Team Behavior

4.2 Discussion: Team Behavior

Getting Started

Issues such as power and politics (previous workshops) remind us that organizations are about relationships that develop for the purposes of achieving organizational goals. Use power well, and the organization can move forward well. Use power poorly, and the organization may flounder. In organizations, many individuals experience their primary relationships in teams and work units.

Have you ever been on a team that was successful? How did it feel? Did you accomplish all the goals? How was the team formed? What about being on a team that was not successful? Did you feel as if you were all alone and that each member was there to complete a specific task and not work together? Many aspects of team development and team trust exist. For this discussion, you will reflect on what has made your team experiences successful or unsuccessful.

Note: One of the later courses in the program focuses entirely on group and team processes. Thus, this assignment, within the context of organizational behavior, will give you an introduction to key themes that you will expand in the latter course.

Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:

· Explain positive team dynamics.
