TEAM WORKING SKILLS 3
Itis clearly evident from the questions that every individual in a teamhas particular role to play. The main element or purpose of being ina team is to contribute towards the overall achievement of the team’sgoals. In a team, different members are viewed as having differingroles according to their capabilities. For instance, it is notablefrom the survey questions that a team requires differing capabilitiesin leadership, encouragement, evaluation, as well as ideasgeneration. While in a group or a team carrying out a certainactivity, it is imperative to ensure that one participates and doesnot appear to take advantage of the other team members (Levin, 2012).
Itgoes without saying that there must be varying ideas, opinions andviewpoints in a team. However, it is clear from the survey questionsthat some team members are emotional and might give opinions or ideasbased on the emotions. It is critical to note that such ideas orviewpoints should be discouraged and group members must contributesideas or opinions, which are based on facts. Any argument in thegroup must be backed up by logic. It is also the role of every teammember to ensure that they encourage each other. This is vial inensuring the group energy levels are maintained for optimumperformance.
Thequestions in the survey have clearly indicated the roles that I cantake in a group. According to the survey, it is clear that a memberof a team who frequently leads the other members and ensuresorganization of the group can be termed as a leader. In addition,leaders have been portrayed as people who listen to other teammembers and also build on their ideas (Levin, 2012). Taking thesurvey questions has been extremely helpful by put forward situationsand seeking for reactions from a team member.
