We attend group meetings where we discuss any challenges, issues, and problems. At these meetings, we often exchange ideas or brainstorm new ones with each other and come up with the best and most creative team solutions as potential answers to those perceived problems. As a team, our second team leadership role is that of a Summarizer. We're all good recorders/communicators seeing as how everyone takes notes on team progress, team decisions, and any assignments that need to be completed in the future. We created an agenda for the team and at the end of the group meeting the recorder of our group would then distribute copies of the responsibilities we equally share across the team to each team member.
We were organised and kept constant communication to see how we were all travelling with our work. We all decided what we wanted to do at our first meeting, based on what we were most interested in, as it seemed to be the fairest way to divvy up tasks. We maintained contact though a Facebook page, and also created a Google document so we could all edit each others work easily. Everyone in the group was very open to suggestions and took advice on board. Work was shared very
On top of my Prezi slides and written proposal, I put together the bibliography of everyone’s sources and was always open for communication. I can label myself as an opinion giver because I often expressed my opinions and beliefs about what the group should be doing in order to do better our presentation, which was constructive because it started conversations where we would bounce ideas off each other. Overall, I mostly enjoyed my group members and I believed that collectively we came up with a good presentation and a good written proposal. We all walked away from being a group being more knowledgeable and feeling accomplished because we completed our task and bonded through group cohesiveness.
When working in a group, I also make sure that everyone is informed. I am usually the one sending out the emails to delegate tasks and making sure that everyone is up to speed. Lastly, I always ensure that these tasks are understood and accomplished. Being a good leader entails that you care about your group members and want everyone to be successful. 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.
On our first meeting, we introduced ourselves and from there, we learn a bit about each other’s cultures. We all come from very different backgrounds, we talked about our culture, and how far along we are in our degrees. We also took the time to get to know each other each during each meeting. Besides forming, we also focused on storming. As a group we never had conflict because we had very easy going personalities, we wanted to get things done effectively, therefore if there was a conflict we would normally use majority rules.
Having a good leadership for a team allows the whole team to work efficiently and in a well-organized way. Further, leadership is an important function of management which helps to maximize efficiency and to achieve organizational goals. Since I am a leader for this week, I asked several questions to my group members in order to get specific feedback for my performances. First, my team members said that I am deeply engaging with them and can be reached all the time. I replied all the emails and text messages as soon as I can so that I could figure out all the problems and time conflicts that our team faced to.
And we all find out somethings we don’t know about each other and we realize we formed a very diverse group in many perspectives such as work industries, job descriptions, life experiences, beliefs and personalities. And with the human resources in this group, we can help with each other a lot in this project. One thing that made our team effective was a clear unity of purpose. Each objective presented to us was broken down and discussed freely within the group until each team member had a clear idea of the objective and their own responsibilities in the project. Being an effective team we also delegated our part of work without any problems and we decide to work in a very transparent working environment which means sharing all information on time.
Our team had someone who fit every role on the survey and I think it is what helped us be so well balanced. We determined tasks based on the roles that we were playing at most of our meetings. This seemed to make the most sense and kept us moving forward in an orderly manner. At each meeting, I always felt that we made progress on the tasks that we were assigned and I felt that we each fit our roles well. We began our first meeting by talking with the parents about their concerns to confirm if they still had the same concerns as they expressed in their initial meeting per our case study.
We all have similar qualities and we all get along very well. Moreover, as far our active listening skills are we are all very good. Everyone is always engaged on who ever is speaking during the group activity. Furthermore, something I would do differently as a result of what I learned during this group session is that I would have all the member try to stay more focused on the topic that we are discussing because sometimes we get off of topic and when this happens we are wasting precious time that we could’ve been using to learn more useful information on what we are discussing in the
I think the professor helped us feel like we had some control in the sense that we each moderated a week of discussion. For this moderation assignment, we had pretty free authority to get innovative in terms of our presentations, videos, and other articles we shared. I chose to do a Prezi instead of PowerPoint for my presentation beca... ... middle of paper ... ...feel they are actively participating, rather than just observing and listening. During our posts we get to know each-other in a much deeper way. I enjoyed this section of the class, because I can share my thoughts with everyone without being interrupting, in a respectful way, and I receive the same kind of respect from my peers.
