different levels for those two factors can cause quite a lot of tension.
I think that the only thing challenging me at the moment is me. I can be a bit chaotic, and I communicate a lot with people but sometimes that chaos interferes and it can cause some confusion. So what I really need to work on is keeping those communication lines clean and clear so people know what I am talking about, and so I know what I am talking about, and actually remember it.
I am not sure if I would change anything. I feel like it is still to early to tell. I would like to wait till the end of this project, then I can look at everything that I have learned and make adjustments according to that. I also think that in a long space of time more things will be happening and I do not want to ignore them. So I will answer that in the future.
