Are you REALLY a team player?
Anita Bruzzese, Gannett, says the University of Phoenix did a survey and 95% of the respondents said working in teams served an important purpose--but only 24% wanted to be on a team.
Different generations, different agendas, different personalities--this can be trouble.
Trouble can be gossip, passing the buck, and disagreements--even disagreements that turn physical!
Why is this? Maybe because younger people are used to working alone--alone with their Facebook or phones.
Face to face? Uh-oh!
I notice this on Project Runway--when they are told they must be in a team, the faces fall.
