In a 2-3 page paper, Describe the strategy (assigned in Week 7) you implemented in your Group Project.
Assigned in Week 7, the strategy I implemented in my Group Project is:
The major strategy is to coach the team members on behavioral improvement, communication, and thinking abilities to generate better ideas and deliver the group work effectively. Therefore, the strategy should be one of the foremost issues in the planning stage to have all group members understand what is expected of them and how to deliver success for the group. Mutual respect, effective communication, setting goals, and planning whenever there is a task to be completed make it possible for the group to perform better by invoking the creativity of every member in the discourse (Drumm, 2006). The training and group coaching must be prefaced with a Training Needs Analysis to address the needs of every individual member in the group.
In terms of getting the Group Wiki Project off the ground, my experience has been excellent thus far. My group mates and I work together as a team to complete our tasks. One of the group members is now in Japan, which means she is in a different time zone than the other members of the group. However, as a group, we are able to meet once a week at a time that is convenient for everyone’s schedule. Each week, we meet on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Eastern Standard Time Zone. My group is extremely easy to get along with and work with. It is important that everyone in the group contributes to making the group collaboration even more pleasant. Everyone in the group works together as a team and puts up their best effort possible. In addition, the lecturer assigned the groups and participants within the groups to their respective classes. There have been no disagreements or misunderstandings among the members of the group. In general, my group has performed admirably and really well.
Describe the process and the level of difficulty/comfort you found in doing this Assignment.
Explain how this strategy may or may not have empowered or supported the group. Describe the progress of the group in completing the project/goal.

We meet weekly on Thursdays at 6:30 PM Eastern Standard Time Zone. My group makes me very comfortable to work with.
