Editors note: below is an open letter to the Concordia team written by their trainers.
Dear Concordia 2012 winter crew: Stephane, Erick, Giorgio, Igor, Bimbo, Roberto, Gerard, Mattia, Guillaume, Sebastien, Alexander, Barbara and Bruno,
Your trainers have regrouped for another Human Factor seminar. As usual we discussed the challenges of working in stressfull environments, and the individual and team behaviour that help deal with these challenges.
We put people through complex exercises and get them to reflect on the way they communicate with the rest of the team. We find individual preferences for the roles they wish to play in a team, and how they affect team dynamics.
