Assignment 1: Discussion

In order for an organization to have high-functioning self-managed teams, its leader(s) must be committed to the strategies necessary to develop these teams. In addition to the development process, leaders must also establish strategies to motivate and sustain the effort of teams over time, to maintain their productivity and relevance. Ideally, a team is working toward continuous improvement and evolution; its work should represent this movement. As recent history has shown, tomorrow’s challenges will certainly be very different from today’s. In this assignment you will discuss how leadership can motivate and encourage a team to excel.

Based on your research and experience, in a minimum of 400 words, respond to the following points:

Tasks:

  • What steps can leaders take to motivate teams to take their performance level to consistently higher levels?
  • Why would the steps identified above help motivate teams?
  • How can the leader help the team realize its collective ability to succeed well beyond a typical team?

Support your response with examples and citations from professional literature in your research. Professional literature may include the Argosy University online library, relevant textbooks, peer-reviewed journal articles, and websites created by professional organizations, agencies, or institutions (.edu, .org, or .gov).
