SOC 110 Week 2 Discussion How Do You Form a Team?
Post a total of 3 substantive responses over 2 separate days for full participation. This includes your initial post and 2 replies to classmates or your faculty member.
Last week, we explored how teams differ from groups and what makes a team effective. This week, we will discuss how teams are formed and what factors influence how teams evolve. We will also explore various roles within a team and investigate strategies you can use to strengthen team cohesion and improve team performance.
For this week’s discussion, consider the learning activities you’ve completed and your own experience within a team. Include examples, if possible.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
- What are some typical challenges that occur as a team develops?
- Which of these situations have you encountered when working with a team?
- How did you and other team members react in these situations? Based on what you learned this week, were those reactions appropriate? How would you respond if your supervisor asked you what it means to “strengthen a team”?
