People play different roles in groups. And people play multiple roles in groups. Task roles, maintenance roles, and hindering roles are all important roles for facilitators to be aware of and recognize. There are three broad categories of group roles:
Task roles refer to the actions of individuals that help move the project, decision, and task along.
Maintenance roles refer to the actions of individuals that help preserve the relationships in a group.
Hindering roles refer to actions of individuals that hinder the group’s process and progress.
Think about your present group, what roles are present? Are these roles consistent with the classification and terminology in Chapter 5 of your textbook? Why, or why not? Looking at different group roles, what do you think are the most helpful? Why? And, when? Are there times when these roles, or others, are not helpful? Why? Create a list of at least two groups belong to? What group roles are present? Are they effective?
