4 Group or team?
At this point it would be good to identify some of the groups and teams that you are part of.
Activity 3 Assessing your present position
What groups or teams are you part of? Don’t just think of teams at work. Widen your thinking to include teams that you are part of in work, school and sport. Think of previous teams as well as current teams. How many can you come up with? For each example try to answer the following questions:
- What was the purpose of the group or team?
- How well did it achieve its goals?
- Who was involved in it?
- How were members selected?
- Did people have different skills and experiences and if so were they complementary?
Try to answer these for three of the examples you have come up with and note down some of your thoughts.
Don’t worry if you have only come up with one example at this point, you might think of some more as you work through this section and you can always revisit this activity to add in other ideas as they come to you.
