Transcript of Period 3, Table 7

Collaboration & Communication is important; so use it.
Step 1: The Greeting
When meeting with co-workers, your boss, or anyone, you should always reach out your hand (shake) and smile. This is still very important to do, even if you know one or more people in the group. To start your group off, you shouldn't start getting down to business; you should always just talk and maybe try to get to know them better. You could even ask about their day if you want to, but you need to make sure to use at least five minutes of your time with a (real (not fake)) smile on you face! You also should know that any way you act you send a message. You need to know that when you start a project with new people, they look for first impressions. If you smile and shake their hand, they know you are a great person to work with. This is
Step 1: The Greeting.
Step 2: Non Verbal Communication
Non-verbal communication is eye contact, nodding, body position, and body posture. When you begin working with someone it is important that they feel listened to. Giving (comfortable) eye contact and nodding your head periodically lets the speaker know you are listening. Body position (facing the speaker), and body posture (leaning in a little), also lets the speaker know you are interested and care about their contributions.
This is Step 2: Non Verbal Communication.
Step 3: Confirmation/Active Listening
Step 4: Closing/Seal the Deal
When closing a meeting you need to thank him/her, and plan the next meeting. Before you leave remember you need to set goals for next time, and end on a good note. We don't want to have bad feelings toward our group members. When closing a meeting it is just as important as the greeting to shake the partners hand.
This is Step 4: The Closing/Seal the Deal
Taking a risk means to do something you wouldn't normally do. Do you consider yourself a risk taker? I do. You risk everything, everyday! "To live is to risk dying. To try is to risk failure. But risks must be taken, because only the person who risks is truly free." From Risk Poem by Leo Buscaglia. When you are working with a group; you risk giving ideas and having your group dislike them. You risk counting on your group to complete the work that is due the very next day.
Here is an example for you!
Do you see how they are smiling and shaking their hands? They are making great first impressions. This is what you should do when you're meeting with someone.
Norms are group agreed upon rules / expectations / agreements. These people are creating a list of rules / expectations / agreements before they start working on the real project. The reason we do this is so that we don't have arguments or get frustrated. Another example of norms is River School's 4R's. When using the 4R's we are collaborating together. Being responsible, respectful, responsive, and resourceful is always encouraged when working in a group.

This bungee-jumper is risking something. What did this person risk?
These men are smiling and they look very confident. They aren't yelling and disagreeing with each other. They worked out their differences and now don't have any bad feelings for each other.
Active listening is the step where the LISTENER politely breaks into what the speaker is saying and repeats back what the listener thought they heard. The reason we do this is so we, the listener, can stay focused and it confirms clarity. However, we should make sure we do this at an appropriate time. The goal isn't to repeat back the exact words that you heard; the goal is to make a summary of what you heard. If there is something incorrect with what was repeated back than the speaker gets to "fix" any misunderstandings. Like I said before; we are trying to have all people in the group have clarity.
This is Step 3: The Confirmation/Active Listening.
Perspective means to see something in your POINT of VIEW. Your point of view is the way you see something in your thoughts/mind. In this picture below somebody saw a bench in a different perspective. What is your perspective about this picture?
In order to work with someone, you need to create a trust bond. The word trust means confidence placed in a person. You and your group members should all trust each other. If you don't trust one another, then you can't rely on them to complete their part of their work. You also need to know that it takes years to create trust but only seconds to destroy it.
Thank You
