Use the headings and guiding questions below:


  • Explain the purpose of the team: What were the goals or objectives the team was seeking to accomplish?
  • Describe the team structure: How many members were on the team? What were the roles and responsibilities of each member within the team?
  • Describe the team dynamics: Was there a team leader? What factors had an impact on team performance or attitudes?

  • What were the outcomes of the resolution?
  • Did the team agree with the outcome(s)? If so, why were they in agreement? If not, why were they in disagreement?
