Leadership, Interpersonal Needs and Journey from Group to Team
The final essay in this section of Curated 2020 brings together all these perspectives as broader dynamics are identified that are inherent in the journey of groups as they seek to become effectively functioning teams.
A snapshot of team functioning is offered in this essay: why is it formed and how does it function? However, the formation of an effectively functioning team requires a movie not just a snapshot. This formation usually is best defined as a journey, rather than being instant arrival at the destination. This essay provides some expectations and guidelines about how this journey can best be executed. A key feature in the journey from group to team concerns the diverse perspectives (The Human Spectrum) held by its members—. It is this diversity that creates both the potentials for and barriers to effective team functioning.
