  • Coordinate-the successful completion of a particular project
  • ESOP--is an employee benefit plan which makes the employees of a company owners of stock in that company
  • Also helps to identify problems within a company and recommended ways to solve them.
  • Virtual teams also are committed to a common purpose, have interdependent performance goals, and share an approach to work for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.
  • Task Role--Initiates the idea-generating process by offering new ideas and/or suggestionsMaintenance Role--Ex. Telling a joke or changing the subject of a conversation
  • EX.---Attending meetings on time, being prepared, meeting deadlines
  • ---Groupthink occurs when groups are highly cohesive and when they are under considerable pressure to make a quality decision.
  • Orentation-get to know one another Conflict-express and debate different ideas Emergence-moving toward actions Reinforcement-marked by a strongspirit of cooperation and accomplishments among team members.
  • Exchange info--respond to questions w/ other questions that open up the team dialog. This helps to show interest, to control and clarify ideas.
  • 3.-using “we” instead of “I” is more persuasive. Using words such as must, should and ought is viewed as arrogant by members of non-western cultures. 4. -using “If” comments ---Ex. “We can deliver those services if your suppliers can meet this schedule”.
  • challenging ones that affect many people (simple tasks are better for individuals)
  • The NWSF Had teams such as Social Forum Planning Committee, Indigenous Programming Committee, Youth Planning Committee and the Film Planning Committee.Function as a whole? No…the teams worked individually but not as a whole and communication was weak.
  • Communication issues---Cultural diversity is becoming more popular but have researchers concerned with the effects of cultural differences on team member communication.
