As part of our study of Group Dynamics, we explore meetings—what are they, why do we have them, what defines an effective meeting, etc.? Our society is completely centered around meetings (Doyle & Straus, 1976). From the boardroom to the break room; from the football huddle to the ‘huddle room;’ from a meeting of the minds to a ‘come to Jesus meeting,’ we love to meet.
Attend, observe, and assess a meeting. Find a recorded meeting online or attend a meeting in person, where group dynamics can be observed. As you watch the meeting, observe behaviors of the members. Then, complete the Meeting Assessment Form [DOWNLOAD]. After you have completed the assessment form, compose a written response to address the following prompts: (You do not have to submit the assessment form.)
Include the topic of the meeting, the date, and the group purpose or title.

Want kind of information did you receive in advance of the meeting?
What leader behaviors did you observe that were positive?
What leader behaviors did you observe that were negative?
Briefly describe your observations of the five stages of group dynamics (forming, storming, norming, performing, adjourning).
