Reflection

I maintained consistent communication with my team members regarding meeting times and
reminders, upcoming deadlines, and content feedback for each assignment. My feedback was positive, but honest, feedback. As team leader, I was open to their suggestions because everyone’s feedback gives you a different perspective on how you view your own work.

This project marks my first of many team leader projects. I enjoyed the role because I strengthened my team leadership skills to apply to the rest of my projects in the coming years. Also, this project sparked my interest in an UI/UX career.
