5 - 7 Months


During the 5th, 6th, and 7th months of DASCorps service VISTAs have gotten over (or figured out how to work with) their issues with coworkers or their host organization and have reconciled themselves to working together despite their differences.

Some typical VISTA behaviors and attitudes:
- Cohesion around shared goals
- Resolution of conflict
- More acceptance of diversity in the group
- Reconcilation; show of affection
- Re-evaluation

Some general tips for VISTAs during this time:
- Be a leader - if you're called to the role, try it out and use it to get things done
- Be yourself
- Voice your thoughts
- Collaborate - assist each other to complete a goal or solve a problem
- Think creatively
