Personal Reflection During the group three task group assignment I was able to exercise my leadership skills as well as my teamwork abilities.

When completing the Enneagram Personality inventory, I found my dominant personalities were the perfectionist and the peacemaker. Each of these personalities aided in my decisions when working with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson and the rest of the collaboration team. My first trait, the perfectionist, helped me to be very productive and orderly when putting together an agenda for the collaboration meeting. In order for the meeting to go smoothly, it was very important for me to have a detailed agenda in which I knew I could cover all the information that the Wilson’s needed to hear and also give everyone a chance to voice their comments and concerns during the meeting as well. My second trait, the peacemaker, helped me tremendously during this collaboration

It was an eye-opening moment for this writer as well. The leader did plan the need of the members based on the purpose of the group, the personalities, the needs of the members, and the levels of trust. Most of the members trusted the group to fill comfortable enough share the thoughts, except for the new members. The leader did a great job in implementing their plan (Jacobs, Schimmel, Masson, Harvill, 2016). Another interesting exercise that leader had the group do was called the Johari Window.
