Running the Meeting
Our team’s goal was to offer adequate solutions to the problems affecting our clients. The second meeting was critical towards improving our clients’ trust and confidence. The team designed the best plan to make the meeting successful. I created the best agenda for my team. I also prepared a good timetable for every activity. The strategy would make the convention meaningful. I was the team’s secretary. My duty included communicating every detail to the targeted team members and clients (Burdett 2003). I also communicated with the team’s manager to achieve our targeted goals. I always interacted with every member of the team. This approach helped the team achieve its targeted goals.
Every person wants to achieve the best results from his or her team. My efforts succeeded because the meeting realized its goals. The clients and team members were grateful after the meeting. I must offer quality solutions to our customers. I used my studies to present the best ideas for international business investment. The team’s trust and confidence increased. These results explain how I succeeded as the team’s secretary. The activity also improved my leadership competencies (Smith & Blanck, 2002). I also widened my research skills.
The above discussion shows how every individual in the team focused on the clients’ expectations. I prepared the best marketing strategy towards successful business investment. I used my position to prepare a comprehensive marketing strategy for our clients. My team used both PESTEL and SWOT frameworks to analyze China’s economic environment. The practice also widened my consulting competencies. My present goal is to focus on the best practices and ideas to become a critical thinker. I will also attract individuals from different backgrounds to be part of our consultation team. The practice will help every individual develop new organizational competencies and interpersonal skills (Smith & Blanck 2002).
I presented numerous contributions to our meeting. To begin with, I cooperated with every team member to analyze the external and internal factors affecting the business. I presented new factors that can potentially affect the company’s performance. Such factors included ‘organisational culture, motivation, accounting practices, and leadership strategies’ (Burdett 2003, p. 184). I also prepared the best business plan to help the company market its services and products to the targeted customers. I also advised my teammates about the best strategies to achieve their goals. I also examined the challenges affecting our clients. I used the findings to influence my team members. This explains why the team focused on its expectations.
I remained confident throughout the period. My first goal was to identify the changing needs of our clients. I used the ideas to conduct my research confidently. I was ready to communicate and share my ideas with the clients and team members. I made honest decisions and encouraged the members to conduct their studies ethically. I also used my best interpersonal and communication skills during the process. I was interested in the event because it equipped me with new skills as a secretary. According to Smith and Blanck (2002, p. 298), ‘every employee or leader wants to be part of a successful team.’ I was ready to conduct my research and use the findings to address the challenges affecting my clients. This explains why I will be part of our next meeting.
I played a major role throughout the meeting. I carried out more researches to come up with new skills that can help our clients. I will read widely to increase my organizational skills (Vries et al. 2010). I am also planning to look for new organisational concepts from my friends and mentors. The approach will improve my confidence and interactional skills as an organizational leader.
My Team’s Impact
Teamwork is the solution to any problem affecting an organization (Smith & Blanck 2002). The members worked as a team to address every challenge encountered. It was my duty to encourage the members of our team. This explains how the team focused on the clients’ expectations. Every person shared his or her findings with other members. We also made unanimous decisions about the findings. My team identified the best Foreign Investment Strategy (FIS) for the business (Vries et al. 2010). Every person used his or her concept to guide our clients. My team advised the company to merge with one of the biggest Chinese companies. The strategy will help the company achieve its business goals. Every member of the group also widened his or her interpersonal, analytical, and communication skills (Smith & Blanck, 2002). The above facts explain how we came along as a team.
Our team encountered a few obstacles. The team lacked the best plan for its duties and activities. Some members complained that some of their duties were quite hard. However, this did not affect the team’s performance. The team did not reexamine the practicability of its findings and suggestions. The team also failed to embrace the benefits of proper leadership. This single fact explains why some of the individuals were not confident about our team’s goals (Vries et al. 2010). The members failed to offer conclusive arguments to support their recommendations.
The above challenges did not affect the accuracy or quality of the team’s findings. However, such issues can be disastrous in the future. The team will embrace new practices to make our next meeting successful. The first strategy is to ensure every member is comfortable with his or her position in the team. We will also develop a proper time-plan for the team’s activities. I will motivate every member to make the team successful. Every member should ‘tackle any challenge or obstacle affecting the team’ (Burdett 2003, p. 185). The team will reexamine the findings and present quality recommendations to the targeted clients. I am ready to improve these practices to make our team successful.
