The identification and understanding of an individual’s role and that of the other team member’s roles is crucial as is the recognition of how the different roles complement each other and work together.
A team is a type of organizational group with independent members. They share common goals and work together to meet these goals (Northouse, 2016). The organization where I work has teams at various levels for maximizing the success. These teams include, core teams, coordinating teams, patient aligned care team (PACT), contingency teams, ancillary teams, support and administration teams (Veterans Health Administration [VHA], 2015). Some of these teams have interdepartmental members while others have intradepartmental staff. Successful teams have a concrete blueprint and that contributes to their effective functioning. There are several factors that affect these teams irrespective of the level. The factors comprise the presence of a clear task, separation from non-team members, authority, and stability. The factors like working conditions, team process and bridging the gaps are concerns for the executive level. The complexity of the task, individual skills and their diverse specializations affect the selection of the team members. The team’s meaningful interactions decide their success. Independent teams can help promote friendly competition within the organization and lead to better staff performance. An efficient leader can design and launch an effective team through careful planning and selection of the right members. He/she keeps the factors that affect the success of the team in mind when designing the teams. The patient care units
I'm currently the lead unit deployment manager at Mountain Home AFB, and our team primary goal is to ensure that anyone deploying from our base have nothing to worry about besides leaving the completing their mission around the country or overseas. Our team usually consists of five members with five different personalities, five different temperaments and five different motivators. The most difficult part I face as a team lead is ensuring everyone complete their tasks in a timely manner and that each member understands their role on the team. After performing the Belbin Team Roles I got a better understanding of some of the strengths and weakness of team dynamics. Of the Belbin team roles survey I scored the highest in the Shaper, team worker

Virgin Australia is an extremely diversified and multi dimensional corporation that truly approve that its individuals are its the most important asset.

If an officer cannot be accountable or responsible, he or she will lose the respect from other officers. Teamwork will be at jeopardy because no one will be able to trust this officer. If the officer was responding to a call, he or she might have difficulty finding a fill for backup. Even if an officer was accountable and responsible, teamwork is essential in this profession. There is no “lone-wolf” in this profession because law enforcement is a team effort. Everyone has to learn how to get along in order to protect the public above all else.
Through team meetings and project control, risk associated with roles and responsibilities could be quickly identified. One through work duplication if one or more staff are performing the same task and two through inaccurate, incomplete or delayed work. Left unmanaged they may lead to long term delay and added cost as well as team dysfunction as political behaviours evolved. To resolve these risks, clarity of roles may need to be re-established and a more robust
1. What is the one topic that really stood out to you in Chapter 9- Collaborating in Teams? Why? Chapter nine in our textbook addressed collaborating in teams. This chapter did an excellent job of informing the reader about several key elements pertaining to teamwork. Topics like elements of teamwork, team dynamics and how to improve them, and ways to enhance teamwork. After completing the homework for this week in conjunction with our required reading assignments one aspect of our reading really stood out to me. Learning about the differences between groups and teams in the workplace was very interesting to me. As learned, there are several fundamental differences between groups and teams. Some of the components of a group are: roles
He would like collect different points of view and help or team to make balanced decision. Yet he liked to criticize other members. Therefore, he did not give encouragement to colleagues.
For the 4WC we were put into teams and given tasks to complete each week. My team consisted of 6 members, including myself. The teams were decided based upon a test that each member took. Using the results of the test each member was assigned a role from Belbin’s Theory of Team Roles. This was done to ensure that all the teams where balanced as the theory of building a team with Belbin’s Team Roles is that one person weakness is another person’s strength. Belbin (2010). On the second week of the challenge I took up the role of leader of the group, a position that I was very unsure about. Within the following report I will reflect on my development as leader, what I learnt and the effects that my leadership had on the team and tasks.

I think the Drexler-Sibbet Team Performance Model is the perfect framework to work through this issue. I often encounter this exact issue in building teams when there is a change in special education process coordinator or other special education support staff who are not working in the building full time. I agree with the statement that open conflict is better than simmering. If the issue is never addressed, resolution cannot be achieved and negative feelings only grow. I like the positive manner which the model uses to move individuals from a dysfunctional team toward shared goals and commitments.
In the base team, we decided early on that the goal is to become a high performing team. With that in mind, we used the self-assessment questionner (Belbin SPI) and ended up with a list of preferred primary and secondary roles, linked to each team member. The result shows that the base team has seven out of nine roles. Implementer and Specialist are not represented in the base team. The assigned roles should reflect our preferred behaviours according to the Team Role Model (Belbin, 1981), but it does not mean that our base team is lacking the knowledge of a Specialist or the skills as an Implementer. With the team roles stated, we decided to define our own strengths and weaknesses and adding these to our preferred roles from Belbin SPI.
Teams are often depicted as a group of people sharing leadership of and working together on a specific project, whereas a group (but not a team) consists of individuals who work independently and are led by a strong, focused individual (Erofeev, Glazer, & Ivanitskaya, 2009). In the health care organization, it is important to have a group of people working together as a well a team. Each person individually need to fully understand what his or her role is in a group or team, if not there will be conflicts.
Belbin’s Team Roles are named by who created this team role, British psychologist, Dr Meredith Belbin. In 1969, Dr Belbin was invited to use this business game as a starting point for a study of team
