A CLOSER LOOK AT THE IMPORTANCE OF GROUP DYNAMICS Team work can be a challenging task, but it certainly not an impossible one. There are many different characteristics that effective teams possess, all of which contribute to their success. When working in teams, it is crucial to remember that everyone has an equally important role, and if one role is missing or unfinished, the rest of the team can suffer. Characteristics of successful teams include a common end goal, reliable team members, positive encouragement, assorted skill sets, and applicable communication. Although it can be perplexing, teamwork can often result in a fruitful end goal if done correctly. When attempting team projects, it is imperative to first acknowledge the different characteristics of prosperous team building. Arguably the most important, communication is key to any and all team efforts. Communicating the final project to the audience is one thing, but if there is not effective communication within the group, the end project can suffer greatly. Communication in teamwork includes not only the spoken word, but how that word is delivered. One study states that 93 percent of communication is more affected by body language, attitude, and tone, leaving only 7 percent of the meaning and intent based on the actual words said.

    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.
