Getting to Know You: Self-awareness Is Key for High-Performing, Adaptive Teams
Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies
KEY FINDINGS · Role identification behaviors, or information exchanges among team members regarding individuals’ roles within a team, are crucial to the development of a team’s self awareness. · If team members do not accurately exchange information about their roles, their responsibilities and duties may be unclear, important tasks may go unaddressed, and other tasks may be performed inefficiently (e.g., performed with redundant efforts). · The more that team members engage in role identification exchanges early in the team’s life cycle, the better the team’s performance.
