As part of the team, it is my job to create a plan that will identify the various strategies used to help build effective teams. I will also consider any and all challenges and/or barriers, which may hinder any progress. I will also use measures in order to determine if our team is working effectively.
I will begin by dividing these strategies into two categories: Team Strategy Plan and Conflict Management Plan. Team Strategy Plan Group development is made up of five (5) stages, they are: forming, storming, morning, performing, and adjourning. I will begin our meeting with forming. It is here everyone in our group will learn about each other by exchanging information through open communicating. This open meeting also allows each person to speak freely and keep an open mind about others backgrounds and experiences.
The second stage, called storming, can sometimes create a little conflict within the group but is essential because it allows everyone to come up with a game plan” and or ideas as to how we can attack this task successfully bases on his or her own experiences. Morning comes into play once everyone has heard each other out. It is here where the team starts to work effectively together because they have now formed some level of respect for one another’s opinions and differences.
By the fourth stage, performing, our team should be fully functional and accepting of everyone else and his or her differences. By this stage they know each others quirks, can work together effectively and efficiently. The final stage is adjourning. It is here when the group can finally see an end to the project. Most companies face the challenge of team conflict. Conflict can increase or decrease things such as: turnover rate, production, employee satisfaction, and overall company “tone”.
Open communication will have to be stressed to my team. It is essential in order avoid any barrios while trying to complete this task. Group decision-making is not always effective and can even cause conflict. Conflict Management Radian’s management wants to know that these new production teams can operate smoothly and efficiently. Developing a Conflict Management Plan would help us address any conflict that may arise within the group. It is here where we can come up with various strategies and possible challenges.
There are five (5) stages to the conflict process, they are: potential opposition or incompatibility, cognition and personalization, intentions, behavior, and outcomes. Of these, believe the third stage, intentions, is most important. It is here where we have to differentiate between people’s perception/behavior versus reality. Competing takes place when an individual or individuals no longer consider the group as a team and often tend to work alone, not staying in yen with the rest of the team. It is essential to keep everyone on board, collaborating as a team.
Avoidance is never a good thing. It can cause unnecessary resentment and inefficient productivity. Accommodation takes place when others put someone else’s interest before his or her own. Compromising is essential in most cases. This often produces a temporary Even though a certain strategy may cause weakness, it can also cause strength. Alternate strategies are: Conflict-Resolution Techniques and Conflict-Stimulation Techniques. Conflict-Resolution consists of problem loving, subordinates goals, and altering the structural and human variables.
Conflict-Stimulation is done through communication, bringing in people from outside the company, restructuring the organization and playing devil’s advocate. Conclusion As we continue to work together, it is pertinent that stress that we are here to complete one task. In Order to complete that task, We must all work efficiently, maintain open communication and mind, flexible, and aware/ accepting of others backgrounds, thoughts, processes. Motivation can help with the intensity, direction and persistence of each employee.
