Group Dynamics

With the idea that “two heads are better than one”, companies often assign tasks to groups of employees and require them to work together for obtaining a success. Different from an aggregation, a group requires two or more individuals sharing the same purposes and frequently interacting to one another to achieve a common goal (Arnold, E. & Boggs, K. U. 2011). There are different stages in the development of a group, which are forming, storming, norming, and performing. While forming allows members to initially get to know each other, storming is a phase characterized by arguments and conflicts, norming leads individuals to open discussions, and performing is when members can work the most independently, productively, and flexibly (Creasia & Friberg, 2011). Clearly knowing these stages will allow the group to obtain the common goal in a cooperative and successful manner.

A class of students is an example of group. There are many students in a class, and they interact to each other to do the group projects or complete the assignments. All of these students have to behave in a good manner and follow the professor’s instructions and test schedules. The common goal for everyone enrolling in a class is passing with a high grade. A wedding party is also a collection of people, yet, it’s called a non-group as not everyone in a wedding party knows each other. They do not discuss or interact to one another for a common goal. They might be never in the same place at the same time. For a successful outcome and members’ satisfaction, group dynamics, which is a way of communication from both parties, is critical. Group dynamics is not only a discussion to clarify doubts, confusion or misunderstanding. It requires interactions from different parties for receiving and giving feedback to others ((Arnold, E. & Boggs, K. U.
