From the 2012 CodeConnexx in Indianapolis, LB Denker (of Google and Etsy) talks about how to be a part of a team but also be yourself. From the official conference description at Just because there is no "I" in team doesn't mean you should lose track of the"me". Teams can be an amazing collaboration of individuals working towards a common goal, a very supportive environment to learn and grow, and a place of comfort. They can also become a place to hide, a group where you become buried, or a place to surrender your individuality. This talk is about what I have learned through the years on how to retain your individuality and make working together in a team an all around positive experience.
