“Class B stars are very luminous and blue. […] As B stars are so powerful, they only live for a relatively short time. Thus, due to the low probability of kinematic interaction during their lifetime, they do not, and are unable to, stray far from the area in which they were formed.”
While this highlights our cohesion, our team ‘literal” name, Aurora, defines our dynamism and diversity:

roups are defined as a collection of two or more people who work with one another regularly to achieve common goals. Groups evolve into teams when the group works actively together to achieve a common purpose for which they hold themselves collectively accountable.

On the other hand, those two who knew tasks better were chosen as leaders and others were researchers. Next, all my group mates participated in analyzing, searching and working according to the prescriptive task and made a final decision.

Even the employees were happy because this showed the level of importance they have since Apple would be considered a high end retailer in the technology industry. I think this is a good way of making a relationship between an employee and manager more casual instead of it being a strict manner. Even the way the store is structured shows how Apple wants the company to be looked at.

Introduction: Individual Reflection on Team Experience
Today in many industries and organizations group/team work is a tool for effective achievement of organizational goals. Understanding the way groups develop and how they impact organizational success is important to the effective use of groups in organizations. One of the most common models to describe how groups develop was described by Tuckman. Tuckman studied group development as it was seen in group therapy. This was then extrapolated to involve the development of all groups and teams that exist in areas such as those seen in organizations. In 1966, Tucker proposed that group development progressed through four identifiable

THE POWER OF INFLUENCE AND TEAM-WORK IN A MULTI-LEVEL MARKETING ORGANIZATION
In the world of business there are many different approaches taken in order to influence the sale. Some businesses take the big box store approach selling and advertising their merchandise through a larger entity such as a Wal-Mart, Home Depot or Best Buy. Some take an exclusive approach selling their merchandise only through exclusive retailors such as Nordstrom’s. With these types of businesses there is always a middle man between the manufacturer and the final customer. In a direct marketing organization the middle man (the retailor) is shut out.

A leadership style is how the task is approached while motivating and instructing a team. Without an effective leader the completion of the goal is reduced.
The authoritarian leader tells people how they want things done without discussing it with others. This style is commonly seen used in services such as the Army, where a strict role of discipline is expected from soldiers under higher commands. In war, there is no time to think so a set task can help prevent deaths and mistakes. It also helps newer recruits know what to do when they

There is a multitude of aspects that all culminate into the success of a team, from traits and behaviors, to the attitude of a team leader and its members down to the overall knowledge base that is shared in the group dynamic. When working in a group dynamic, having sub groups or individuals working on specific targets and goals is common. Establishing the rules of communication early and how tasks will be handles will go far in mitigating problems that may arise along the way. Breakdowns in coordination can happen at any given moment, and because of the group interdependence, a small breakdown can escalate and encroach onto other areas.

The Lumen Team is obviously much more motivated and creative than the Absorb Team. This situation is created by the leadership styles of the team leaders.

It can come to conflicts or misunderstandings within the team, and it is very different from an individual writing process and a collaborative writing process. People have to think about how to do brainstorm different in a team or as an individual, how will the individual revise and edit his work different from the team, and how can you solve problems and conflicts that may arise.

Before you can learn about how the polarity management model works, you must first be able to understand what polarities actually are. Polarities are issues that are continuous and you can’t solve them or avoid them. Polarities are opposites which function best when both are present to balance with each other (Johnson, 1998). It is important to remember that a polarity is different than a problem, because a problem is something you solve and a polarity is something that you address and manage (Caldwell, 2011). Since this is the case you must

• In what kind of teams have you participated?
I have personally participated in many team efforts. My team experiences all vary, from the workplace to sports that I played throughout high school. I have also worked in teams for school work and personal projects. For me, each experience has been different and rewarding. With each team that I participated with, I learned a lesson from how to deal with different personalities to dealing with different subjects and different circumstances. I have learned that it all depends on the group of people and what type of attitudes each individual has toward the team aspect. In each group and team, I was in, there was always some type of conflict
