Transcript of Learning Outcome 3 - Group Dynamics 1/3

Group defined
The team progresses and functions effectively as a unit

The team works without conflict towards the shared goals and objectives

No need for external monitoring as the group is motivated

The group is more knowledgeable and therefore make decisions.
The familiarization stage where members get to know each and decide if they belong in that group

Group members assess the strengths and weaknesses of other members and test their relationships with other members

Individuals get to know their roles and decide whether or not they can fulfill those roles

Formal leaders tend to be directive at this stage

Lesson Aim and Objective (s)
Aim -
Provide an introduction to group processes, the stages group development and the influences upon group dynamic/performance
O1 - Learners will be able to state the 5 stages of Tucksman's group development model
O2 - Learners will be able to explain 5 stages of Tucksman's group development model
O3 - Learners will be able to identify/explain 3 factors which impact upon group dynamics
Is there a difference between groups and teams?
' Two or more persons who interact with one another such that each person influences and is influenced by each other person'
(Moorhead & Griffiths, 1998)
Team defined
' A small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, common performance goals and an approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable '
(Moorhead & Griffiths, 1998)
What are these athletes talking about?
In order for groups to become teams, they must go through four developmental stages as suggested by (Tuckman 1965); Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing
2. Storming stage
Conflict between group members begins to develop

Individuals/cliques start to question the position and authority of the leader and they will often resist the control of the group

Conflicts develop because demands start to be placed upon group members and some individuals attempt to secure more important roles within the team

Formal leader takes guidance role and helps the team move towards what is expected in terms of professional behaviour
Instability, hostility and conflict that occurred in the storming stage is replaced with cooperation and solidarity

Group cohesion begins to develop as members begin to develop on common goals and ignore individual agendas

As cohesion develops, so does group satisfaction and levels of peer respect increase

Group members are trusted with greater responsibility and take part in decision making
Once a group is at the performing stage, there are still factors which can effect team/group performance!
Steiner's model of group effectiveness
Actual productivity = Potential productivity
- Losses due to faulty group processes
Motivational Losses
Co-ordination Losses
These occur when some members of a team do not give 100 %
These occur when players do not connect with their play, the team interacts poorly or ineffective strategies are used. Sports that require interaction and cooperation between players are more susceptible
The Ringleman Effect
' As group size increases the productivity of individual performance decrease by as much as 50% due to motivational losses '
Individuals feel others are not working as hard as themselves
Believe that their effort will make little difference
Believe that others will compensate for lack of effort
Individuals conserve energy when they believe it will go un-noticed
Can you think of any sporting examples of the Ringleman effect?
Social Loafing
' Social loafing refers to when group members do not put 100% effort in when they are in group or team based situations due to losses in motivation '
Individual contributions are not identified or are dispensable
Some players working harder than others
Lack of confidence
Afraid of failure
Have you ever heard that saying of 'he/she is hiding and doesn't want the ball'
Interactive versus Co-active groups
Interactive groups
Interactive groups require people to work together in order to achieve successful performance
Co-active groups
Co-active groups require individuals to achieve success in their individual games, events or performances to achieve overall success. There is no direct interaction between members during performance
1) Are teams and groups the same?
2) What four stages do groups need to go through to become a team?
3) What stage needs to be the quickest?
4) What are the 3 influences upon group dynamics/team performance?
5) What is an interactive team?
6) What is a co-active team?
What have we learned?
Does anyone know the stages a group needs to go through to become a team?
4-corner poster activity

A) What stage would a coach want to be the quickest?

B) What stage would a coach want to be the longest?

A) Why may a team revisit previous development stages?

B) Will all teams spend the same amount of time at each stage? Provide reasoning for your answer
04 - Learners will be able to provide leadership examples of how Tuckman's model may impact the effective leadership delivery
Motivation or Co-ordination Loss?
1) 'We just do not work well together and that is why we cant score'!

2) 'I cant be bothered to play in Newcastle today, it is too cold'!

3) 'I don't need the money, so I can't be bothered'

4) 'The manager doesn't appreciate me, so I am not going to try'

5) ' The manager has made too many changes for this FA Cup game, these younger players just are not on our wavelength.

6) Can a co-ordination loss result in a motivational loss? and/or can a motivational loss result in a co-ordination loss?
Interactive white board
Recap Cluedo
What is cohesion?
What is social cohesion?
What is task cohesion?
Which cohesion type is most beneficial for sports performance?
What is Carron's model of group effectiveness
What can coaches/leaders do to develop cohesion?
Group/Team Activity
In groups of 4 you have to replicate a famous building of the world using only the materials provided. You must work collaboratively and throughout, reflect upon the processes of the groups development/progress.

The building which looks the most alike the original will be the winners!
