Team dynamics are the unconscious, psychological forces that influence the direction of a team’s behavior and performance. Team dynamics are created by the nature of the team’s work, the personalities within the team, their working relationships and the environment in which the team works. (Thompson & Choi, 2006)Building a strong and an effective team was our first objective. We took several steps to achieve this objective through organizing in-group meetings and analyzing each and every member.
In order make the team stronger we focused on roles, valued each other and ideas, good communication, kept short and long term goals, celebrated success and failures and created an understanding among the group. Yet we remained unable to guarantee that our group could reach its goals. We focused on problem solving and motivating each other rather than meeting negativity. We defined each team member a role to play in accomplishing the tasks on the specific job by understanding each member’s skills. Each person unleashed their ideas, suggestions, worked cooperatively and participated in group decision makings. Group members got involved, worked together, took risks and played a vital role even though it wasn’t their area of responsibility. Since from the beginning we had a great relationship between the members and that made a huge impact in accomplishing our goal.
