Process of team building
This ideal type of teambuilding-process was developed by Bruce Tuckman. The last stage "adjourning" was added in 1977 in order to consider also the disbandment of a team.
interrupted flow of information
Researches have revealed that team members tend to follow and support the group opinion too fast and without considering another solution for the particular problem. Thus, distinct conformity leads to wrong decisions and causes (economic) damages.
It is essential to discuss the expectations of each team member at the beginning of the project (Forming). In case the expectations of just one team member are unspoken, the group will not consider this and the particular team member will feel misunderstood. Furthermore the quality of his or her contribution will suffer which might affect the quality of the whole group work.
My working experience reflects my diverse mindset. During my cooperative study programme in cooperation with the Commerzbank AG I have worked in three completely different departments. For half a year I have worked for the marketing team were I have been in charge of the social media activities for the whole bank. Furthermore, I have worked for the "Mittelstandsbank" which gives advise to mid-sized companies with an annual turnover of 500 million Euros. I gave advise in terms of financing, working capital and stock markets.
I would try to use all my strengths in a team and apply them on the particular task. Thus, I make sure that I contribute to the group as best as possible and focus the task and ensure a high- quality result. Moreover, if I use all my strengths they will improve and that increases the quality of my individual contribution.
hand in results too fast
hard to evaluate myself
Bonebright 2010, p. 113
Perfectionism: Perfectionism, in psychology, is a personality trait characterized by a person's striving for flawlessness and setting excessively high performance standards, accompanied by overly critical self-evaluations and concerns regarding others' evaluations.
(Stoeber & Childs 2010, p. 577)
Perfectionism is one of my weaknesses. During my work at Commerzbank AG I was able to improve this weakness as my supervisor told me about that several times. It results in spending too much time on details and so wasting time.
James MacGregor Burns first introduces the transformational leadership in 1978. (Bass & Riggio 2006). Burns describes this particular kind of leadership as a process in which "leaders and followers help each other to advance to a higher level of morale and motivation".
The basic characteristics are the following: Transformational leaders possess the ability to influence their followers by providing attractive opportunities for the team. (Emrich et al. 2001). Moreover, this leaders stand out due to a distinct charismatic personality. Thus, their followers consider them as a role-model. (Bass 1985; Kark and van Dijk 2007).
Researches have revealed that a transformational managed team achieves above-average results.
increase Circle of Influence,
decrease Circle of Concern
The "Circle of Influence, Circle of Concern" was first published by Steven Covey in his book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". The main idea is that a leader should concentrate on things, he/she can influence by himself/herself. Thus, a leader has to stop caring about these things which he/she can not influence (Circle of Concern). Instead, he/she should focus on the Circle of Influence.
