Structure and Culture of Groups and Teams

Describe a team in which you are or have been involved. The team should be a workplace team in which nurses are members. What made this team successful? What hurdles did the team overcome to complete its tasks?

In your discussion, consider the following:

  • Why did this team form? What was its purpose?
  • How did nursing interact with team members from other disciplines, if any were on the team? Consider the attributes listed in the Miers and Pollard article.
  • What type of leadership was in place? How did the team make decisions?
  • How did the team members collaborate with each other? Give an example.
  • What are some examples of how the team built on each other’s strengths?
  • How did it feel to be a part of this team?

Write a succinct initial post of at least 150 words. Demonstrate clarity of thought and precision in writing. Support your discussion with at least two references other than the required readings.

Team Norms

Resources

Levi (2017) described the four main functions of group norms (p. 53):

  • Express central values to support team identity building.
  • Coordinate team activities.
  • Define appropriate team behavior.
  • Create a unique group identity.

Consider a team in which you have been a member.

  • Describe the goals of the group and summarize the norms that defined the group.
  • Identify group norms that supported effective group function and group norms that may have stifled creative expression or created unnecessary conformity.

Write a succinct initial post of at least 150 words. Demonstrate clarity of thought and precision in writing. Support your discussion with at least one scholarly reference about the impact of group norms on team functioning. The reference should be in addition to your required readings.

Response Guidelines

Read the initial posts of all your peers and respond to at least two, providing comments and questions that encourage critical thinking and insight.

Cohesion, Inclusion, and Identity

Resources

Diversity may be exhibited in many forms: ethnic, cultural, style of learning, or methods of organizing. In your course text, Levi addresses the role of individualism and collectivism. Complete the survey on pages 298–300 of the text.

In your discussion:

  • Address where you fall on the continuum of individualism and collectivism. Why is this an important concept in terms of teamwork?
  • Describe your experience working with an individual (or team) in which the person’s preference would fall on the opposite end of the continuum from you. For example, you might be more inclined toward individualism, and the other person might more inclined toward collectivism. How did you work effectively with this person? If you did not, what were the challenges?
