The test that examines more in depth of leadership styles produced a somewhat predicted outcome. I know that my style and personality are strongly linked to achieving a task to completion. There are few times where I put people’s concerns or worries ahead of the task, generally when necessary but defaulting to task at hand as priority. I don’t believe that I’m inconsiderate of people as my style is to be balance the work loads and give people an opportunity to achieve their directives. This allows me to focus more on the issue at hand and worry less about people’s opinions.
At the conclusion of the case study it is clear that the group which consisted of the “Team Coordinator” Christine, Diane, Janet, Steve and Mike. All team members had effectively bond professionally and socially, created and adhered to the established norms, and performed the task to completion except for Mike. In hindsight, had Christine been more knowledgeable with regards to the forming stage where interpersonal testing and impressions are accomplished and the storming stage where conflicts concerning team member status and how the team works as a whole is hashed out; Christine would not have experienced uncertainty relating to the groups success and she would have been a more confident coordinator. The key issues facing Christine and her group is the social loafing on behalf of Mike and the lack of communication on the team’s behalf to inform Mike of his lack of participation ultimately hurt the team’s performance and affected Christine’s confidence. The lack of his unique input, save a few notes, did not make him a equitable member of

Many persons would not doubt agree with the statement that “It is better to work in a group than as an individual.” This is especially the case for those persons who are extremely shy and have to do performances in front of large audiences or large a large class or for those persons who are not good at particular tasks/subjects and for those persons who like to do “easy” work. Other persons on the other hand would not agree
• Using hand gestures to support what I was saying – I did not use this effectively as I did not use hand gestures at all throughout the conversation, however if I did it would have shown my interest in the conversation and may have engaged the rest of the group in what I was saying by emphasising the point and idea I was putting across to the group. Overall I feel the group conversation went well and was effective. I believe this as we all ensured that turn taking was used effectively and nobody was interrupted or spoken over.

There is no obstacle or challenging terrain in taking the easy way, and I cannot claim in the end that I pushed myself. This directly correlates to my life.
