GROUP LEADING REPORT ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
The purpose of this assignment is to provide disclosure about the group meeting you proposed
and led and demonstrate learning from the experience. You will describe the meeting, assess
your pre-planning, analyze the group dynamics, and evaluate your leadership performance by
producing a 6–7-minute post-meeting video report. No paper is expected.
References to the course literature are optional; however, you must demonstrate familiarity with
the terminology and best practices therein and provide evidence of self-reflection, critical
thinking, and understanding of key concepts. Each main point must be sufficiently developed
given the time limit. The main points must be logically connected with effective transitions and a
progression of ideas throughout. Your presentation must include the following main points:
Introduce yourself and disclose key facts about your meeting, including date, time,
duration, location, setting and set-up, number of participants, and whether a co-leader
was present. Briefly (in one or two sentences) reiterate the nature and purpose of the
group and your prior role and involvement. If the actual meeting and its participants
diverted from your proposal, explain why. (I changed the time to 4 hours and it began at 8 a.m.)
2. Group Dynamics, Content, and Process
Describe the progression of the meeting from beginning to end paying attention to
content, process, and group dynamics. What was the group’s level of engagement and
participation, and what different leadership techniques did you utilize?
Reflect on your facilitation and evaluate your performance, providing specific examples
from the meeting. What were the main challenges you encountered? What do you feel
you did well and what do you think you should have handled differently?
4. Conclusion and Application
Briefly summarize the highlights of your experience and your most important takeaways.
How will you apply what you learned to future group leadership? In what areas do you
need to enhance your group skills? End with a concluding thought.
The 6–7-minute video must be of sufficient quality for a professional setting and show you
speaking. Your delivery must demonstrate attention to audience engagement, articulation,
appropriate language, tone, absence of vocal fillers, eye contact, posture and movement.
