To not fall under group bias when doing collaborative projects. Recently I had a feasibility study. I was not a huge fan of our business idea. I learned in a psychology class that its always good to hear everyone's points as well as to work through concerns making sure you don't fall into group bias. So I asked the group if we could sit down and discuss this idea so I can try and pick away at problems that may arise. By having a respectful constructive conversations, we found and fixed many problems resulting in a better project overall.

That it is ok to just jump in. I was unsure of everything about college when I began. It was nerve racking as it seemed everyone else knew what to do. But after attending, it was clear we had all just been thrown in to figure it out. I did and by the end I was able to help other new students forge their oath through college. Sometimes you have to just jump in and learn as you go.

The most important lesson I learned in school is that I can learn from my peers as much as I can my teacher. Same as a team leader, all the members have equally important lessons to teach me and we all have different backgrounds coming to the same table.
