2 Lost at Sea You are adrift on a private yacht in the South Pacific. As a consequence of a fire of unknown origin, much of the yacht and it contents have been destroyed. The yacht is now slowly sinking. Your location is unclear because of the destruction of critical navigational equipment and because you & the crew were distracted trying to bring the fire under control. Your best estimate is that you are approximately one thousand miles south-southwest of the nearest land (Paul M. Nemiroff & William A. Pasmore)

8 AOTA’s Centennial Vision “We envision that occupational therapy is a powerful, widely recognized, science driven, and evidence- based profession with a globally connected and diverse workforce meeting society’s occupational needs.”
9 Team “…is a group of people who are mutually dependent on one another to achieve a common goal.” Source: The Pfeiffer Book of Successful Team-Building Tools
10 Team Development Model Rubin, Plovnick, and Fry, Task Oriented Team Development, 1975. Interpersonal Relationships
11 Interpersonal Relationships These are important! Take the time to get to know one another. But remember: When team members can't get along it is usually because of unresolved issues regarding goals, roles, & procedures. Team members don't have to be friends or even like each other to work well together.
12 Team Development Model Interpersonal Relationships Procedures Rubin, Plovnick, and Fry, Task Oriented Team Development, 1975.
13 Procedures Aim at consistent preparation and attendance. Plan on more multimedia communication (Wiki, Skype, e-mail). Give more than “feedback;” focus on perspectives and new ideas. Focus on the solutions, not the problems.

I have learned a ton about myself and myself as a member of a group, as well as the dynamics of group work. I have noticed after being a part of other interdisciplinary teams that every group is unique in their own way and I am interested to see how this group will form”. Shared by Nancy MacRae
