CÂU TRẢ LỜI MẪU:
Today, I am going to share with you my experience I had as a member of a team/of the time when I disagreed with my friend. As a student, I have to engage in a variety of teamwork projects. As a result, having disagreements with other team members is inevitable.
For topic “Describe an experience you had as a member of a team“:
We were supposed to gather a team of 3 to 4 people to work on a simulation project in our management class. The simulation worked like this: each group in our class would run a shoe production company on the internet. We had to make decisions as the simulation market changed and each group‟s performance would be compared weekly. At the end of the semester, we would have to prepare a presentation on our simulation project. – We decided to meet each other once a week to work on the project; sometimes we would discuss urgent matters over e-mails. Despite the fact that we were at daggers drawn many times, we successfully led our company to the 2nd place overall in our class, so that was not a bad effort.
For topic “Describe a disagreement that you had with a friend“:
If you have ever had a chance of working in a team to make a decision, you would know how difficult it was to make sure everyone was pulling together. Running a simulative company was not as easy as we thought. A wrong decision on pricing would significantly affect our profit. 3 of us fought for days on pricing decisions. My friends wanted our products to be sold at a premium while I preferred a medium price, targeting the mid-end market. After carefully reviewing the market itself as well as material prices, we weighed the costs and benefits of each price to come up with a final selling price. – From this experience, I learned that it was hard to persuade people with your subjective reasons. However, if your decision is backed up by sound numbers, it will be more convincing.
