Introduction
Other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.
– Amy Poehler, actress, comedian, and writer
Much of Amy Poehler’s work, including her time on Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation, involved her closely collaborating with a team. Just like Amy, working with others who have different perspectives and talents can not only help you successfully meet your goals, it can also inspire you (and others) to work in new ways.
In this assessment, you will continue to strengthen your relationship-building skills as you explore how artists work together to change people’s perspectives and how you can use those same strategies to inspire change in your personal and professional life. Exploring these strategies will also help you hone your self- and social-awareness skills. That’s because, to work with teams effectively, you need to consider how others are feeling and how you can encourage them to do their best work. When your team members are doing their best, you’ll find that you do your best, too.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
– Michael Jordan, professional basketball player
“It’s easier if I just do it myself.” That thought has probably crossed your mind at some point in your life or career. It might happen when you’re working alone on a challenging task, you feel like explaining your process or asking for help will only make more work for you. In some situations, it may truly be easier to go at it alone. But more often, there is a tremendous benefit to working with others, especially when those people have different perspectives than your own.
In this assessment, you will strengthen your relationship-building skills as you explore how artists collaborate with others to grow their abilities and how you can also work constructively with other people to achieve great things in your personal and professional life. As you collaborate with friends, peers, and colleagues, you will also strengthen your self- and social-awareness skills by learning to accept feedback and use it to improve your own game.

Overview
Hero stories exist in cultures around the world and when we read and pay attention to these stories, we can gain a view into a culture’s values and beliefs. The hero’s journey has common themes and story arcs as the hero evolves from an everyday person to the hero. Through conflict and triumph over these conflicts, these experiences transform the individual into the hero.
In this assessment, you will select an artifact around the hero story from Chapter 6 of Exploring Cultures. Analyze the artifact and use the elements and themes found in the story to explain the cultural values, traditions, and beliefs of that culture. Additionally, add your insights on how this culture is similar and different from your own culture and how understanding a culture’s hero story helps to widen your perspectives, which are critical to developing effective problem-solving skills.
