Your Reflections
1. What did you learn from the process of creating your plan? We learned that it is a difficult task to create a perfect time management process for actions that needed to be taken for this project but we all gained the experience needed to expand our knowledge relating to these type of assignments. 2. Looking back, what parts of your plan did not work and had to be revised? a. How effective were the revisions? What improved after you revised the plan? Meeting at certain places and times did not quite work for our group therefore that it when we decided to split up the different phases of the Clean & Jerk and have the material presented by a certain date. 3. At the start of the semester you observed a role play using the principles of Crucial Conversations to deal with interpersonal problems. a. Did anything happen during the semester that motivated you to have a crucial conversation? Our team was very understanding for each team members situations and conflicts therefore crucial conversations werent much needed but if there was a matter that needed to be taken care of it was always presented in a respectful manner. b. How did you implement the crucial conversation strategies? We implemented crucial conversation strategies by being open with one another and speaking up when ones schedule conflicted with meeting. When we faced an issue we always approached a team member respectfully and never ostracized an individual. c. How did the outcomes of the conversations help the team perform better? These outcomes of conversation helped the team member gain the realization that they need to focus on a certain task that they have been lacking on keeping up to date with.

d. Do you expect to use these strategies in the future? If so, how? Yes. These strategies were very positive and showed a beneficial outcome therefore using these strategies again would certainly be a good idea. 4. What problem solving strategies did the team use? We used positive problem solving strategies to get the team member back on task. a. Did you change your strategies as the semester progressed? If so, how did you change strategies? Were you more effective after the change? No our problem strategies did not change, we maintain the same strategies and positive attitude throughout the semester. 5. In retrospect, what did your team do really well and what would you change to improve your performance? Our team overall did a good job and worked well together to create and present the best project that our group was capable of. To improve our performance we could have perhaps finished certain tasks at an earlier date. 6. What is the single most important message about the Team Project you want to share with the students who will take this class next semester? The single most message we would like to share for a class next semester is to not take for granted the time frame you have to accomplish this project. It may seem like a long time but in reality the material needed to be provided in this project equalizes that time frame.
