Re: Groups, Teams, and Leadership
Posted in Collaboration]]]]]]]]] > Forums on 7/17/2017 11:29:27 AM

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.

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.

Absolutely, you are spot on. There are some highs and lows to motivation in teams and groups. When the group takes  hit in morale it starts to impact individual members. I have always tried to tie my motivation to something outside of the group or team to maintain momentum. I love to see a finished product or outcome. Leaders have to see the finish line when noone else believes.

The input of ideas from other team members is vital to the overall success of the team. Brainstorming serves as a power vehicle for a team when it is done effectively. I value the inpuit of others as a leader. One idea can sparks a great collaboration. Responsibility in a group can be a heavy task. Noone wats to be known as the person who let's the team down.
