The Effect of Shared versus Individual Reflection on Team Outcomes
Domke-Damonte, Darla J.; Keels, J. Kay
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v78 n1 p5-32 Mar 2015
In this study, teams in a strategic management classroom were given one of two versions of an assignment related to the development of a team contract: independent individual reflections on desired team behaviors versus team-level reflections on desired behavioral norms. Results of a multivariate analysis of covariance, controlling for gender and individual prior achievement, indicated that teams who engaged in team-level reflection on desired team behavioral norms did not report higher teamwork satisfaction than those who had engaged in individual-level reflection on desired norms, but did report higher team effectiveness, effectiveness of their team member evaluation tool, and higher project scores.
