This chapter explores the way individuals interact. There are discussions about what makes a good team including leadership and followership, particularly in an emergency healthcare setting. Emotional intelligence is explored as a concept to encourage both self-awareness and self-management. A new tool is introduced that can be used in a team, on a formative basis, to explore the team work itself, the decision-making, situational awareness, task management, and information transfer. The way hierarchy can influence behaviour is discussed; this includes both the approachability of the leader and the assertiveness of the followers. Regular real examples are used.
