EO M203.04 - Demonstrate Positive Group Dynamics
By: FSgt Frick
Length: 60 Minutes

Group Discussion
What should group members do in order to help the team be successful?

Besides cadets, where else would you use these strategies?

Give me an example of a time you used these strategies.

To display positive group dynamics, cadets must...
- contribute to group discussions by providing input. This means contributing to every discussion. Even if a cadet has no new or original ideas, agree or disagree with other member's suggestions. Ask questions. Offer support and volunteer to take extra assignments.

- Be motivated. Be enthusiastic and ensure the best effort each time when working in a team setting.

-Participate in establishing the team's goals. Cadets will have to work to meet the team's goals, so cadets should have a say in determining them. Ensure group goals are consistent with the aims of the cadet organization.

- Try new things. Do not be afraid to take risks. Trying new things shows courage, and courage is a leadership quality. Remember the turtle, it's safe when it is in it's shell, but in order to move ahead it must stick it's neck and feet out.
Activity Time:
Its important to demonstrate positive group dynamics by being a supportive and encouraging team member within a peer setting. As a full participant in team activities, cadets may enjoy their tasks more and they may make effective contributions to the team's success. This may assist in building the cadet's self-confidence and self esteem and may improve their basic leadership skills

WHY is this important?
Some more...
- Be sensitive to other POVs. Listen to the opinions of other team members Do not be afraid to express your view even if it is different or even the opposite of everybody else. Deal respectfully with teammates who disagree. Be willing to compromise to achieve a consensus.

- Know teammate's strengths and weaknesses. If members know their teammate's talents and limitations, it enables the team to use all it's personnel to it's best advantage. Being aware of teammates individual habits may make working with them easier.

- Increase self confidence through positive self-talk. Focus on one's positive characteristics. To feel better about yourself, concentrate on the things done well, and compliment yourself. This is not always easy.

- Be cooperative. Be polite, a team player, support your teammates. Help them by distributing work evenly and by sharing information, do not compete.

- Resolve conflicts ASAP at the lowest and most appropriate level. Don't let problems fester and don't hold a grudge. Once conflicts are resolved let them go.

- Celebrate success because this may lead to increase enthusiasm and self confidence of your team members. If you complete a task, share the enjoyment! Compliment your team members. Praise them in front of others. Show appreciation to those who have been specifically helpful.
Question Time:
How can cadets contribute to group discussions?

Why should cadets not be afraid to try new things within a team setting?

Was it difficult to remain silent?
