Dustin Taylor Week 5 Forum Team Leadership Encourager – 9 I guess I'm kind of middle of the road with regards to being “the encourager.” To be honest, I think questions like “In most meetings, I am less likely than others to “put down” the ideas of teammates” are difficult to answer. I probably think I'm encouraging, but I don't know what other people would think. I do try to make an effort to not “put down” people's ideas. I know from experience that people are less likely to put new ideas on the table if they think they will be ridiculed or “put down.” Gatekeeper – 7 I rank very low as a meeting gatekeeper. I understand that some people find it difficult to speak up and participate in meetings. Unfortunately, I don't take it upon myself to help them out. Should I? Of course, I should. In a perfect world, I wouldn't have those people on my team. I want people that have enough confidence to speak up and be heard. Harmonizer – 8 Once again, I scored low. I would love for the group to be peaceful, but just don't count on me

Unformatted text preview: to be the one to enforce the peace. I don't like people trying to smooth over “disagreements” I'm having with another team member, so I show them the same courtesy. If I'm arguing, then I feel strongly about what I'm saying. I'm sure they do too. Initiator – 12 I scored well in the “initiator” category. I guess I like to get the team organized and focused on the meeting. That sounds pretty accurate. I want to make sure the group knows what needs to be accomplished, and after that, let em' go. Summarizer – 6 I hate taking notes and I hate keeping track of things being said during a meeting. If it were up to me to take minutes, the meetings would be very short. Everybody has something that they despise, and mine is taking notes. This has probably hurt me in the past (school especially). But it's just something I don't feel comfortable doing....
