  • 3. Speaking in and for Groups > Working in Groups Leadership in Groups • There are three main leadership styles: Laissez-faire, Democratic, and Authoritarian. A leader's style and involvement may fall anywhere along the continuum. • It is the group leader's job to unite group members in working toward a common goal, keep them motivated, diffuse conflict, and ultimately deliver success. • Excellent communication can be the key to successful group work. When messages are properly understood and all group members feel they are being heard, the group's goal can more easily be accomplished and conflict is less likely.

  • 4. Speaking in and for Groups > Working in Groups Responsibilities in Group Work • Assigning group members roles can help alleviate uncertainty about expected responsibilities and help keep the group on task such as leader, scribe, devil's advocate, and tracking lessons learned. • Group member responsibilities include holding themselves accountable, participating in group activities to achieve the overall goal, and respecting all members of the group. • Each group member has something uniquely valuable to bring to the table. Allowing group members to use their strengths and bring their individual knowledge and backgrounds to the project will allow the group to function to its full potential.

  • 5. Speaking in and for Groups > Working in Groups Reflective Thinking • Reflective thinking requires scientific analysis of a problem and using empirical knowledge to make decisions. • According to John Dewey, a disciplined mind is necessary to gain knowledge and obtain true intellectual freedom. • When group members use reflective thinking, they are able to use the scientific method to reach logical decisions and understand the strength of the group based on individual competencies.

  • 8. Speaking in and for Groups > Presenting Group Thinking Thoughts for Group and Individual Presenters • The first speaker should introduce the entire presentation. After that, each speaker should introduce the next and transition with a preview of their topic. • Each presenter should make eye contact with the audience and move to the front of the group when it is his or her turn to speak. The last speaker should then conclude the entire presentation. • When preparing the presentation, the group should check each individual's work for consistency of information and formatting. Group members should answer audience questions as a team with no one member dominating. View on Boundless.com Free to share, print, make copies and changes.

  • 9. Speaking in and for Groups > Presenting Group Thinking Preparing for Team Presentations • The model for understanding team processes can be grouped into three categories: transition, action, and interpersonal. • Teamwork processes examine interpersonal interactions between group members, which can be used as strategies for successful presentations. • Another approach to the dynamics of a team presentation involves looking specifically at the strategies that guide interactions between group members throughout the team effort. • Establishing ground rules, coordinating meeting times, and effectively resolving disputes are some methods used to build effective teams and group Group presentation presentations.
