    Hi, I'm hoping to apply next year, and I have quite a few extra curricular activities, but I'm not sure how I'd display teamwork and leadership, as I know they're both quite important?
    Any ideas on activities I could do?
    Thanks for any help

    Well what ones have you done? Most things probably show some qualities about you. Stuff like sports teams, duke of ed, show teamwork. Leadership could be being Captain of a team, or Prefect, or something like that, or just a time in another activity when you had to take the initiative and direct others.

    I never really understood why people always try and show both teamwork and leadership. The two rarely go hand in hand. Leaders are often terrible at working in a team.

    But presumably doctors need to have both leadership and teamwork skills since at times they may lead a team whilst at other times they may just be a team member.

    Having a bit of trouble with this as well, don't really do sports so I dunno how to show these skills either.

    In school we have Cafe Sci. I'm on the board so it involves working a team while sometimes taking the lead. Maybe think about setting one up?

    Well I presume you have to be able to do both. There's a time for leadership and a time for being a "team member".
