Discussion Response to Leanda

Groups develop for companionship, camaraderie, security, esteem and an outlet for frustrations.  Groups can benefit from their diversity of viewpoints and the potential for improvements and solutions (Loving, 2021).  Groups recognize authority is needed to solve issues more effectively.  A leader will emerge from the group by an election or by the personality of a leader.  Success of the group depends on the formal leader’s and dominant member’s ability to reinforce positive roles over negative roles.  Positive group roles include encourager, clarifier, harmonizer, idea generator, ignition key, standard setter and detail specialist (Manning & Curtis, 2019).  I am most like the encourager, harmonizer and ignition key roles. Negative group roles include ego tripper, negative artist, above it all person, aggressor, jokester, avoider and power victim (Manning & Curtis, 2019).  I am most like the avoider to a very mild amount.Effective groups provide positive outcomes, they understand other members’ special contributions and understand that outcomes are better achieved by groups than individuals.  Many differences can arise in the groups and it is unlikely that a group will emerge successfully at all times (Parks-Chapman & Schub, 2018).  To correct the negative behaviors of a group and to make it more successful, it is important to look at each member and determine what roles they play in the group.  A leader should show positive and beneficial actions, so that the group can follow.  The leader should let members know how important they are to the group and how they contribute to the group’s success.  Positive behaviors should be encouraged (Manning & Curtis, 2019).On the Big Five Personality Characteristics I received the highest scores in openness to experience, conscientiousness and neuroticism.  I received the lowest scores on the scale’s extroversion and agreeableness.  High scores in openness to experience, conscientiousness and neuroticism would show I am creative, insightful, curious, organized, self-disciplined, dependable, anxious, emotional, and temperamental.  Due to the additional knowledge over the past few weeks of class, I can identify my weaknesses:  anxiety, overly emotional and temperamental. My strengths are being creative, insightful, dependable, curious, and organized.  As part of a team, I have recognized positive roles each member can play and how it can affect the group.  I would follow positive characteristics that I have learned since the first weeks of class and avoid negative behaviors that could damage the group’s effectiveness.  As a leader, I can encourage positive behavior and roles to promote maximum strengths and minimizing negative behaviors on the team.  I would discuss problems in a non-judgmental way, avoid attacking the members and ask why they may be acting a certain negative way.  I have grown as a leader and a team member by learning what is positive and negative attributes of a leader and team members.  I can always grow more.  There will always be new situations to learn from.ReferencesLoving, V.
