The Importance of Teaming

“Teaming is a verb. It is a dynamic activity, not a bounded, static entity. It is largely determined by the mindset and practices of teamwork, not by the design and structures of effective teams. Teaming is teamwork on the fly. It involves coordinating and collaborating without the benefit of stable team structures, because many operations like hospitals, power plants, and military installations require a level of staffing flexibility that makes stable team composition rare. In a growing number of organizations, the constantly shifting nature of work means that many teams disband almost as soon as they’ve formed. You could be working on one team right now, but in a few days, or even a few minutes, you may be on another team.”

“Your body clock, or circadian rhythm, governs how your body is in sync with all of life, and when you make a shift in that, there will be residual fallout,” he says. “By waking up 45 minutes earlier, you proactively created at-home jet lag. If you keep pressing it for several days, your body will eventually sort itself out, but there is a more graceful way to do it.”

Living With Accessibility Issues | Gradifying

one step too many

“Accessible housing in Kingston is in short supply. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act outlines regulations for ensuring that public spaces are accessible; however, it does not require landlords or rental agencies to provide accessible accommodations. When Lisa was searching for an apartment in Kingston for the first time last summer, her first barrier was being able to find an apartment that simply claimed to be accessible. However, although some apartment listings have a check box indicating whether or not an apartment is “accessible,” accessibility is a term that is poorly defined. For those who have not been affected by physical accessibility issues, certain aspects of a building’s infrastructure simply do not register as barriers. After confirming with landlords that there were no stairs, Lisa would often arrive to learn that there were steps, and as Lisa explained, “Even one step is enough to keep you out.” Here is a link to a video clip that Lisa recorded as part of her art practice which illustrates an issue of accessibility that is a regular part of her life.””
