I feel value and attitude differences in our team will create a positive impact on our group's effectiveness. The diversity on our team brings to the group innovative thinkers from all types of educational and workplace backgrounds. The team created originates from all across the United States and groups together via the University Of Phoenix, an online University that promotes organizational team relationships for its education experience. In a team oriented environment values play a big part of how members fill that culture with self-disciplined people who are willing to go the extra mile to fulfill their responsibilities. Values are defined as broad preferences concerning appropriate courses of action or outcomes. (University Of Phoenix On Line, E-Text pp.
63). Values play a big part on how people think and make decisions. Some examples of values that make a team successful are things like competitiveness objectivity, respect, energy, vision, attitude, leadership, understanding, and excellence. Whether or not people on a team think introverted or extroverted the individual who can have the discipline to pay attention to small detail and the big picture says a lot about that person. To add to that, this is the type of people I feel who are on Team "A." (" When you have disciplined people, you don't need hierarchy. When you have discipline thought, you don't need bureaucracy.
When you have disciplined action, you don't need excessive controls." ). (Jim Collins, web). Another form of diversity on our team consists of different attitudes. Attitude is defined as a predisposition to respond in a positive or negative way to someone or something in one's environment.
(University Of Phoenix On line E-Text pp 63-69). I feel that our team accepts criticism well and adapts, learns and overcomes differences in attitudes. A well diverse team such as ours is a recipe for a high performance team. We may have some members of Team A who bring to the table different skill levels different leadership abilities and different socioeconomic backgrounds.
This type of diverse team can combine these essential ingredients and together with core values be very successful. References University of Phoenix On line E-text pp. 63-69 Collins, Jim, Http//www. attitude- leaders.
