Unit 19- Developing Teams in Business (D1)
An evaluation of your own performance- what you did well/what you could have done better? Throughout all of the tasks that I took part in, I believe that I performed well in some of them but then in others I could have performed much better. Throughout all of the tasks I believe that I participated as much as possible in order to get the tasks completed, participation was important for the team because of the limited numbers within the team, if I didn’t participate as much as possible then the team may have struggled to complete all of the tasks. I always try to participate as much as possible within all of the tasks, if I don’t then I feel like I have let the team down and could have done better within the task. Another part in which I did well was proposing and developing ideas for the team, when we were given the task I would firstly think to myself about any ideas I may have for the task, then if I believed that one of the ideas was good I would tell the group and find out their opinions on the idea. I was particularly good at developing the ideas of the other team members, when they come up with an idea I would try to think of ways in which It could be improved upon, I believe the team found this helpful because they were struggling to come with more ideas so if I could develop the ideas of the other team members then we would not have to keep up with a lot of new ideas. The final part in which I believe I did well was my communication with the team, throughout all of the tasks I was always talking with the other team members trying to help them through any problems that they were having with their part of the task, communication was key for the whole team so we could understand what each team member was doing and whether they needed help with their part of the task. On the other hand I did have some weaknesses throughout the tasks, the first weakness of mine was I did not have a lot of confidence in some of the ideas that I had come up with and so was afraid to put these across to the team but if I had more confidence in them then the team may have seen them as good ideas and they may have worked well for the team. Secondly if I was struggling to understand what we had to do in the task then I would not look for any advice on what we will need to do I would try to work it out myself. I should have clarified with my team what we needed to do and if they didn’t know then we should have worked as a team to try and figure out what we needed to do. This was my biggest weakness because it meant that I struggled throughout the entire task and didn’t perform to the best of my ability. Another weakness of mine were my leadership skills, I believed that I would be able to control and lead the team in a good manner, but once the task had started I soon found out that I could have performed better. My first problem was my inability to decide on which part of the task that each team member should take part in, once I had finally given the roles to the team I then struggled to keep all the members motivated and as a result we were only able to complete half of the task. I should have tried to take control from the start and have more confidence in my ability of being a leader, without the confidence I struggled to take control and as a result we were unable to complete the task. An evaluation of the team’s overall performance- what you did well/ what could have been improved? As a team we had our strengths and weaknesses whilst working together, but as we went through the tasks we had to learn to work through the weaknesses and try to turn them into strengths. One of our big strengths as a team was our ability to communicate with each other in a good manner, throughout all of the tasks we tried to communicate with each other at the start of the task to identify what we needed to do as a team and how we are going to complete the task. Once we started the tasks we then had to communicate...
