Sarah Perkins September 28, 2007 ENGRC 335: Log 3 1. The five elements of team communication are roles, norms, decision-making processes,  management of conflict and consensus, and cultural diversity in teams.    Roles help the team to balance between goals of individuals within a team and the goals of the  team.  Each team member should act in a predictable role which is consistent with their patterns  of interaction with the team.   Norms are informal rules that determine acceptable behavior and boundaries within the group.  I’d like my team to follow norms that expect them to show up on time for group meetings,  respond to team emails, pull their share of the work load, and be respectful of each other.   Decision-making is more effective as a team than individual decision-making.  Team decision  making is more effective because teams generate more information and ideas.  Involving the  team in decision making gets team members involved and aware of important issues.  In group  decision-making it is important to avoid group think.  In order to avoid group think and make

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
