CONTENT: UNDERSTANDING TEAMS. Application of course concepts to TEAM DEVELOPMENT (i.e., the evolution and development of your assigned LEAD 302 Project Team) this semester and how you all addressed the 5 Dysfunctions of Teams (B&G). FOCUS ON YOUR ENTIRE TEAM, and especially on OTHER team members. (Use their names.) 12 points. (12 %)Prompt: “Assume you are team development consultant hired to observe and constructively critique your team. Using concepts from the course, analyze the development of your assigned Project Team in LEAD 302 from the beginning of the semester to the present. Explain how the diversity of your team – or lack thereof! – (temperament, interaction style, teamplayer style, EI capacities etc.) impacted how your team developed and influenced your team’s dynamics and the interactions between its members.” You must specifically(1) demonstrate an overall understanding of your team’s processes and development, focusing on all team members (including examples of individual and group behavior) – 6 points;and(2) demonstrate the extent to which your team overcame “the 5 dysfunctions of a team” (or not!) – 6 points.Preparation: If you reflect on your team and its evolution “objectively,” how can you describe and explain the evolution, processes, dynamics, conflicts etc. which characterized your group, using material learned in the course (personality type, temperament, interaction style, team-player style, stages of team development, emotional intelligence, and the 5 dysfunctions of teams etc.)? This paper should focus on the evolution of your team over the entire semester (including the retreat) and especially how you engaged your assigned task objective of designing and facilitating a teambuilding workshop for the class.TIE IN – and cite! – EXPLICIT REFERENCES TO COURSE MATERIALS. (5D, T&T, Berens Workbooks, in-Class PPT’s/Presentations). I expect you to be able to make direct connections (i.e., quote from your sources to substantiate your observations and validate your claims.) For example, don’t just say “So-and-so was an In-Charge Stabilizer” or “So-and-so had a Parker Communicator-Collaborator style” but connect specific things they said or did to specific characteristics of that personality type or team-player style from your readings. Think of your final as a DESCRIPTION and DIAGNOSIS. For example, you might point out that “Our team consisted of 2 catalysts, 1 theorist, 2 improvisers & 1 stabilizer.” … But you must also go beyond pointing out such facts to explain the observed significance or implications of those facts: How did they specifically influence/impact the development of and interactions in your team at different stages of development? The same goes for documenting examples of emotional intelligence (Bradberry & Greaves), conflict, or stages of group/team development (Parker) and dysfunctions (Lencioni) in your team.—————————————-(*) Attachments include Temperament Composite charts of your team, the Temperament Targets Matrix, Parker Team Player Grids, Temperament & Interaction Style summaries for yourself and your team as a whole. Recommendation: Team members may meet to help one another construct “the story” of how your team in LEAD 302 evolved and the extent to which it “came together” this semester. Analyze yourself first, then meet and share your respective observations with one another. Together, you can begin to analyze your group and prepare notes to help you when you finalize your individual analysis. —————————————-PROCESSBreadth and Depth of Application of Theory to Practice (Sophistication of Analysis): 4 points. (4 %)APPLY COURSE CONCEPTS THOROUGHLY! It is critical that you provide evidence of BREADTH and DEPTH of application of our course material. Be careful not to make unsupported assertions, but to link your observations directly to course materials (quote from your sources!); Validate and affirm your analysis with reference to course material.> Breadth means the extent to which you apply multiple course sources (Textbooks, Temperament booklets, presentations, the retreat, your project team preparation and facilitation, and your team’s participation in the facilitation by other student groups.). The rule of thumb here is: the more, the better! You should obviously refer to YOUR TEAM- AND SELF-ASSESSMENT MATRICES provided/developed in Week 13. (If you attach them, these are not counted in your page-count limit).> Depth refers to the sophistication of your analysis. Go beyond surface-level descriptions of dynamics to explore the sources and origins of those dynamics. Show how your understanding of self and your understanding of others allows you to “paint a complete picture” of team development (or lack thereof!!) in the groups you’re a part of.YOUR TEAM- AND SELF-ASSESSMENT MATRICES attached team membersjimmyNanciHannahdaisyme (Fernando)requirements: 11-15 pages, double-spaced in 11 or 12-point font ; 1” margins.You can use quotes from the following books… outside sources are welcome too:Travis Bradberry & Jean Greaves.
