Module 7 Leading Teams Final Exam

Leading Teams
Final Exam

Good teamwork releases group synergy so that the combined effect of individual contributions far exceeds the sum of their individual effects. There is mutual accountability and togetherness amongst members of a well-knit team. The basic premise here is that individual contributions cannot be as good as all of us working together in a team.

All of us have worked in teams at some point in life and can recall interacting with others to meet team objectives. Bring to mind both the good and bad experiences that you went through while working with team members and others. Look back into your own life, and/or experience working on or leading teams. As you dwell on these points, you are sure to come up with hitherto unnoticed aspects about your personality and work that will shed light on team interactions.

Look back at your experiences. Please write an essay of a real-life, team experience incorporating the following aspects:

  • How did you perform?

  • Were you able to lead the team to meet its objectives?

  • Were you able to define the team’s objectives and the roles of members clearly?

  • How did you understand your different team members, appreciate them and make the most of their special skills and abilities to substantially improve the result of their joint efforts?

  • What did other team members feel about your presence in the team?

  • Were your interactions positive or negative?

  • Did you learn anything from your interactions within and outside the team?
