In this talk, we will discuss the importance of teamwork to organize goal accomplishment and the challenges that team members can face. By exploring different types of conflict that can happen in teams, we will aim to distinguish between conflict that can help improve team effectives from conflict that is toxic to a team. We will also discuss two important practical means of becoming more effective team members. First, we will focus on personality and self-awareness, including discussion of an online tool that can help towards this end. Secondly, we will discuss the important role of feedback - both for seeking feedback about oneself, as well as the skill of providing constructive feedback to team members.
