LO3 - Discussion on the importance and dynamics of working within a team and the impact of team working in different environments. P5 – Discuss the importance of team dynamics in the success and/or failure of group work. P6 – Work within a team to achieve a defined goal. 5. Working Within a Team 5.1 Teamwork A team is ‘a group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project’. The main idea behind the creation of a team is having people working as a group to achieve a goal. Every team/group is different because it can be made up of people coming from diverse backgrounds that have different personalities, values and working styles (Skillyouneed.com, 2018). Remember, T – Together E – Everyone A – Accomplishes M – More W – With O – Organization R – Responsibility K – Knowledge These elements are the ingredients that can either make or break a team – if they are not balanced effectively. Goal: In the given context the author’s group had a specific goal which is to successfully complete the training program and all the group members worked as one to achieve it. Many members knew what they were doing and that was really when marching towards the team goal. A common and meaningful purpose sets the tone. Specific performance goals are an integral part of the teamwork. The author’s group always kept that one goal in their minds. The combination is essential to the performance. By staying rooted in the team’s commitment, today’s vision becomes tomorrow’s reality. Enura Indula (COL/A - 060329) Professional Practices Assigment - 1 20

5.2 Winning team What makes a great team? The answer is the individual members of the team. That is because each person plays a significant role within a group. This is better understood through the amount of responsibility they share for a project, activity or task and how much they are willing to get involved. The quicker the team members realize that the easier it will be for them to work out a plan on how to move forward, settle their differences, come up with the desirable results and complete their mission (Campbell, 2018). When the author’s team was formed the leader specially had concerns about the below aspects which ultimately made the group a winning group. Let each person shine – As members of the team the success of the team needs to be shared, not focused on a single person. The leader always made the other members of the team feel special and made them feel that they are the reason for the team success, which ultimately led the individual member to their own success (Campbell, 2018).

    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.
