Team dynamics are highly important at workplace where we work in team based environment. The team dynamics can show a great impact on team’s performance, product quality, organization reputation, stock prizes, etc.
Ineffective team dynamics: There could many reasons within the team why they are ineffective, such are: Lacking of Unity: The individuals in a team don’t have common understanding on their goals or missions what they have to do, team members don’t agree to each other, and team members pulled into other external projects rather putting their efforts in their assigned project. Improper organization: If there is no well formed organization where we work, things don’t go in right directions, like under estimating project budget, project timelines and schedules. This can leads to lack of resources and not meeting the deadlines, as a result, it will impact on the project policies, regulation and lose of contracts. Lack of knowledge: The member might be not well trained about to get them ready to start working, lack of information or skill required for the project can leads to bad results.
Effective team dynamics: Effective team members are highly skill and proactive when issues arrive. Effective team members able to understand the mission and goals of the project. All team members shows up and participate in meetings either physically or virtually and acknowledge their tasks. Team members participate in group discussions and they listen to each other as every idea from all the corners is important. I am in an organization, in a team where my team is very effective as we take action items into our plates and work with responsible towards delivering the action items or tasks.

Some time ago, we decided to come up with a group of peers aimed at identifying an investment idea that would boost our income. Our mandate was to brainstorm each other and come up with an amicable idea that would not frustrate us at the implementation stage. This being the case, we had to begin by encouraging an open discussion for all the seven members. The reason for encouraging everyone to come up with suggestions was apparent. If we allowed only a few members to propose, they would convince the rest of the members to buy into their idea, without considering how sound it was. Hence, every member had to be given time, and turn-taking was effectively applied (Salas, 2019).
We had to make sure that the final idea that we would settle for was based on logic and how viable the investment idea was, rather than going by voting to see which plan would be backed by the majority. Also, we made sure that the leadership of the team was not dominated by one person. Instead, it was based on what we were to discuss in that sitting. If it were about the human resources required, we would use a different leader with when we were to discuss the financial viability of the idea. We also ensured that the goals of our team are clear to all the members, and the agenda of any meeting we did was communicated two weeks before the meeting. This was to ensure that a lot of time is not wasted while trying to come up with the agenda of the day. Lastly, we would always conduct a sitting to asses our effectiveness in achieving our objectives, as well as areas that we needed to rectify(Salas, 2019). Application of these dynamics bore fruits, for we settled for a very viable idea, acceptable to all members, as well as one that became a success. I’d say that working as a team, proper communication as well as pursuing a common objective led to the success of our team.
