I have also learned to ask for help. This course has allowed me to gain more confidence by asking for feedback on my work so that my final draft will be my best work. Sending drafts to my peers for feedback has been immensely helpful in regards to the way I conduct my writing. During our second paper, we were put into groups based on the topic we wanted to research and write about. Because it was a collaborative writing project, I was able to benefit from my peers based on the skills they already had so I improved by permitting my peers to teach and help me through the use of their skills that they already possessed.
I also built trust amongst my coworkers by having conversations with them outside of work, and getting to know them all very well. The trust I built with my team was helpful because my coworkers knew I could be relied on in times of need, whether it be taking over a shift, or completing
We negotiated roles and tasks according to our strengths and interests. We worked well together, but far from perfect. Through varies conflicts ideas were exchanged and meaningful productivity resulted (Porter, 2003). Good communication resulted from trust and respect. All members shared an equal participation which made it easier for each individual to contribute to the success of Week 3.
With these three fundamentals in tact, any team is bound to thrive. Majority of the STRIVE activities were heavily reliant on teamwork and cooperation between myself and my peers. Teamwork provides benefits in social interaction, and opening yourself up to new ideas and perspectives. It’s important in the developing process of skills we use everyday like patience, reliability, and flexibility. Essentially, by participating in the STRIVE teamwork activities, I’ve improved skills, like communication, tolerance, and I’ve gained knowledge that I wasn't aware of prior.
Each member is comfortable in finding their place and can feel a sense of belonging within the team. As a team member, I portrayed the roles of a team player and a researcher. I may not be the brain of the group, but I was very eager to help and became a reliable member that follows-through on tasks to resolve conflicts. Also, I became a researcher too, at some point. I formulated various questions and gathered the information and data from the group.
One weakness that is holding me back from being a good leader is my tendency to be a followe... ... middle of paper ... ...ot done and that everyone looked up to me and respected me because this meant they would also want to do an excellent job. If I was in the position again the one thing I would do differently is have more meetings. I think that when a group comes together you feed off of one another for ideas and this gets the brainstorming process going. Overall, I was happy with my leadership experience and thought that the team worked well together and that in the end I made them work, but they respected me, and I am happy to say we are still friends today. As I reflect back on my leadership experiences I believe that I have always tried to take initiative and get things done.
Team Cohesion, Player Roles, Leadership Team cohesion is working together with each other and staying united as group to achieve a common objective, i.e. the cohesiveness of the group of individuals that make up the team including the players, coaches and others that work with and assist the team. Hodges (as cited by Moran, 2004, p 246) emphasizes that a ‘team’ is people coming together to achieve a common purpose. While Alderer (cited by Moran, 2004, p 246) defined a ‘group’ as “an intact social system, complete with boundaries and interdependence for some shared purpose and differentiated member roles”. Cohesiveness means that the individuals feel they belong to the group, look out for each other and feel they need to bond with each other
To sum it up, friendship drove our team dynamic, and it is not only functional but also socially beneficial for us. “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is a progress. Working together is a success. ”
