Today I had my Organizational Behavior lecture. This is one of the few classes that I genuinely enjoy every single time I walk in the door. Today’s lecture was eloquently presented and tackled the topic of interdependence in groups. Professor McCarthy (the OB lecturer) talked about the difference between a team and a group. I am glad to say that I am humbled to be able to be a part of this internship; and, that the Marsh Associates are truly a team.

Today I would like to show my appreciation for my peers and all that they do. What makes us a team? There is no clear cut leader in the group. We all have equal and ample opportunity to use our personal strengths the the advantage of the group. We have an eclectic group of people. Everyone comes from a different social and ideological background and has interesting takes on experiences. This allows for us to get a very complete view on the issues that we try to tackle.

Being a team also has other perks; for example, we always have fun with what we are doing. Trust me, even cutting cake can turn into a comical event. But the greatest perk of all is that we always have each other’s back. Everyone is in it for each other and no one is left out to dry.

The difference between having a team and having a group can be boiled down to one thing: if you miss it when it is gone. I can say with utmost certainty that when the semester is over, I will miss being with this team. Thank you for being awesome!
