HRM 345-1403A-01 Building Effective Teams
Conflict exists in nature and, by extension, in all human relationships. Conflict can be something to avoid or embrace, or a more neutral approach can be taken. You will lead a group discussion on the subject among your peers. You decide that to generate a lively discussion, it is important to create a level of understanding of the role of conflict in groups and how conflict can be used to move a group forward.

As teams progress, they pass through stages of development. You understand that being prepared with tools and techniques at each stage is important. There is a team forming that will take on a production line. You want to be ready to provide training and development resources for this team as soon as they start working together.
You research various team-development models and pick one model that you will use to determine team-building activities before the team members start working together. Develop a plan that addresses the following:
- What will you do to prepare the team for working together before they start?
- Discuss the training and development activities that you will use to build trust and productivity in the group once they start working together.
- How will you measure whether trust exists within the team?
- How will you measure the effectiveness of this new team in each of the early stages of 3, 6, and 9 months of them working together?
You must include a minimum of 2 scholarly references.
