I have the strength to be logical enough in thinkingto ascertain how to deal with the issue for the safety of everyonewho is involved.
Whatdid I learn from my challenges?
Despitethe strengths and abilities, I identified to possess as a person, Ias well noticed several challenges in the simulation exercise. Thedifferent people in a team responding to an emergency have differentperspectives, and it’s hard to know the best and work on it. Thereis also a challenge of communication between the response team, acase that may worsen the situation. There arises a challenge wheresome members of the group fail to cooperate or respect the ideas ofothers a case that may make it hard to accomplish the intendedemergency issue. In such a case, it was particularly difficult sincecooperation from each member was crucial towards achievement of theteam charter goals.
