Improving Individual and Team Outcomes through the Team Selection Process
This article posits potential positive individual and team outcomes by involving students in a team selection process. It is proposed that having students participate in a simulated hiring process and selecting teammates based on reviewing resumes will create teams with individuals who have higher levels of satisfaction, team commitment, self-efficacy, trust, motivation, and performance, while having fewer individuals who exhibit social loafing. These teams will also experience higher levels of team cohesion and performance. Hypotheses and a model are developed for expected relationships.
