Putting the Puzzle Together There are many different types of roles when in a study group or in a business meeting. According to the book Management Communications: Principles and Practices, 3rd edition (Chapter 10: Managing Meetings) there are at least 10 different roles when doing the “role playing strategy.” There’s “The Joker” who ties to, according to the book “break the ice or insert disguised barbs.” It is pretty much say that though it may not look like he or she is not taking seriously, he or she is.

An example of one of my leadership roles was on the first day of class. I was chosen to lead in a group communication. We were presented with an assignment on characteristics of group communication. The assignment involved factors and behavior that contributed to our group. We determined that communication was the most important factor. The skills the group had to establish were a common goal, working together in small groups, and synergy. See Chapter 1. Another example of a leadership role was on the discussion panel project. The project was very challenging and labor intensive. We learned how technology and computer-mediated technology effect communication. See Chapter 15.

Whenever we form a group or team at my job one of the first things we do is assign and define roles and responsibilities. Motivation and satisfaction of team members can be increased when they are assigned roles congruent with individual strengths and abilities (Fischer, n.d.).

This past year, I really worked on improving my teamwork skills. In order for our team to be successful, each member including myself had to contribute to the team meetings. I contributed to team meetings in a number of ways. Firstly, the scheduling of meetings was done by me.
