Group Strategies

In  250 words reply extend the discussion below by analyzing and building ideas using two references.  The response must demonstrate course-related knowledge and assertions must be supported by references in the current APA format. Use of first-person and single-spaced formatting is appropriate.  Also, the inclusion of headings/subheadings is not needed  The response must be  well written, well organized, and focused As I worked through the readings of Jacobs et al., I noticed two items in the leading of a group that stood out to me for opposite reasons.  The one item was an area that I felt strong in, and the other was one that I could see being a challenge for myself as a group leader.  Collective cohesion can depend greatly on the abilities of the leader to set the example for the group, and when a group reaches collective cohesion they are truly working together for a common goal (Forsyth, 2019).  My abilities as a leader and my deficiencies will greatly impact the group’s ability to reach collective cohesion.Drawing out was the hardest item discussed by Jacobs et al. I found that I would struggle with since I find myself impatient when a person is reluctant or withdrawn.  The goal of drawing out is to bring members into the group by being involved along with keeping the group on task as it relates to relevant sharing (Jacobs et al., 2016).  My impatience may cause me to miss the opportunity to draw out important emotions, feelings, or thoughts of a group member.  Failing to be good at drawing out members could result in negative impacts against collective cohesion, and it is vital that as a leader I constantly assess my handling of this area.  My strong personality will surely be at its greatest test when it comes to drawing a member out delicately.  Jacobs et al. (2016) describe delicate drawing out as a subtle but important art of a leader who can use soft body language, permissive speech, and gentleness in achieving the opening up of a member to the group (p. 196). The second item and one that I feel more confident in is cutting off.  Simply put, as a police officer, there are often times on the scene of a call where someone begins to speak off-topic or share about things that are not relevant to the case I am investigating.  Jacobs et al. (2016) explain that cutting off a member is an important skill for a group leader in order to maintain the focus of members and to prevent the group from losing purpose (p. 176).  It is equally important however to cut off a member in love and be sure to not be brash.  There is definitely a difference to be noticed between cutting off as a police officer and cutting off as a group leader, however, I do feel comfortable guiding discussion and I think this will be an easier skill to master for myself.
