Think about a popular TV show that you watch that focuses on small-group dynamics. This could be a popular TV drama, focused on the workplace, for example.

Write, individually, a one-page reaction to the small-group dynamics demonstrated in the show. From a communication perspective, what went wrong? How could the members have handled the situation differently? Post your reaction for your team. Review and comment on the reactions of each team member. Identify common observations.

Analyze, as a team, the small-group dynamics demonstrated in the videos by considering the following:

  • The scope and functions of the small group within the organization, such as idea generation, event planning, process or creation, evaluation, and quality control
  • The effectiveness of each member’s communication styles. What are the opportunities for improvement?
  • The type of leadership within the small group, such as fixed, rotational, or ad hoc
  • How the group leader and members communicate during group meetings
  • Communication obstacles, such as groupthink tendencies, credibility issues, and insufficient listening

Refer to this week’s readings to inform your analysis.

Part B

Create a group training presentation based on the communication deficiencies displayed in the video. Your training plan may be in the format of your choice.

  • You may choose a 15- to 20-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint®  presentation with speaker notes, or an equivalent multimedia program or technology application, such as video, audio, or web conferencing software.

Include the following in your group training presentation:

  • The communication skills the group must implement to become more effective
  • The roles each member must adopt to become more effective
  • The leadership skills the manager must demonstrate to become more effective
  • Appropriate managerial actions to mitigate communication obstacles
  • Conflict management strategies to encourage positive outcomes

Include a reference slide.

Format your training presentation according to appropriate course-level APA guidelines.

Submit your assignment.

Attached is the grading rubric I will use for this assignment. Please review it carefully before you start the assignment so that you clearly understand the requirements. Post any questions or concerns in the Course Questions forum.

  • For Local Campus students, these are 10- to 15-minute oral presentations accompanied by a multimedia presentation.
