Unfortunately we did not have a good dynamic with at least 1 team member which cause a quite a bit of delay and frustration, but we were able to side step this for the most part and push on with the objectives. Things got really bad one particular week and I am glad it’s over I will have to really do some thinking about how to deal with this if it happens in the real world. 3. What did you learn in completing this project about yourself and how you work in a team environment? I work better with people who are of similar thinking, I think that I lead better than follow, and I know that I prefer to work on things alone.
My deviant behavior brought upon many dirty looks, some surprised looks, as well as aggression. Many of the people released their anger for my actions with profanity and yelling, while other took more physical approaches. One gentleman followed me back to my cart and took every item I had commandeered and put it in his own cart. I just smiled and hoped the end bill when he was at the cash register was worth his emotional need to prove a point. I found my endeavors rather comical and surprisingly easy to complete.
Social norms are what keep a society running smoothly on a daily basis. But the question remains, what happens when a norm is broken? Cutting in line has been an unspoken law since kindergarten, so I wanted to see how grown men and women would react to being “cut”. I went into my friendly neighborhood Safeway on a Thursday night, and as usual the lines were ridiculous. I used to work at this particular store, so I spoke to all of the employees and the manager about my social experiment so that I wouldn’t get in too much trouble.
A common goal is essential to put in place as if this doesn’t happen confusion can occur and this can affect the young people we care for. As we were working with young people who could be effected by too much uncertainty we looked to our manager for the team objectives as to create as much of a settled environment as possible, a common purpose was important as to create consistency within the staff team. Key features are absent at this stage apart from a motivation throughout the team to do the job well. Storming - stage 2 As a lot of us were new to the company we all wanted to make a good impression, so a little bit of a competitive environment developed, with members of the team having their own ideas of how to do things, disagreements occurred, different personalities coming together caused conflict and this can be difficult for the seniors and manager at this early stage of the team being put together. Also new staff being taught the more modern practices tended to clash with the staff who have been doing the job for many years.
That is my main function within the group, to facilitate the day-to-day actions of the other members. If something needs to get done, I assign a member that task and then follow up until completion. The only draw back so far is my aggressive attitude towards mission accomplishment has caused some of the other members to recent my approach. I do not always ask for things in a nice way, I think being direct is the quickest way to get something completed. The biggest affect that it has on the group is slowing down the amount of work that was getting completed.
Communication affects relationships in a work setting, if I communicate well with my colleagues building trust and understanding between us it makes it easier to get things done. Working as part of a team I work alongside my colleagues and we share the work load. Building a good relationship with colleagues means we will co-operate with each other and trust develops between us. If we don’t communicate well in our workplace, it would make your work harder, stop you wanting to go to work and the atmosphere wouldn’t be nice. Having a good relationship with your colleagues, manager and the service users would make you and everyone around you much happier and help everything on a daily basis go smoother.
A good working atmosphere is were an employee doesn't not feel threatened by other colleagues and/or their boss, an atmosphere where you could freely speak your mind and be creative. COOPERATION WITH CO-WORKERS: 1. What types of people have trouble getting along with you? People that are lazy and are slackers on every piece of work they do are the people I don't usually get along
Instead of going out with my friend and her family, I went with my co-workers and owner of the organization the non-profit organization The Harlem Children Zone. After seeing the devastation at Far Rockaway, many volunteers were asked to give up their free time to go to hand out food to those who were in need. On Sunday November 4th 2012 we were asked to meet at our job and prepare individual bags with food so that we could hand out. After that was completed we headed to Redfern Houses. I didn’t know Redfern Houses was public housing nor did I know that there were going to be so many people in need.
Knowledge Based Questions Unit 6: 1.1-1.5 1.1 – Outline the benefits of effective team working: * The benefits of effective team working has for GFirst as an organisation are: * It allows for easy and effective communication between the GFirst team and help to build good working relationships with your colleagues. * Working as a team allows for many different people to work on one project/task.
