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 think he feels that he coped then because he always knew the current manager would be returning to correct any potential mistakes? I also think he believes that the other office staff were happy for him to cover, purely because it was a short term thing, and potentially they couldn’t be bothered with the additional workload.
There is functional conflict and dysfunctional conflict and it is in management’s best interest to identify potential conflict before it happens, so that it can be managed effectively. Functional conflicts are conflicts that are constructive in nature and create stimulating thoughts and problem solving within a group or team through exercises called devil’s advocate or debates.

Week Two The team members learned about communication during week two’s readings. We learned that communication is one of the most important factors within the workplace. Communication has four factors, control, motivation, emotional expression, and information.
The only evident stress trigger that I am aware of is that of just having so many responsibilities. I often find myself always trying to accomplish and do things on my own without asking for help although I have a superb support system around me. I always feel like I’d rather do things myself instead of having someone do it for me because I know how I things done. Instead of being that way, I can take the road that is smoother and more efficient. The positive response for that will now be
The biggest affect that it has on the group is slowing down the amount of work that was getting completed. If I have to repeat myself or wait longer than excepted because the other team members are getting upset with me, I cannot reach the full potential for that day.
