Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Individuals make good decisions much quicker than teams do.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that individuals are able to make good decisions more quickly compared to teams. This implies that when making decisions individually, there is less time spent on consensus-building and deliberation, which can often slow down the decision-making process in teams. Individual decision-making allows for faster action and implementation, which can be advantageous in certain situations where time is of the essence. However, it is important to note that the effectiveness of decision-making also depends on the complexity of the problem and the diversity of perspectives, which teams can provide.

      Decisions are made by consensus

    • D.

      Team members listen carefully

    Correct Answer
    B. Team members who don’t know anything keep quiet
    Explanation
    Team members who don't know anything keeping quiet can contribute to making the best decisions because it allows the more knowledgeable team members to take the lead and share their expertise without interference or distraction. This ensures that the decision-making process is not influenced by uninformed opinions or incorrect information. By allowing the more knowledgeable members to speak up and share their insights, the team can benefit from their expertise and make more informed and effective decisions.

    Group members are dependent on one another, while team members are independent of one another.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false. In a group, members may work together and rely on each other to achieve a common goal. However, in a team, members also depend on each other and collaborate to achieve a shared objective. Both groups and teams require interdependence and cooperation among members for successful outcomes. Therefore, the given statement is incorrect.

    Healthy conflict is a key building block of an effective team.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Healthy conflict refers to the constructive and productive disagreements within a team. It allows team members to express their diverse opinions, challenge ideas, and find the best solutions through open and respectful communication. This type of conflict fosters creativity, innovation, and critical thinking. When team members engage in healthy conflict, they are more likely to collaborate effectively, make better decisions, and achieve higher levels of success. Therefore, healthy conflict is indeed a key building block of an effective team.

    B. Storming
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Storming." In the second stage of team formation and development, known as storming, team members may experience conflicts and disagreements as they establish their roles and responsibilities within the group. This stage is characterized by a period of adjustment and power struggles as individuals assert their opinions and ideas. It is important for the team to effectively manage these conflicts and find ways to work together in order to progress to the next stage of team development.

    Listening is a critical behavior in consensus building

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Listening is a critical behavior in consensus building because it allows individuals to understand different perspectives, gather information, and build trust among team members. By actively listening to others, individuals can identify common ground, address concerns, and find mutually beneficial solutions. Without listening, consensus building becomes difficult as there is a lack of understanding and communication, leading to misunderstandings and conflicts. Therefore, it is important for individuals to actively listen and consider the opinions and ideas of others in order to reach a consensus effectively.

  • 7. 

    No group ever becomes a team unless it can hold itself accountable as a team.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Accountability is a crucial aspect of teamwork. It ensures that every member of the group takes responsibility for their actions and contributes to the team's goals. Without accountability, individuals may not feel obligated to fulfill their duties, which can lead to a lack of cohesion and productivity within the group. Therefore, for a group to transform into a team, it is essential for them to hold themselves accountable collectively.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Which of the following is not a Team Maintenance Role?

    • A.

      Encouraging

    • B.

      Compromising

    • C.

      Harmonizing

    • D.

      Information Giving

    Correct Answer
    D. Information Giving
    Explanation
    The role of Information Giving is not a Team Maintenance Role because it does not focus on building and maintaining relationships within the team. Instead, it involves providing information or sharing knowledge with others, which is more related to the task or goal of the team rather than the interpersonal dynamics. Team Maintenance Roles typically involve activities that promote collaboration, resolve conflicts, and foster a positive team environment.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Effective team behavior is always more encouraging than challenging of new ideas.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Effective team behavior is always more encouraging than challenging of new ideas. This statement is false because while effective team behavior does involve encouraging new ideas, it also includes challenging them. Challenging ideas allows for critical thinking, constructive feedback, and the potential for improvement. Without challenging ideas, a team may become stagnant and fail to innovate or address potential flaws in their plans. Therefore, both encouragement and constructive challenge are important aspects of effective team behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Teams operate most effectively when leadership is formally established and recognized.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    This statement is false because teams can also operate effectively without formal leadership. In some cases, teams can be self-managed, where members collectively make decisions and take responsibility for their actions. This can foster a sense of ownership and empowerment among team members, leading to increased motivation and productivity. Additionally, informal leaders can emerge within teams, where individuals naturally take on leadership roles based on their expertise or influence. Therefore, while formal leadership can be beneficial, it is not always necessary for teams to operate effectively.
