All of our team members started this class with different expectations regarding the outcome our group would have and the helpful information we would learn for future teams. These outcomes included the learning of tools for analyzing team performance and using them to increase the efficiency and communication of teams. Other expectations included the examination of conditions for the creation of a positive team climate and the gain of personal experience through acting in a team that is focused on reaching a high level of team performance. We applied the concepts we learned in class in our multicultural team and observed ourselves to learn and gain a better understanding of how a team should function. The purpose of this report is to investigate our actions in the team building class, and give a postmortem analysis of our teams performance and characteristics.

We will provide information about our team members, their different cultures and how this affected our ability to work together. We also will analyze our individual roles in the team atmosphere and how our different personalities affected the team. Finally, we will look at our meeting skills, evaluate them, and provide information concerning our positive and negative team meeting skills.
