Based on your knowledge from a past or present job, explain the difference between a group and a team.
Would you say you were
a part of a group or a team while working in that job?
Now, identify a team that you were a part of and describe the advantages that you derived from being a member of the team. Include responses to the following:
Would you characterize your role as effective?
How could you have been a better team member?
What role(s) did you or the leader play in making the team effective?
How could the leader have made the team more effective?
Write your initial response in a minimum of 200–300 words. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
Provide substantive comments by contributing new, relevant information or quotes from course reading, academic and trade journals, company websites, or other sources; building on the remarks or questions of others; or sharing practical examples of key concepts from your professional or personal experiences.
Make sure your writing is clear, concise, and organized; demonstrates ethical scholarship through accurate representation and attribution of sources; and displays accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
Please carefully read the agreement. I want all 2015 references, citations throughout the body of the paper, and American references ONLY please.
