Chapter 10 - Teams
Group: 2 or more individuals interacting for a purpose but not a common goal
Team: A group whose collective effort is greater than individual input working towards a
common goal (a selfless mindset).
Most likely will be more and more teams in the future.
Know the differences between formal and informal groups – page 226/227.
Groups are good because…
Performance can increase
Job satisfaction can increase
Communication can be better
Perception improves collectively (Gestalt Theory)
Groups are bad because…
It’s hard to trust.
Guest Speaker – Coach Greg Marshall, UWO Mustangs
On a team, you must sacrifice your wants for the good of the team..
It takes more than skill, you must be mentally tough.
Teams that play like a team, those athletes are willing to work a little harder
because they care about each other and don’t want to let each other down.
Always looking for a good fit, people that can wok together.
Speeches create an arousal level, but soon you forget about it.
“Family comes first.”
