There are several different roles within a team;

So who am I, what role would I take in a team. We did a little test with Bridget to find out what kind of person you are. This is how mine came out;


Quiet, friendly, responsible and conscientious. Committed and steady in meeting their obligations. Thorough, painstaking and accurate. Loyal, considerate, notice and remember specifics about people who are important to them, concerned with how others feel. Strive to create an orderly and harmonious environment at work and at home.

To be honest this is not fair off at all. I used to be an assistant manager in a retail shop and I recognise some of those attributes from when I was working and others from since I have started university. I find with each module and feedback each point is becoming more prominent and stronger. I am gaining more belief and confidence in my self.

After taking part in a group run project I think I can identify myself as a co-ordinator judging from the role I automatically fell into during the project. I found I took control of situations and pushed for dates and completions in order to achieve a good final result and it paid off, I ended up with a Distinction. Hopefully I will continue in this manner and earn myself a co-ordinators role within a games company as head of a team.
