Discussion: Teamwork in the Work Place

Think about a time when you worked in a group to achieve a specific goal. This may have been planning a party, working in a collaborative group for school, or working through a project for work. Consider the benefits and challenges as you worked through to achieving your goal. Now, think about if you added diversity to your group. Your group members may be from another country or even have very little experience or education. How might this impact the overall outcome of your project? As you begin to consider your future professional work, you might find that it will be necessary to work and collaborate with others to accomplish specific goals. Because of this, group think, individualism, and collectivism will be critical to understanding the behavior of others in the work place.

For this Discussion, you will you will explore individualism and collectivism and how each might impact the dynamics of a group.
