Do you agree or disagree with the following statement: In a team, those who do not accept others 'criticisms cannot succeed. Use examples and details to support your idea. Dear editor, that's a TOEFL essay and I would like to know whether my reasons are reasonable enough to address the prompt clearly or not? Is there redundancy in my essay?Team working is one of the most successful features of workplaces. There are many attributes that can contribute to the success of team working and its members. The capacity to accept criticism from others, though harsh vituperation, has a prominent role in a team.
However, I believe the ability to cooperate with others effectively and managing tasks efficiently are more important that the ability to tolerate opposing views.
Cooperation means the capability to work with other team participants in an effective way. A student who is cooperative can establish a better connection with her classmates in a science team. She can ask for the help of science team members and in return solve the problems of others. An employee who is cooperative and works in a business team can communicate with the rest of the team members more extensively. In addition, being collaborative even can bring other advantages to the employee, like getting a promotion.
The second factor that plays an important role in grand achievements in a team, is the ability to manage tasks. Someone who has time management and can prioritize things, can perform manifold tasks effortlessly. A team of cyclists, for example, who wants to schedule an event for the next sports race, should be able to exploit and manage the potential resources in order to hold a memorable event for the professional cyclists and audience who attend the race. The cyclists might negotiate or even dispute over choosing the proper date and site for the event. They might rebuke each other and put up a fight, as if some member of the team cannot bear criticism. However, if they have a good manager in the team, finally they can come to a conclusion over choosing an exact date and place.
All things considered, cooperation and management are the two most important attributes that a team member should possess, otherwise there would be no team at all! The tolerance to accept criticism from others is a valuable personality traits, but definitely not the most important trait to lead a team to success.
