QUESTION 1

Identify and describe which of the eight characteristics (Table 14.1, p. 376) of team excellence are lacking in this team? Based on this analysis of team effectiveness, evaluate if Jim should intervene at this time or should he just keep monitoring the team? If you think he should take action, assess at what level he should intervene (internal or external)? If internal, should his action be task or relational? Describe what specific leadership functions should Jim implement to improve the team? Why?

QUESTION 2

Kouzes and Posner (2017) state that, “Leaders need to provide coaching because no one ever got to be the best at anything without the constructive feedback, probing questions, and active teaching of respected coaches.” (p. 240). With this in mind, share an example from your life where someone took the time to coach and/or mentor you. Describe what competencies did they help you develop that helped promote your self-confidence? Additionally, share an example of a time where you coached someone and helped them develop their competencies and confidence.
