In a recent team building course that I had taken, my team and I were working together to build a bridge on an obstacle course. After almost an hour of working to build the bridge, myself and two other team members had been acting as the facilitators. Another team member had grown impatient and began talking over us. I had to let her know that if she wanted to finish the bridge, we had to work together and her talking over us was going to cause more hostility and frustration between all of us. She responded well by acknowledging her mistake and we were able to get through the task.

While being the captain of my soccer team in college there were multiple times where I had to have difficult conversations with team members. Whether it was the way they were performing off or on the field. Sometimes it was sitting down with them and having to suggest putting in extra practice with them so they perform better or offering to help studying for a class that they may not be doing the best in. In those situations I always try to pair the difficult feedback with something good that they are currently doing as well. Hey you are doing really great on shooting the ball but may need a little work on your crosses. I could stay after practice with you a few days this week and help.

The co-worker inside with me said he was just gonna open the uplock manually as he was in the action to persist I told him wait and lets find another option as that was unsafe . He was happy with that . So I got out of the door and went down and to observe the putt putt . The putt putt was not in the position to raise the door .
