Charrandry DB 4


Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 300-500 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions with your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

In your primary task response, you will focus on the dynamics of being part of a group.  (Please refer to page 410 in your e-book for the definition of a real group). Reflect back on a time when you were part of a group at your workplace.  Address the following questions: How would you define your group at work?  Do you think group members in your group had influence over other members?  Why or why not?  Was there a hierarchy in your group?  If so, please describe it and explain how it formed and was sustained.   Discuss at least two possible negative effects of groups in the workplace.
