Describe a time when you encountered a serious obstacle while working on a project, team setting, or in your work environment. You may choose any professional project you have worked on during the past two years. Your answer should address all of the following questions:
- What was the aim of the project?
- What were the specific obstacles that occurred, and why did they occur?
- How, specifically, did you respond to these obstacles?
- What specific actions did you take to overcome these obstacles?
- What was the ultimate outcome with respect to the initial aim of the project?
- Why did this outcome occur? While you should completely describe the obstacle you faced, please do not focus your essay primarily on the obstacle; it is more important that you thoroughly explain your reaction and describe the steps you took in response to the obstacle. (max. 300 words) *
