Week 6 Reflections

My learning so far? I have learnt to work in a team, through better and worse, I have learnt that having a ‘team leader’ doesn’t make that person the boss, I have learnt that communicating between team members is very important. Also that the Belbin test wasn’t very accurate nor very useful as for our team, the roles don’t matter so much and everyone needs to do as much work in researching and evaluating. Thankfully, we are all working well together now. 

My learnings so far are going all right as far as I know. I can work well in teams, I can use different platforms successfully. If there is any advice on what to do or how to change or improve, I would willingly hear it so that I can work better for the rest. Constructive criticism is always helpful.

As a team, I believe we have learnt a lot, especially about team work and trust. We can work together, we can work as a team and we have gotten through some challenges. We have learnt to cater for others needs when necessary, supporting each other with work when they need it.

As a class, I believe everyone has had similar challenges and therefore have learnt similarly. Our work is monitored by what we write and how we work in groups. Our personal groups ensure we do our work. All groups are at the same stage and if another group has managed doing work, clearly it was possible and therefore this shows how hard our group has worked, staying up to date.

    Good point about the Belbin team roles and test. It was originally designed as a team forming tool. Nowadays I use it to give starting teams a common language about roles and goals. That makes it much easier to discuss tasks and underlying conflicts.
