...Group 4 Project Reflection
Group 4 project was an interesting learning experience. It forced me to work with people that I haven't worked with before, take into account our team's different opinions and make the most out of what we had.
We started out with an idea, water suspended on a table without a cup, that we spent a whole meeting on, before we realized that it was not possible to do it, which left us with two meetings to decide what we were going to do. I was then unable to make the two next meetings, and this caused major planning problems, which were reflected during our presentation, added to the fact that I did not talk enough with my team members about what we were going to do, which left our whole group pretty much clueless on our actual presentation. Added to this, we all had different ideas about what we wanted to do with the paper helicopter, what size should it be, how we were going to present it, which led to arguments on the day of the presentation. I am usually stubborn, and it is hard to make me change my mind when I am set in a direction, but we finally managed to come to a compromise which satisfied everyone. From this, I learned that my idea is not necessarily the only working solution, and that there isn't always one solution to a problem, although better planning and better communication could have avoided such problem on the actual presentation day.
Regarding the actual...

...In this assignment I will talk about my reflection upon the course since I joined and how I’ve managed to work with team members to create a group presentation, and also what I have learnt from this.
We were asked to create a presentation about a particular company chosen by us, and talk about the key management functions of the group. We then selected 3 different types of key management functions which we thought were important. We chose;
• Human Resources
My part was the Marketing. For this I had a few months to research the company thoroughly and put together a slideshow full of useful information. I went on to the GHD website (the company me and my group chose) and researched what was required in order to become a manager for the chosen role.
During the term, we had regular meetings, almost every week and discussed what was to be done next. Every week we would get a task set and everyone had to bring in their work the following week. I missed out on the first few weeks but then brought myself back into role when the time got closer and gave in 100%. I done my work weeks before and got the team leader to approve of it, he gave me feedback and I re-done the work and presented it again until the final draft was complete. We then put everyone’s work together and created our final presentation and scripts.
Throughout the weeks, I also learnt a lot about the management functions in the company,...

Group Meeting #1: Norms & Purpose
Our therapy groups were assigned today shortly after the viewing of a film in class. My fellow group members consisted of Bryant, Earl, Stephan and Tracy, and our group was designated with the concept of reality therapy. Our group had several tasks to complete prior to class dismissal. The list of things to complete included: appointing a group facilitator, developing the group purpose and a minimum of 3 norms for the group, setting-up a schedule for member-led exercises, and reading our group theory in Appendix 1.
We started our group session with a short icebreaker as a way for each member to introduce him/herself. We were seated with our seats facing each other in a circle. Initially, some members seemed a bit hesitant to share since we weren’t yet familiar with each other. Their hesitation was obvious in the body language they displayed (arms crossed over their chest, leaning back in chair, etc) and the slow development of discussion at first. The icebreaker seemed effective as each member got to share their name and an embarrassing time in their life. By an informal vote and a democratic method, I was appointed as the group facilitator. The other group members indicated that it seemed that I had some displayed some task...
...member of a group, than they it would be whilst working alone. Many scholars have researched the reasons as to why in depth, and have had interesting conclusions, both relating to the effects on the individual and then to the group as a whole. I aim to discuss these reasons, whilst drawing on my own experiences, in the hope that I can identify some possible solutions.
The thing to consider in this scenario is groups versus individuals. Kerr & Park (2003) state, ‘…the effect of the presence of others on performance, one of psychology’s oldest questions, remains relevant for the study of group performance.’ When one is working on a project alone, they have no option but to put in one-hundred percent effort and remain motivated throughout in order to be successful. However, when they are part of a group-effort, they are able to slack in performance and still have a fighting opportunity for success. I can refer personally to group-work in which I was involved in back in my secondary school days. I was part of a group called ‘Young Enterprise’ where I acted as an assistant to the marketing director, along with two other members. We were entrusted to handle the advertising of our product, and obviously had to work together but also had individual tasks. I was not prepared for the role when I assigned to it, and often passed my work onto the other assistants. Propp (1999) believes...
