SOFT SKILL OF THE WEEK IS TEAMWORK.  Teamwork involves working with others to achieve a common goal and to share responsibility with teammates for both successes and failures.  Employers are looking for workers who can contribute their own ideas, but also want people who can work well with others.

THE WORD OF THE WEEK IS COLLABORATIVE.  A collaborative effort involves working with others.  Learning vocabulary is a collaborative effort, so use your Words of the Week in conversation and writing to share what you know!
