Tips & Strategies - Final Thoughts on Teamwork

The trading floor is crowded and noisy.  You'll likely have to shout so your teammates can hear you.  Keep your sentences short.

Don't speak when you can signal.  Using hand and body gestures (thumbs up, nodding head, etc.) will make sure your message is understood and might spare you a case of Laryngitis.

Finally, If your team organizes into roles, rotate roles during a break if you can.  This allows members of your team to learn multiple skills.  Don't make the mistake of believing this event is only about ending with the highest portfolio.  The true winners are people who've learned the most!
