group leadership
Group Leadership

Understand your members in the context of the groups they are in.

Every group is different and in a different state of readiness

As a leader your job is to:

- resolve a problem or conflict - get the group to do something you want them to do - get the group to set and achieve a goal


Every situation you find your

group in will be different.

Is the group willing or unwilling, prepared or unprepared?

your leadership role
Your Leadership Role

will vary depending on your group

If your group is ready and willing

Assure the group of your trust.

Help the group to define the problem or and to set realistic goals.

Be a resource person and provide feedback.

Delegate to more than one in the group.

Be patient.


If your group is willing

but not ready

Be a facilitator

Be supportive

Draw out ideas from group

Teach skills

Establish a trusting atmosphere

Listen actively and provide feedback

Help group devise strategies

Participate where appropriate


If your group is ready

but not willing

Communicate well

Justify ideas


Anticipate reactions

Assess needs of the members

Be assertive but fair

Act decisively and quickly


If your group is neither

ready nor willing

Work on their readiness first

Will take a lot of motivating on the leader’s part

Try to catch individual members being good


Getting Others to Follow

Mission: what is our group all about?

Vision: what do we want our group to be?

System:what must our group do to get us there?

Values: what principles will guide our group?

Motivation: how do I help our group get there?
