Individual & Group Dynamics
OVERVIEW To maintain and nurture an effective team and be able to predict their success, it is important to assess the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of the individuals. Assessing the role the individual plays and contributes to the group dynamic is essential. It is not simply a matter of offering a “cookie-cutter” solution to everyone.
