Week 4 Discussion 2
Team Temperaments Please respond to the following:
- According to the Kloppenborg et al course text, there are certain patterns that fit the different temperaments. For example: Guardians are defenders and organizers; Idealists are motivated to be helpers; Artisans love mastering techniques; and Rationales are drawn to innovating. Analyze your abilities in light of the four temperaments, and construct an argument in which you as a project leader would handle having four team members with four different, distinct temperaments on your team. Support your response with two examples.
- Analyze your current work (or past work) environment through the lens of the project manager of a team that is struggling and failing. Recommend three strategies that you, as a leader, would implement to determine the reasons for the struggles or outright failure of your project team. Provide specific examples to support your response.
