Group Observation

Group Observation

QUESTION

The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with the opportunity to observe a community meeting or any organizational group in action to determine effective structure and dynamics, as well as make noteworthy recommendations. If you are unable to attend a meeting in person, feel free to watch a meeting online.

Discuss any meeting “sins” that you may have noticed as you observed. Note any other areas you may have observed.  For example, was there a goal to the meeting? Was an agenda presented? How was the meeting managed? Was the leader effective or ineffective? Explain. Was participation among the members equalized or one-sided? Were there quiet or dominating members in the group? Was conflict managed appropriately (if conflict was present)?

Any distracting nonverbal communication? Was creative or critical thinking encouraged? Recommendations at the end of the paper are required. Your report should be error free, 12 pt. font size, double spaced and contain a minimum of 2 content pages. Cite our textbook throughout the paper using APA style. Add a title page at the beginning and a reference page at the end of the paper
