It is useful to learn team dynamics as an observer in other situations because there is no bias on your part; you can be neutral in the
situational analysis. As part of leadership, it is up to you to have all the information before you make a decision. It can be easier to jump
in and evaluate what that team should have done, but you need to hear and see everything possible before making a decision. A leader can learn
from others; it should be an ongoing process, as there can be new leadership tactics to learn.
For this paper, you are an observer of a team and its dynamics. Please read the “Arsenic and Old Lace: A Study in Turnaround Management”

verbal and nonverbal cues).
• Analyze the team dynamics:
o Examine common obstacles you observed and the effect those had on communication.
o Compare and contrast the nature of the team members toward each other and toward the leader.
o Assess how effective the team was at communicating.
o Distinguish the effective techniques used by the leader and those that were ineffective.
