Qualities and Habits of Functional Human Service Teams
Write a 2-page paper outlining how and why you would select members for one of the committees or the team listed below. The committee or team will function within a local community action group:
- A committee dedicated to securing a financial grant for advertising a new housing program.
- A team focused on recruiting volunteers to assist at a local food shelf.
- A committee tasked with researching a new electronic system that tracks detailed data on clients’ preferences of services.
In your paper, address the following questions:
- Will you use an application process or simply appoint members?
- What criteria will be used to select committee or team members?
- Is diversity of organizational positions and skill sets required or desired? Give the rationale for requiring or desiring diversity for the committee or team members.
- Are selection criteria based on length of service, job performance, or other factors?
- Who will be responsible for setting overall goals and timelines once the committee is formed?
