Members recognise their interdependence and understand both personal and team goals are best accomplished with mutual support. Time is not wasted struggling over territory or seeking personal gain at the expense of others. Members feel a sense of ownership for their jobs and unit because they are committed to the goals they helped to establish. Members think they are grouped together for administrative purposes only. Individuals work independently, sometimes at cross purposes with others. Members tend to focus on themselves because they are not sufficiently involved in planning the unit’s objectives. They approach their job simply as hired hands.
Team versus Group Members contribute to the organisation’s success by applying their unique talent and knowledge to team objectives. Members work in a climate of trust and are encouraged to express openly ideas, opinions, disagreements and feelings. Questions are welcomed. Members are told what to do rather than being asked what the best approach would be. Suggestions are not encouraged. Members distrust the motives of colleagues because they do not understand the role of other members. Expressions of opinion or disagreement are considered divisive or non- supportive.
Team versus Group Members practise open and honest communication. They make an effort to understand each other’s point of view. Members are encouraged to develop skills and apply what they learn on the job. They receive the support of the team. Members are so cautious about what they say that the real understanding is not possible. Game playing and communication traps may occur. Members may receive a good training but are limited in applying it to the job by the supervisor or other group member.
Team versus Group Members recognise conflict is a normal aspect of human interaction but they view such situations as an opportunity for new ideas and creativity. They work to resolve conflict quickly and constructively. Members participate in decisions affecting the team but understand their leader must make a final ruling whenever the team cannot decide, or an emergency exists. Positive results, not conformity, are the goal. Members find themselves in conflict situations, which they do not know how to resolve. Their supervisor may put off intervention until serious damage is done. Members may or may not participate in decisions affecting the group. Conformity often appears more important than positive results.
