Group Dynamics

All companies are interested in group dynamics as part of their productivity efforts. But they often settle for less than common sense ideas when it comes to the understanding that involves group and team dynamics.

However, to become job-ready, and to work in teams, means that individuals need to develop group dynamics skills.

Excelling in these skills will help individuals work more effectively and to become more successful in everything that they do.

Remember, that there are many types of groups within organizations. And, sometimes, there can even be groups within groups. Here are some of the different kinds of groups that can exist:

  1. Task groups.
  2. Interest groups.
  3. Reference groups.
  4. Command groups.
  5. Friendship groups.
  6. Functional groups.

But what is a group?

Interestingly, there is no one simple definition of what a group is. In this training, a collection of some varied descriptions are explored.

Let’s briefly go through a few examples that demonstrate how definitions are crucial to understanding groups. To illustrate, a group is a:

  • Selection of individuals who are interacting with one another.
  • A social unit consisting of two or more persons who perceive themselves as belonging to a group.
  • Selection of interdependent individuals.
  • Gathering of individuals who join together to achieve a goal.
  • Collection of individuals who are trying to satisfy some needs through their joint association.
  • Collection of individuals whose interactions are structured by a set of roles or norms.
  • Selection of individuals who influence each other.
    1. While definitions are all well and good, it’s not going to fully prepare people to work in groups.

      That’s the challenge that we set out to address through this training. Attending this training will help learners understand group roles, understand the phases of group socialization, and group cohesiveness.

      This knowledge will not only help them work in teams, but the training will also ensure that they understand the stages of group development, the various types of communication required, and the difference between groups and teams.
