Patterns of behavior related to the group

Expected behavior in a group.
Organizational culture and actions are examples of norms.
Consequences are given when a norm is not followed.

A position in relation to other’s in a group
It all depends on race, sex, title, pay, education, and assets.
A high-status person has a dominant effect in the group.
Supervisors should focus speak to the high-status person to mediate the group.

The bond that holds the group together.
Ex: Equal participation by all; Shared goals; Competition; Comfort within the group; History of success

Normal sizes of groups are around 15 to 20 members.
More than 20 members and the group will disband and form mini-groups within the group.

It is when a lot of the group members have many things in common.
The more a group is homogeneous, the more comfortable they are, more cohesiveness between each other, and no communication barrier.

Whether or not the group can achieve what it set out to do.
If none of the top characteristics are met, effectiveness would be hopeless.
A clique that hurts morale among other employees hurts the organization too.

Meetings should have a purpose like: conveying information, decision making, and change and build support for change.
It brings employees from different management to be in one room and feel as they are also needed and also have different opinions.

Have a knowledge on who is attending and where and when to meet up.
Scheduling meetings are the most appropriate and have an agenda for the meeting.

It should be prompt and on a timely matter and end on time.
Restate key points
Encourage participation by all
Take notes
Bring the meeting to a close.

A key characteristic of any effective meeting is participants who know how to listen. Write a list of dos and don'ts for being a good listener in a meeting, and share your ideas. Here are a few to get you started: DO: Be alert, concentrate on the speaker, and avoid making hasty judgements about what is said.
Interrupt, talk to others in the room, or let your feelings about the speaker get in the way.
