Week 2, Group 1
Our group has some great experience with working in groups or teams. Our team is somewhat diverse and voiced which is a very beneficial aspect of a team. Also while working in class face-to-face noone was acting as a pushover. Everyone voiced their opinions and folowed thier ideas with reasoning, making ideds easier to understand and comprehend. We have a wide variety of technical and economic majors on our team. Along with our majors everyone has really stressed the importance of group communication and success. Ethical issues are capable of disrupting and team, but what is most important is the goal the team is trying to accomplish. As long as everyone in the group or on the team understands thier role, and focuses on the goal at hand, the goal can be reached. The only factor that is still up in the air is the idea of having leader. No one in our group has stood out and addressed themselves as the front-runner. Even though leading by committee is often times favorable, a leader may be required to keep the group and ideas grounded. In small groups a leader should not be a fascist boss, but rather a planner and motivater.
