Transcripts - Poor group dynamics can undermine the success of any project

  • 1. Poor group dynamics can undermine the success of any project, as well as people's morale and engagement. From observation, one person is critical of one colleagues' ideas and that person’s ‘fault-finding’ is discouraging others from speaking up. Another, persons who have hardly contributed at all, when asked for their opinion, simply agree with the more dominant colleague. Finally, one group member comments maybe unhelpful that upsets the momentum of the discussion. In an effort to resolve this matter, the adoption of the process called, “majority rules” to resolve position discrepancies. “However, for this to work there must always be a balance, so that a person who is in full support is not moved to a non-supporting position unless the decision is unanimous on the part of all other stakeholders.” However, if the outcome of a secret ballot vote may turn out any surprises, then it is not a good time to make “majority rule” decisions. So if “the stakeholder states that he or she is against the issue or policy, one can assume that this is accurate, albeit subjective, information because there is little incentive for the stakeholder to misrepresent his or her position. In the case of the self-reported neutral or supportive stakeholder, it is important to cross-reference the opinions of others because the stakeholder may have an incentive to misrepresent his or her position.”
