Test - Competency for co-operation

Are You Co-operative

There are few people who have a job at which they do not need other people. We need cooperation both in our personal and working lives, and it is more advantageous to solve certain problems by agreement and cooperation than by other means. The ability to cooperate is one of the competencies without which it is very difficult for us to succeed in the labour market.
The atmosphere at work or in a team has a lot to do with many factors. And one of them is our own attitude to cooperation as such.
