Document Summary

A group consists of two or more people interacting interdependently to achieve a common goal. Interaction is the most basic aspect of a group as it suggests who is in the group and who is not. They are social mechanisms by which we acquire many beliefs, values, attitudes, and behaviours. Formal work groups are established by organizations to facilitate the achievement of organizational goals. The most common formal group consists of a manager and those employees who report to that manager. Informal groups are groups that emerge naturally in response to the common interests of organizational members. Informal groups can either help or hurt an organization, depending on their norms for behaviour. While employees often know each other before new groups are formed, simple familiarity does not replace the necessity for team development: typical stages of group development. Leaders and trainers have observed that many groups develop through a series of stages over time.
