This is the time to proofread carefully to correct any spelling or grammar errors, check APA formatting as needed, and verify that all assignment requirements are met. Each team member posts a comment to indicate that he or she has completed this step no later than mid-day on day 7 (Monday).
Respond to each of the following questions with a minimum of 50-words each. Give each question careful thought. Use writing skills that would be expected in a professional work environment—write in complete sentences with correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

2. What strengths do you believe you will bring to your Learning Team? (Consider academic skills, communication skills, flexibility, leadership ability, and interpersonal skills.) How will you exercise these strengths to meet team goals?
|I feel like I am a really good leader and most people usually like to listen to what I have to say. I have been a manager for |
|almost 10 years and feel that I am very well respected. I am also a very good communicator and have the ability to accomplish any |
|task that is set in front of me. I will use these skills to lead my team and work with my team to reach the answers that we need |
|in order to make it through this class. ...
