Leadership and Group Dynamics

...Leadership and Group Dynamics-Self Assessment Summary University of Phoenix - Axia College XCOM/100-Introduction to Communications The self-assessment was very easy to complete and provided a detailed insight to my ability to work within a group, as well as my ability to lead a group of people. The results provided by the assessment showed that I was near the average or above average levels in all the results. I was not necessarily surprised to find the scores were in the levels they were, but the areas in which I need to improve I did find interesting. One area I need to improve on is being more task-oriented. While my belief of being more of a macro-manager was verified, the analysis showed I was not as balanced a leader as I had pictured myself to be. The assessment also pointed out my need to improve in disciplining others. I have to admit, I was a little surprised by this finding since I do a pretty good job of yelling at people, and that most of the people on my crew tend to make sure I don’t get upset. Some areas that I liked seeing includes my ability to trust people. This I think does coincide with my ability to lead people by allowing them the freedom to complete the task. The other good thing I saw was the assessment of my ability to build and lead a group. While I did not place in the top tier, I was in the higher section of the second tier. Being an effective leader is key in my industry and to my......

Megatrends are long-term processes of transformation on a global scale with a broad scope and dramatic impact To successfully develop this combination of skills and qualities – and adopt what is, in effect, a ‘post-heroic’ leadership style – they may need to abandon much of the thinking and behavior that propelled them to the top of their organizations in the first place. But if they want their businesses to survive and thrive over the next two decades......

Leadership Training

...Leadership Training In Public Administration Mr. Khalid abdulaziz Introduction As leaderships training is one of the significant parts in each organization and it is one of the reasons to enhance the organization, this essay will discuses the two types of leadership and how they affect the organization. In Addition, this essay will take in consideration the organization structure and its culture. The main concern of this essay the relation between the leaders and their followers and how it is improved through leadership training. Background information In the recent years, many nations have seen a paradigm shift in public administration. This shift to a new paradigm is often referred to as new public management (NPM). In essence, NPM is based on two philosophies: economic rationalism and managerialism. In Australia, the implementation of reforms in public services have become more efficient, effective and economical (James 2005). This can be further enhanced when a market-oriented approach will be taken in public policies and with the introduction of business methods and practices in public sector management. Public sector management can be developed because of leadership training for organizational change. The ability to lead is not always acquired naturally. It is not always apparent and is not found in the behavior and personality of the individual. Proper education and training can draw the leadership ability and help it become...

Diversity Issues in Training Group Workers

...Diversity Issues in Training Group Workers Given the fact that the U.S. population is characterized by drastically increasing diversity, it is essential that group counselors be culturally competent practitioners (Bemak & Chung, 2004). An integral part of the training of group leaders is promoting sensitivity and competence in addressing diversity in all forms of group work. Being diversity competent is more complex in meaning than "respecting other people". To fully assimilate the meaning into our personal and professional beings, it is important for us to have a common understanding of the principles on which diversity competence is built. The "Principles for Diversity Competent Group Workers" (ASGW, 1999) addresses issues such as racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and ableism with sensitivity and skill. These principles emphasize the practitioner's responsibility to have a general understanding of the diverse cultural backgrounds of the group members so interventions are congruent with their worldviews. Most of the ethics codes of the various professional organizations now give some attenttion to applying these principles when working with diverse client populations. Guidelines for competence in diversity issues in group practice are discussed in a variety of sources, some of which include Arredondo and colleagues (1996), ASGW (1999), APA (1993), Bemak and Chung (2004), and Ethical Issues in Group Membership How can group leaders make potential......

My Refletion on Leadership and Communication Trainings

...My reflection on leadership and communication trainings. As a development practitioner it is increasingly inevitable to work with others in teams. While people in every workplace talk about building teams and working as a team, it is not always easy developing an effective team. Through reflection on the communication and leadership trainings which we have had, I have become aware of useful strategies to deal with issues and to gain commitment to the goals of the team. These strategies include effective communication skills, learning my qualities and weaknesses so that I can work on them and developing team building skills. All these are important for my learning and for my development as a professional. The following reflection forms are a summary of the trainings and how they have influenced me both as an individual and as a professional. Reflective journal - Day 1 1. What happened today, what topics are dealt with, what exercises did we do? | Today we discussed communication. First we had the exercise of speed dating. Through this exercise we shared among ourselves aware of our strengths and weaknesses as communicators. We then analysed how the exercise went, how it made us feel and the difficulties we might have faced in the process.During this training day we also discussed the qualities that make one a good communicator, as well as the attributes of leaders and managers.To illustrate the importance of some of the skills we had discussed we had an observation......

Leadership and Group Management

...Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Leadership & Group Management 1) What concepts could you apply to help you and your group members change this attitude? Are there specific techniques that you feel are effective in getting your team motivated and focused on achieving the project goals? There are numerous concepts that can be applied to enable members of a group change their attitudes. The concept I would apply in such a scenario is to play the role of the leader. The first and most important thing to acknowledge is leading by example. People are more willing to do something if there is someone doing it first. This is referred to as the law of the picture. Another useful technique that can be applied in such a scenario is setting short targets for the group to enable them feel encouraged and accomplished every time they meet them. 2) Which principle from John Maxwell’s work did you feel was salient and germane to getting the group to work or if you still need to apply one of Maxwell’s concepts, which would it be? Do you also feel that if you were to assume a leadership role in the group, are there things that you feel that you did that helped or hindered progress? The other concept that I would apply to ensure the success of the group is to ensure that I find a way for the group to succeed. I would do this for two reasons. First, people in a group are more likely to listen to their leader and work together if they are assured of success. the second reason is that......

Exploration on Group Leadership Styles

...Exploration on Group Leadership Styles Wilmington University Abstract This exploration paper will encompass some of the characteristics and preferences of good leadership styles enabling us to explore some theoretical approaches within group facilitation which best accommodate our own theories. Through continued researching of all these aspects of group leadership we could explore what might be most challenging to ourselves individually and at the same time assess what type of co-leader one could actually work with to obtain the most efficient results overall. In order to explore these topics and try to answer most of these questions, I began with Internet resources, along with some peer-reviewed journal reviews and lastly I reverted back to our course resources. Although some of the questions are not fully responded to directly, I have gained a greater knowledge into group leadership styles and group facilitation which exhibit how best to approach situations that might arise within a group, while at the same time maintaining focus on a solution. This provides the ability to gain the know-how to seek out what contravening factors caused these problems or issues, these enablers also gave me a clearer understanding about which direction, point of origin or whose involvements contributed to the problem. Exploration on Group Leadership Styles Looking at the theoretical approach to group facilitation, the selectee has to be from amongst all the members of the group......

This paper will compare therapy with a group vs. therapy in an individual session. Looking at the possible barriers and or challenges being therapists may possibly experience throughout the sessions they are facilitating. The paper will discuss the efficiency as well as the inefficiency of both group and individual therapy. It is very imperative for therapists to apply moral ethics in their practice. Study from several academic periodicals, trainings and textbook understandings are noted features for this paper. Groups The implementations of ethics in counseling is not to micromanage and/or try to inform someone of how to do their job, it is provided in order to help counselors and other professionals maintain standards within the profession one is in and it is the standard of behavior or action in relation to others. “A code of ethics for most professional organizations or associations is designed to articulate the standards of practice for a group of people.” (Kocet, 2006). Although ethics have many definitions, they are all intertwined to state the same meaning. According to Jacobs (2012), “Most ethical problems and situations deal with therapy and growth groups,......

Group Leadership and Conflict Summary

...Group Leadership and Conflict Summary SOC/110 July 27, 2015 Robert Holland Group Leadership and Conflict Summary In this week’s assignment we as a group, were to watch the two videos “Planning a Playground” and “Politics of Sociology”, discuss them as a group and write a summary. Being that this is my first online class that I have had to work with a group in I was very nervous about it. When doing discussions online, without prior physically meeting and getting to know one another, things can always take a turn that is not intended or needed. My team/group was great! Not only was the intent of our discussion clear but I also liked how we all posed questions within our discussions that made you really think. We challenged and discussed different views of these two videos which made the discussion that more intriguing. For the most part we viewed the videos in the same aspect but brought the creativity of thinking outside the box and it made the discussion even more productive. This by far has been a great experience with my team. Each discussion that has been transpired has come from and with a positive attitude and an open mind. We were able to take our time and really discuss things without being rushed. Upon some further reviewing, I just realized that we were missing two other team members. Not sure what happened but they never made it into the discussion. Although I haven’t mastered and I am still trying to learn my way into the different arenas of the online......

...Leadership Training Show Death Crawl scene from “Facing the Giants” http://youtu.be/-sUKoKQlEC4 The Death Crawl The team had been losing and seemed sure another loss was all but certain Friday night. The coach noticed this and decided to take the leader of the team, who was also displaying a very negative attitude, and make him do the death crawl. * Ok so pulling it back to us right here; let’s find the correlation between us and them. * Who is the coach? (SL or Lead) * Who is the kid doing the death crawl? (lead) * Who are the guys watching from the side line? (associates) Get the Blindfold * Why did the coach put blindfold on him? * The reason he did this was so the boy would not get to the “target” distance and stop or feel anxiety about how much further he had to go. * Would it be fair to say we as leads sometime refuse to put the blindfold on? Touchdown! * What does the coach do to get the boy to the end zone? * Gets down on his hands and knees encouraging the boy and walking each step with him * How can this translate to the LOD or lead role in our store? Moral of the Story * What is the moral of the video? * Initially I took it as how aiming for a target could limit us. But I just watched this clip again and realize the purpose of this scene goes far beyond hitting or exceeding a target. * Instead, this scene is about giving everything you’ve got – everything – towards whatever it is...

Group Leadership and Conflict Summary

...Group Leadership and Conflict Summary Group Interaction Our group interaction was non-existent. Two of five group members posted to the discussion area by Sunday. What I believe was an issue was that it was just a discussion instead of a group assignment. At least with a group assignment, like a paper, we would have to collaborate to complete a task for a grade. I cannot really answer many of the other questions pertaining to the group interaction because of the lack of participation. Although, in past experiences with Learning Teams, things go very well. I have experienced conflict within most of the Learning Teams in the beginning and only once they were not resolved by the end of the first assignment. Conflict Styles The conflicts can be constructive and destructive depending on the situation. The collaborative groups utilize conflicts as an opportunity to provide innovative solution for an issue. The leadership capability of the group leader can develop a strategy to avoid destructive conflicts in a group. The conflicts can be broadly categorized into five groups based on two dimensions which are concern for own goals and concern for group goals. When group members give low priority for own goals and low priority for group goals then it can be referred as avoidance style of the members. When an individual in group gives high priority for group goals and low priority for own goals then it can be treated as accommodation style. When a team member gives little......

...compare and more. When I was crying, she made me laugh. When I suffered losses in my family she was there. She truly is a special lady and friend. We traveled together as account-coordinators and did log miles. Unfortunately, there was nothing available to clean our make-up brushes. Sure, there was alcohol or some other cleaner that smelled like lighter fluid, but they left the brushes with an oily or sudsy residue. I did the only thing any good make-up artist diva would do. I started mixing my own recipe. I mixed for years dating back to 1997 and refined the recipe again in 2010. Currently Rebecca works as a free-lance make-up artist for several cosmetic companies. She also conducts master classes on make-up application for groups and individuals. Services are also provided for weddings, proms and photo shoots. Presently, she is spreading the news about "Bombshell in a Bottle". I am very proud to share these wonderful "Bombshell" tools with my artist/cosmetic friends and soon to be new friends, acquaintances and consumers at home. May the task of cleaning your brushes never be laborious, but always joyous! Please believe me when I say this product was truly made with the love I have for this industry. Enjoy with blessings.
