Key to individual members of a team input in the production process is their behaviour which shapes their work pattern and productivity outcomes.Therefore, motivation, satisfaction, and performance of a team or a group largely are shaped by the behaviour of the team or group members.
Team’s motivation, satisfaction, and performance greatly affect the level of productivity of a given organization by either impacting positively or negatively on the overall production output through individual inputs in the production process.
Thus individual workers level of motivation, satisfaction and performance is paramount to teams output.
Team members form attitudes about many objects in relation to their work, a thing that greatly influences their individual performances.
In teamwork, individual attitudes that are vital are those that touch on hope, job satisfaction, and organizational commitment (Hellriegel & Slocum, 2009, P.51).
For example, in team meeting if a member has a dislike for coffee and the team is served with coffee that person will mostly likely turn down the offer.
Though the relationship between attitude and behaviour is very visible, it is extremely complex to determine the effect of an attitude on the behaviour outcome.
Studies have shown that personality is not completely a rigid aspect thus it may be altered as a result of experience or circumstances (Fryer et al, 2004, P. Through this dynamism, the individual behaviour can be influenced by the workings of a team.
In assembling, a team what matter is choosing a certain type personality traits that are mostly defined by the type of the task.
Emotions thus influence the human behavior at work.
It is this understanding that has led to emergency of the Emotional Intelligence concept.
