Define your top three goals or objectives for the team-building activities for the scenario. Defend why those goals are appropriate. Also assess at least two other possible goals and justify why they did not make your top-three list. In all work environments it is important to exercise team building because it helps the employees feel connected and a sense of belonging and being a part of something within the workplace. Not only that, it also keeps conflicts from arising when there are teams who can talk amongst each other to avoid problems or conflicts from arising. Though team building can help with conflicts it can also have conflicts if there is a more diverse group that has different feelings about the task at hand. Three Objectives According to POD Admin (2012), the first objective to team building would be the forming stage and to complete the forming process there are steps that need to take place. 1) To bind the group together, they need to form a bond by getting to know each other and forming a team mindset. 2) The alignment of their goals, shared purpose, and target for the group project is essential. 3) There needs to be a team culture set up that focuses on the positives, the beliefs, the values and norms of their behaviors to stay positive as a team. 4) The role of the leader must be established and set in this stage of the team building exercise (para 9). According to POD Admin (2012), the second objective of team building would be the storming stage and there are steps that need to take place when it comes to the storming stage also. 1) Keeping all the members of the team on the same purpose and goals for the team building. 2) Getting all of the team members to work together and experience each other as team members in different ways.

    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.
