This report is based on the objectives I have to accomplish during my filed work trip to Dhaal Atoll Rinbudhoo. Dhaal Atoll has a total of 7165 ( seven thousand one hundred and sixty five people ) population of which the island Rinbudhoo occupies the second least population with 526 ( five hundred and twenty six ) people. Out of 526 people, 278 are males and 249 are females. Out of 249 females, 125 are in the age of 15 years to 45 years. There are 35 children who are under 5 years of age, of which 18 are girls and 17 are boys. It is a small ( 16.1 hactors ), clean and peaceful island with kind and co-operative people living there. The island was very much affected by 2004 Tsunami disaster and that is the reason for the less number of people living there now. Because of the devastating Tsunami disaster, half of the population has migrated to Male atoll Thulusdhoo hoping for better services and rest who are living in Rinbudhoo island has decided not leave their home place with a great courage to develop their island. As a result, they have achieved a lot so far. This island has some unique characterists as well . One of which is that this island is famous for gold and silver smith in Maldives. There is a health centre opened on 18th March of 2009 with a total of 4 staffs , an assistant community health officer, an assistant administrative officer, a family health officer and a laborour. The health centre was opened by the president of Maldives, his excellency Mr. Mohamed Nasheed with a great hope of providing services as a first category health centre. But, due to some political reasons and government policies, the health centre is running as a health post. Only thing which was added is a temporary medical officer, who was on leave when we started our field trip work there and the other three staffs, family health officer, assistant administrative officer and the laboror are continuing right now. The health centre includes Office, ward, labour room, consultation room, store and a treatment room. This health centre provides 8 hours services to the community with the absence of laboratory services and an ambulance. When there is no doctor, the assistant community health officer has to manage the patients. This report consists of an introduction part which I am continuing here, literature, observation, conclusion and finally the recommendation. The literature part is as follows. Ibrahim Shaam 2

In each organization, there must be a team established. “A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a ask, job, or project. Team members (1) operate with a high degree of interdependence, (2) share authority and responsibility forself-management, (3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work towards a common goal and shared rewards(s)”. ( ). The team consists of different types of players in it which includes contributors, collaborators, communicators and challengers. We have to try to involve the people as much as possible in order to build the teams. “ This involvement increases ownership and c ommitment, retains your best employees, and fosters an environment in which people choose to be motivated and contributing. It is also important for team building.” ( Susan M. Heathfield and Michigan State University, 2003-2004 ).

There are four stages of team development. They are: “ Forming - formalities are preserved and members are treated as strangers. Storming - members start to communicate...
