Total Teamwork: 1, 2, 3!
Teamwork comes in many forms, from group assignments and project management at work…to family reunion planning and social committees in your personal life. However, they all have something in common: the three roles that people play in the group.
Which role do you usually play?
#1 TASK – The people in this role focus on making sure the group reaches its goal.
Examples of task behavior:
-Initiating group discussion
-Keeping group on track/meeting deadlines
-Asking questions/seeking input
-Clarifying comments/mediating conflict
-Making sure everyone is “buying in”
Examples of anti-group behavior:
-Dominating discussion/personal agenda
-Tangenting from the task
-Present but not engaged
-Multi-tasking to the point of distraction
