Organizations can hire the best individuals, but they need to be able to work together effectively in teams in order to address complex issues. I will be sharing my research that provides a dynamic perspective on the team roles essential for a group of talented people to work together effectively, especially for generating team-based creative output. The research data was collected through WhatsApp, with teams of professionals, working on a common creativity task. The content analysis of the chat logs provides insights into the importance of two task-focused roles – Organizer (convergent in nature) and Challenger (divergent in nature). I will be discussing further insights on how these roles should be shared amongst the team members over the course of the creativity task.
