how to respond to a students response 4

In undergrad, you have the students who love group projects and then you have the students who hate group projects. The greatest personal challenge I have working in teams is to not do all the work myself. I’m a natural leader, so, I naturally want to be the one to set up the meetings and assign the tasks. I also want to complete all the tasks to ensure they get done correctly and on time.

Baldwin, Bommer, and Rubin (2013) describe ways to determine if your team is high performing: production output, member satisfaction, and capacity for continued cooperation. In a high performing team, you have to have swift and efficient production. Everyone on the team has to be satisfied with the product, and they have to continue to have successful meetings to continue the efficient product.

1 Corinthians 12:4-6 states “now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit. And there are diversities of ministrations and the same lord. And there are diversities of workings, but the same God, who worketh all things in all”. I interpret that to mean that within teams there are different personalities and different strengths that can contribute to success. Diversity is always needed within teams and in the workplace because this will contribute to generating a product that any audience can relate to. 1 Corinthians 12:14 goes on to state “For the body is not one member, but many”. I interpret this to mean that the body has different components that help it to run successfully and just like a successful team you have many members with different roles to make sure it’s successful.
