P3–Working in a team porfolio

I have attended the workshop for Working in a team on 3rd Dec. During the workshop, I figure out that due to the time constraint, people do not really get to know each other and relationship has not been built up before getting together to complete an assigned task. That is a group , but not a team. Therefore it is really hard to build up the trust and to work together cooperatively and effectively. So learning from that lesson, I think I will make an effort to do some more icebreaking conversations. It may be wasteful in short-term, but in long-term I think it will be helpful. It is what stated in Tuckman's of group development - The Forming Stage.

Moreover I also discover what type of role I am most suitable in a group - as a Shaper and Monitor evaluator. So maybe, I will try to fulfil this role in my future group work and minimise my shortcomings as stated in the Belbin's team role descriptions.

Knowing different types of role in a team, I may be able to detect what type of personality and role that my teammates are, so I try to be more patience to their weakness, and to cooperate with them better and effectively.

Honestly I always train myself to be a good leader in a team, or in an organisation for the future career . After figuring out my suitable role in the team, I am quite disappointed. But anyway, I learn what qualities contribute to be good leader during the workshop. I would like to try to cultivate  these characteristics of a good leader such as communication skills, motivation, and self-belief.

    We are all struggling; none of us has gone far. Let your arrogance go and look around inside.

    The blue sky opens out farther and farther,
    the daily sense of failure goes away,
    the damage I have done myself fades,
    the million suns come forward with light,
    when I sit firmly in that world.

    I hear bells ringing that no one has shaken
    inside love there is more than we know of,
    rain pours down, although the ski is clear of clouds
    there are whole rivers of light.
    The universe is shot through in all parts by a single sort of
    How hard it is to feel that joy in all our four bodies!

    As with your comments on the other workshops you need to produce more concrete action points.

  3. I have had a business project that requires to work as a group for this term. Thus I am trying to apply my role as a shaper and monitor evaluator in this groupwork.
    1/ I volunteered to take responsibility in tracking the progress of the group meetings.
    2/ Doing the project-evaluation.
    3/ Our group also takes the effort to do some ice-braking conversation and has a little chat after the meeting.
    Hope this will have some positive contribution to the success of the project in the future
