Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Do Individuals make better decisions quicker than teams do?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Individuals often make better decisions quicker than teams because they can act on their own instincts and knowledge without the need for consensus or compromise. When working alone, individuals can make decisions swiftly based on their expertise and experience. In contrast, teams may require more time to discuss and reach a consensus, which can slow down the decision-making process. Additionally, individual decision-makers may be more focused and decisive compared to teams, who may be influenced by group dynamics and interpersonal factors.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Teams make the best decisions when  

    • A.

      Leaders are autocratic.

    • B.

      Team members who are unaware of something keep quiet.

    • C.

      Decisions are made by consensus.

    • D.

      Team members listen carefully.

    Correct Answer
    B. Team members who are unaware of something keep quiet.
    Explanation
    When team members are unaware of something, they tend to keep quiet because they lack the necessary information or knowledge to contribute effectively to the decision-making process. This can hinder the team's ability to make the best decisions as important perspectives or insights may be missing. It is crucial for team members to feel comfortable speaking up and sharing their thoughts and ideas, even if they are not fully aware of all the details. Open communication and active participation from all team members are key factors in making the best decisions.

    Group members have to be dependent on one another, while in the case of team members, it is not required.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that group members have to be dependent on one another, while in the case of team members, it is not required. However, this is not true. Both group members and team members need to depend on each other to some extent in order to achieve their common goals. Collaboration and interdependence are essential in both groups and teams to ensure effective communication, coordination, and synergy among the members. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Normal conflict is indeed a way of an effective team. Conflict can arise when team members have different perspectives, ideas, or opinions. When managed properly, conflict can lead to better decision-making, increased creativity, and improved team dynamics. It encourages open communication, diverse thinking, and the exploration of different options. By addressing conflicts in a constructive manner, teams can find innovative solutions and build stronger relationships among team members.

    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 and consider different perspectives, ideas, and concerns. By actively listening, individuals can show respect and empathy towards others, fostering a positive and inclusive environment where everyone's voice is heard. Additionally, listening helps to build trust and rapport among team members, leading to better collaboration and decision-making. Without effective listening, consensus building becomes difficult as it hinders effective communication and understanding between individuals. Therefore, it is true that listening is a critical behavior in consensus building.

  • 6. 

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

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    For a group to become a team, it is crucial that they hold themselves accountable as a team. This means that each member takes responsibility for their actions and the overall success of the team. Without accountability, there is a lack of commitment and trust, hindering the team's ability to work together effectively. Therefore, the statement "No group ever becomes a team unless it can hold itself accountable as a team" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    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 considered a Team Maintenance Role because it does not focus on fostering teamwork or maintaining the group dynamics. Instead, it is more related to the task-oriented aspect of a team, where individuals provide necessary information to support the completion of tasks or decision-making processes. Team Maintenance Roles, on the other hand, involve activities that contribute to the overall cohesion, well-being, and positive atmosphere within the team, such as encouraging, compromising, and harmonizing.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Effective team behavior is usually, or we can say, always better than challenging new ideas.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Effective team behavior is not always better than challenging new ideas. While effective team behavior is important for collaboration and cooperation within a team, challenging new ideas can lead to innovation and growth. By questioning and challenging ideas, teams can identify potential flaws or weaknesses and come up with better solutions. Encouraging diverse perspectives and fostering a culture of constructive criticism can lead to improved decision-making and problem-solving. Therefore, it is not accurate to say that effective team behavior is always better than challenging new ideas.

  • 9. 

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

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that teams operate most effectively when leadership is formally established and recognized. However, this is not necessarily true. While formal leadership can provide structure and guidance, it is not the only factor that determines team effectiveness. In some cases, teams can operate effectively without formal leadership, relying on shared decision-making and collaboration. Therefore, the given statement is false.
