2 Team dynamics Team dynamics refer to invisible forces which function among team members. Team dynamics can affect how a team performs or behaves (Hiriyappa, 2018). Take for example a team of five people whereby two members are friends. The friendship has an impact on performance. There is team spirit if the friendship includes the other members. This leads to good performance as the work is done together. Otherwise, the team will be sub-divided into two if the two friends do not socialize with the others thus, affecting work performance. There is trust, collective decision making, accountability, and creativity in a group with positive dynamics. Some contributory factors to team dynamics are leadership, roles, group think, and size.

    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.
