Teamwork Assessment

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Teamwork Assessment To me, after a lot of group work I see that teamwork is a vital component of human nature. By participation in various activities I was able to identify elements that involve good teamwork, through the mistakes that we made during the exercises. Good teamwork involves the awareness and consideration of all other group members. Everyone has a right to their opinion, which should be listened to and then in turn they should listen to everyone else's views. Group work is only successful if all members of the group give their all to the task at hand. Speaking out can become difficult if everyone talks at one time, consideration of others feelings in the group is very important. I am a confident speaker and during the exercises I expressed my views fully, although other members were shy and embarrassed to speak out; maybe they thought their views weren't important. Leadership often occurs in a group to me this is someone taking command and using their initiative. Other group members didn't seem to appreciate this, but I feel that a good organised group needs a "head figure", someone using their initative to guide the group and construct ideas into output for a realistic and achievable outcome. ...read more.

An example of teamwork involving risk taking is the "getting to know you questions". I felt a lot of the questions involved were personal and therefore involved a lot of risk taking to answer the questions truthfully to people we were only beginning to know. I gained a lot of confidence from this question and answer task. I also thought it brought the group closer. I think that good teamwork involves the group being comfortable with each other and trusting each other with things that has occurred to your personal life. I am a confident person, but I thought that every time I spoke out I was taking a risk because sometimes the group doesn't share the same views as me and they would laugh now and then this can e very embarrassing, but nothing personal. Group work is all about planning, as it allows communication to occur. It gives people their chance to express their opinion. Planning is made easier if the views are written down. It gives the group a chance to get a better view of the situation and work more together. It helps them to see what approach to take. However this is very seldom done. ...read more.

Conclusion

We had to work as a team. In this particular exercise we had to motivate and give each other support and it contributed to the good output of the team. I think the team made a good attempt to understand and fulfil the elements of teamwork. I don't think I was ever in a team which I would label as "bad" but there were a few times when groups I was in were we didn't co-operate to the best of our ability. We didn't support or listen to each other. Our whole class as a whole needs to develop their communication and contribution planning skill could also be sharpened. To this we need to: * Sit down and discuss what we are doing wrong * What we can to do improve it? And is everyone is contributing to the best of their abilities? I have really enjoyed working as a team, and I feel I have contributed a lot, I am easily motivated and I try my best to motivate those around me. I feel that my confidence has increased on doing the group exercises, and I am a lot more comfortable within the group. In smaller groups I am happier to give my ideas and express my opinion (but less confident when we are working with the whole group). ...read more.
