The bus, full of chattering girls, pulled into the parking lot in Boston, MA. I listened to the coach, Walter speak as he gave us directions to follow. Then, I stood up from the comfortable laid back seat that faced a tv. Off the bus, I walked to the back and the back door opened. Black and gold bags with a Vermont Stars logo passed down to me, carried a strong odor. We just grab a bag and bring it so we don’t waste time trying to find our specific one. Weighed down by my teammates bag, imprints left on my shoulder, I grabbed my 2 composite sticks. My black Nike sneakers hit the pavement as I became closer and closer to the doors, teammates by my side. A friend, a couple steps ahead of me pushed the door open and held it for me. My hand hit the metal door and sent a cold chill up my spine.

In my work center, we require exceptional teamwork to complete our day-to-day task. I will apply the team dynamics concept to my work center by fostering a strong and cohesive unit that works together to complete tasks quickly and efficiently. Also, I will decipher how each individual aids in the development of the group. Each member contributes different talents to the work center and I have to find those and apply them to team dynamics to accomplish the mission effectively. As a leader I will develop a solid relationship with my subordinates to make certain that the group evolves into a well-oiled machine built on trust, loyalty, and respect. According to lesson materials “team leaders pay close attention to interpersonal relationships because

In our house winter is basketball season and, while I'm not a rabid fan, I do watch my fair share of games. The thing I like about basketball is that it is such a clear picture of teamwork. Only five players on the court, each responsible for both offense and defense, each with an assignment, but all that really matters is getting the shot. In the end, it's about making more shots than the other team.
PLACES! Everyone springs into action as the play begins. Allowing us to do a play for our final project will not only premit us to have this feeling but it will help increase teamwork, be helpful later in life, and allow us to express ourselves on the drama side.
Teamwork competencies are detailed characteristics possessed by an effective team. Contributing writer of the AORN Journal D.L. Feldman suggests that “team competencies are achieved when goals are reached and team members are motivated to repeat this behavior again and share what they’ve learned with each other”, (Guglielmi, Feldman, Marco, et al, 2011, pg. 529). Google’s HR group possess all the the key team competency traits however how they developed and arrived at these traits are unclear.
Recently we had a group project in our Human Relations class, it was a challenge because we were all new with each other and we had to plan everything together and learn each other’s styles in a short amount of time. We had a lot of respect for each other because we listened to what everyone had to say and made efforts to work around the ideas. Watching this Teamwork video really gives us an open idea on what a group should be and how we should treat one another. Being open is a major key in teamwork because everyone needs to communicate, and express their emotions to better our team and being honest. Sometimes maybe we didn’t agree with a teammate’s idea and that’s normal, however we expressed our reasoning’s or tried to understand the idea better. It is not healthy to be rude and talk bad about each other to other people, everyone is just going to lose trust.
The teamwork competencies are used as foundational measurements to determines how effective the team is during problem-solving and evaluate teamwork effectiveness. The efficiency of a team’s collaboration performance based environments. The five teamwork competencies that Kreitner & Kinick (2013) discuss in the text assist, teams in organizations with establishing the framework to succeed and become effective. If Google’s HR team members were instructed ahead of time in the teamwork competencies, there should have been more focus around organizing and managing the team performance. According to the text, this competency allows teams to establish “specific, challenging, and accepted team goals” as well as “address feedback on team performance” (Kreitner & Kinick, 2013, P. 306)
The team that I work with included Jenna Perrone, Mariam Barsoum, Simranjot Mahil and Gina Abarca. We were assigned the topic “Physical Activity”. The first thing I did when we left class was research “Physical Activity” on the Healthy People 2020 website. I was able to research the topic and print the necessary statistics such as the number of adults in the United States affected by it, the definition, the benefits and the risks. The following class day, I was able to meet with them and we strategically discussed ways to complete the project as a team. We were able to delegate different sections of the poster presentation to each team member. I was given the tasks of assessment findings and campus resources.
Teamwork is an important skill, and judging by the activities I enjoy, one might think that I prefer to work as part of a larger group towards a common goal. In Boy Scouts, we have to function as a well oiled machine because we work on a tight schedule. But once camp is set up, we turn to the intricate, individual tasks, which I prefer. Even though I work well in groups and enjoy the experience, I find it much more relaxing to work alone at my own pace.
Team meetings are an essential part of the program. It is important to attend all team meetings. You need to stay for the entire meeting. This will ensure everyone heard all the information. It is important to dress professionally for the team meeting. During the meeting, you need to have a notebook to write down notes from the meeting. You also need to take notes during your teaching sessions and share at the team meetings. Things to record are unusual changes in behavior. After each teaching session you need to update the graph. This will provide accurate information at the team meeting of the child’s progress. During a team meeting the provider may have to work with the child in front of the team. Remembering this is to ensure everyone implements
Almost everyone has been on a team at some point in his or her existence, either a sports team as a child or a team at work or in school. The language of 'teamwork' suggests that being on a team is innately different than being a member of a group. "Teams differ from other type of groups in that members are focused on a joint goal or product, such as a presentation, completing in-class exercises, taking notes, discussing a topic, writing a report, or creating a new design or prototype" (Pyatt 2007). An individual can be a member of a group like 'the student body' or 'Europeans' simply by virtue of his or her identity, but a team requires a sense of voluntary association and mission.
How do these strategies apply to a team that you are or have been a participating member?
