Groups, Teams, and Leadership Original post: Thu 5/11/2017 at 9:25 AM

Are you a team player?

What is the difference in a group and a team?

Discuss your experience as a team member (positive or negative). Were you the team leader?

Why are groups/teams so important to organizations?

Leadership, groups, and teams go hand in hand. I am a team player and a leader. To be a great leader, you must be a team player. You must see the bigger picture even when obstacles are in front of your horizon. I have had positive and negative experiences in leadership. A group can be three or more individuals that work together as a department or unit. Within a group, individuals may behave in distinct ways, use unique or specialized terms, or display symbols that have meaning to that group(saylor.org). A team is a group of individuals that come together for a common goal or purpose.

 

In my experience, I love being a part of a team. There is strength in numbers and when a team of likeminded individuals come together with a common goal the potential for success increases significantly. I have been a member of a team that has a negative outlook. That is a very hard position to be in, because I have had to try to be a catalyst for a mindset change for adults. When people believe that a task is impossible their outlook can begin to affect the leader. I started feeling self-doubt. The only way I could overcome was my belief system. I stand in my faith. Sometime my faith may get a little weak, but I ask for strength and I keep working. My leadership style transformational and participative. I like to inspire my team and engage their feedback. Groups and teams are imperative to organizations. They give an organization a competitive advantage. Teamwork supports diversity and inclusion. Groups provide a plateau for brainstorming and innovation.

As a team player, I understand the concept of working together for a common goal and the importance of synergy.  One of the

biggest difference between a group and a team is the way they operate to achieve a goal. A group can be made up of three or

more people who are a part of a department or unit but who work independently towards their common goal.  A team can be

made up of three or more people who each bring their skills to the table to work together to achieve a common goal.  Recently,

I worked on a team made up of four church members to develop a plan for an event that would provide free services to the

homeless.  Each team member had experience in some area of public service. Together our team developed a plan for a

successful event. Groups and teams are important to an organization because they bring people together from diverse

backgrounds, ethnicity, educational and skill levels to achieve a common goal for the good of an organization.

Synergy is important, but it is hard to achieve at times. I have been a part of teams that have a lot of stong personalities. Staying focused on the main goal can be a difficult task. Likeminded individuals with differents strengths working as a group can be a huge success. I am glad to hear that your team was able to pull off a successful event. It is an a blessing for a gropu to come together for a good purpose. I agree groups and team and inportant to organizations. They are the innovation for an organization.

I am a team-player. In the Navy, working together is a huge part of the organization. Being a team player has big influence on finishing a project. I give input on team projects in order for my team to have plenty ideas about how we can succeed in our tasks. 

A group contains individuals who have been put together to accomplish something, but they will least likely work together. A team contains individuals who all share common team goals and are committed to accomplishing the goals that are set for the team.

My experience as a team leader progresses with every experience I have. When I am putting together an event for an organization, I ask members of the team do they have any ideas that would help the organization become a success. A team that I am apart of were once working on a water run event to help raise money for people with mental disabilities. By being a team member, a lot of pressure was put on me. I had to make all things were in place for the event. It was very stressful, but in the end, it was a great success. 

Groups and teams are very important to organizations because it's take many people to run an organization. Many opinions and ideas can be given by people. One person will become stressed if pressure is put on them. This is the reason people form teams or groups in order to succeed in the business.
