TEAM MANAGE- MENT This group project to me was a twice harder than others before. I was assigned as a team leader that meant double effort and triple responsibility. Furthermore, there were seven of us. Each one with a strong personality and vision what and how is right. I did not ask this role, but I decided to perceive it as a personal challenge both as a young design professional and as a  former manager. First of all, I  explained my vision of  effective teamwork to my team-mates. Especially, I  highlighted the significance and necessity of discipline. All  the time I heard jokes about that, but, honestly, a  joke is better than a missed deadline. To me, it was important to  build honest, respectful and transparent relationships between team members. At  the same time, each of us must understand teamwork evaluations that collaboration was a core for effective performance. Some of us studied new work approaches and others tried to find out that seven people in the team are not a sentence. Also, the discovery of boring writing tasks and almost daily meetings have come to the fore. It is not true to say that we had a 100% smooth teamwork processes. It is definitely true that team was tried to perform their best. For these three weeks, we learned not only some facts about security system of Moscow metro or the attitude for safety by government and business. Most importantly, we discovered the definition of a  truly effective team, and I hope will utilize this knowledge.
