Our education system trains us not to work in teams but as individuals to the extent that students compete with each other and start hiding their work as well as marks

Surprisingly when we get into the world of work, one of the traits that is required is team work. People start struggling with working well in teams to the extent that people on the same team start competing against each other to impress their bosses. How much more results can be achieved in an environment where each individual is contributing their strengths, abilities and skills in the team.

How do you relate to people different than you?

Many people want to be heard and don’t necessarily want to listen. We’re not really versed in the art of debate.
