In your discussion:
Address where you fall on the continuum of individualism and collectivism. Why is this an important concept in terms of teamwork?
Describe your experience working with an individual (or team) in which the person’s preference would fall on the opposite end of the continuum from you. For example, you might be more inclined toward individualism, and the other person might more inclined toward collectivism. How did you work effectively with this person? If you did not, what were the challenges?
Write a succinct initial post of at least 150 words. Demonstrate clarity of thought and precision in writing. Support your discussion with at least two references other than the required readings.
Read the initial posts of all your peers and respond to at least two, providing comments and questions that encourage critical thinking and insight.
