Group dynamics can be one of the most difficult areas to navigate when dealing with behavioral issues in an organization. Evaluate some contemporary group dynamic issues and discuss how you would implement management solutions. Some possible questions to think about while evaluating these:
- What is the cause and effect?
- What crucial conversations would have to take place?
- What biblical meanings are applicable?
You are not limited to these questions, they are simply to assist you in the evaluation process.
