The high school debate club scenario: The debate club consisted of more than 20 members. I
worked with this same people for a period of two years. The team was cohesive and effective in
its actions in the many decisions that required to be made and in choosing debaters for various
motions. During this period we achieved the goal of beating our main adversaries.
The soccer team scenario: This role only lasted for a day as I was picked to play on behalf of
one of their team who had fallen sick. The team consisted of about 15 people who I didn’t really
know though I had met with some of them on various occasions. The urgency of my call
allowed no communication between myself and other team members. For this reason, the game
ended up pretty badly and blames started being passed over to different members.
In scenario one, team effort was well demonstrated, the members remained focused and
motivated resulting to exceptional results. In Scenario 2, members were demotivated, there was
lack of effective communication which has negative results. In scenario 2, when the team lost, all
the members concentrated on passing the blame over to one another, which led to more
confusion and feelings of disappointments. When I tried to advise them to forget and learn from
the goal then aim to train better for the next game, my advice was ignored.
My team of six is dynamic and seeks to work together as best as they can in order to achieve
their goals. While a lot of other tasks that needed to be addressed came up in the middle of the

Articulation of ideas
Defusing and resolving conflict
Concern for team members
The team demonstrated exceptional abilities in general concern for each other which resulted to
enhanced abilities of sincerity, increased morale and in conflict resolution. The openness in the
communication gave chance for better articulation of ideas.
Identification of issues
Consideration of options
Openness to criticism
The team showed an incredible
opportunity in maintaining focus
regardless of the number of distractions that constantly during the exercise. The main
weaknesses that however faced the team included lack of openness towards criticism, in
accountability for their actions, and in a way also in the scheduling of activities.
The task involves making decisions on the overall performance of the tea, supporting evidence
for our team, the general effectiveness in meeting the objectives and making the
recommendations needed for improvement.
Communication within my team was effective and opinions were regarded highly. Members
listened to each other’s opinions without interruptions, the best ideas were adopted and then the
rest were kept pending in case of future use. The open communication enabled the team to solve
conflicts quickly. In case had missed communication, we would not have met the deadline
effectively and would have missed on most aspects of the project (Bird, 2015).
Planning for the activities of the team and took much time. The instructions that had given to us
were specific and straightforward which made planning even easier. I then ensured that every
one of my team members knew their exact tasks and roles. Though the time required to meet the
deadline was limited, planning made us to reach the deadline in time. Had we not planning, the
members would not have understood their roles.
My team members were all committed to achieve our common goal. If this committed had not
been evident, it could have led to the loss of focus, which would have in turn caused delays. The
commitment enabled us to achieve the goals effectively.
Everybody in my team was presented with equal opportunities, the role of the team leader was
well defined out and everyone was assigned to handle a given task (West, 2014).
The recommendations were as follows;
More communication would have prevented most of the hiccups we experienced
We should have scheduled our time more effectively
Increased self-motivation would have seen us achieve even better
More concentration from the team members would have prevented some of the disputes
