Teamwork Strategies from an Interpersonal Learning Style and Organized Personality Perspective

Each person possesses unique experiences and differing backgrounds to help shape who he is and how he interacts with the population. Even though individuals have unique personalities and learning characteristics, they can find common ground to work together as a successful team. It is imperative that each individual focuses on the ultimate goal of the team. However, this does not mean that the goal must be achieved through one certain type of process. The team must respect each team member, make an allowance for experimentation, and commit to the project at hand. This writing explores ways to form a cohesive, successful team from the Interpersonal learning style and the Organized personality perspective (Carter, Bishop, & Kravits, 2007).

Learning Style Team Strategies

In the GEN/200 class readings and discussions, it is loud and clear that understanding and recognizing strengths and weaknesses quickly and informatively is helpful for the individual's knowledge, confidence, and intellectual growth. We learn from Carter, Bishop, and Kravits (2007) that individuals fit in to learning styles and personality spectrums. This allows the individual to choose a starting point toward excellent teamwork and a successful outcome.

According to the Multiple Pathways to Learning assessment (Carter, Bishop, & Kravits, 2007), there are certain indicators that catalog individuals in to a more prominent learning style over another. As an Interpersonal learning style, it is important to note the innate talent and ability to work with and understand people. This is a superior start to working well with others and producing high levels of success within a team.
