Abstract:

A general purpose of Task-Directed Learning TDL is to provide opportunities for participants in decision-making groups to learn something about the nature of complex interpersonal processes. A closely related objective is that the participants acquire a higher level of competence in the management of interpersonal relations. A key assumption in the TDL program is that the effectiveness of the group will increase as the individuals gain knowledge about group process and grow in interpersonal competence. For long-term working arrangements, there seem to be two separate and necessary components of group effectiveness 1 technical competence in achieving the solution to the problem confronting the group at the outset, and 2 social reinforcement for members who participate in group decision-making.
