Team Work Skills

To manage a project be it student based or secondary school or professional work, to make sure that there is a constant workflow you really need to think about delegation and how to keep a constant structure, focus on delegation and maintaining a constant structure and accountability to everyone so people are following up and showing what they have done for the project. When in recruiting you to need to think about ability level, what you need them to do, what risks can happen after recruiting that member their commitment level to the project, and how they best communicate. These are considerations you need to make for the individual member so you have an understanding of how to best work with a member. For an autistic person communication can be very difficult, and that is why it is very useful to learn communication, a strategy that was taught to me is active listening. There are several steps to go through for active listening

Step 1 : if your the one initiating the conversation, ask a question about what you need to know about the conversation

Step 2 : listen to the dialogue response with the ability to learn something from the goal

Step 3 : Figure out what type of clarification, or whats the best resolution to this conversation you need

Step 4 : on whatever they said ask about a follow up conversation about the topic

Step 5 : if you need to offer your opinion for the conversation , frame it in the following structure , what ,how, and why is it the case and if it is negative how you can improve it from your pesrpective

Step 6 : listen to their counter points if they give any , assess if a response will be constructive, if it isnt acknowledge it respectively and move on and if it does give the response
