Making groups effective by Alvin Frederick Zander( Book )

What can members and leaders do to help groups function more effectively? How do groups develop and maintain power to influence others? How do successful groups resolve conflicts? How do groups evaluate their effectiveness and create and implement change strategies when necessary? In this newly revised edition of his classic 1982 work, group dynamics pioneer and leading small-groups scholar Alvin Zander draws on the latest research to show how groups can function more effectively and achieve the full potential of group work. For leaders and group supervisors as well as members of teams, boards, task forces, and other groups, Zander offers a clear vision of what makes groups work

Group aspirations and group coping behavior [by] Alvin Zander [and] Herman Medow by Alvin Frederick Zander( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This research project was concerned with the effects of certain internal and external conditions upon the selection of a group's level of aspiration and the effects of these conditions on members' coping behavior. Seven experiments were designed which utilized male high school students of suburban schools as subjects. Results obtained from the various experiments indicated that the level of aspiration theory, originally developed as an explanation of goal settings by individuals, was useful in examining the nature of group aspirations. It was also indicated that additions to the aspiration theory develop when group goals are involved. Findings are stated as--(1) the origins of group aspirations and subsequent changes in them are similar to those for personal aspirations, (2) members distort their expectations of their group's future performance when influenced to do so by external agents so that they select unduly high or low group aspirations, (3) a member's evaluation of his group's performance is a function of the discrepancy between performance of the group and the level of aspiration of that group, (4) members of a group engage in coping behavior intended to avoid potential negative or positive consequences following a poor or good performance, and (5) a member develops a motive for his group to achieve success (or to avoid failure) which influences the direction and vigor of his group behavior.

The influence of teachers and peers on aspirations of youth by Alvin Frederick Zander( Book )

5 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The influential relationships between the student and his teachers and peers were investigated to determine how and why they might affect student desires and objectives. Three separate studies were conducted, involving approximately 740 junior and senior high school students. The first, a questionnaire study, examined the effectiveness of social influences of teachers upon the aspirations of students with respect to their social power as it appeals to different student motives. The second, a laboratory experiment, inquired whether self-evaluations and efforts to cope with an experience of failure differed when students were exposed to social pressures from peers based upon separate sources of social power. The third, also a laboratory experiment, considered the contrasting uses of coping behavior by a student when he was free to set his own aspirations, when he was influenced by an authority figure to achieve at a given level, and when he received social support from his peers. Findings in all three areas of study were numerous and added new insights to the role a single teacher could play in shaping a student's immediate aspirations or distant goals and in molding the personality of youth.

Effects of children's social power and intelligence on their interpersonal relations by Alvin Frederick Zander( Book )

4 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of two determinants, intelligence and degree of a person's social power, which affect social relations were examined in this study. The latter refers to the ability to influence the behavior and beliefs of others. The overall objective was to describe and explain causes for the types and characteristics used by children with different degrees of intelligence. Children in the second and fifth grades having very high, average, and low intelligence were selected for the study. Within each category, the children were then divided into classes of persons who had different degrees of influence and expertness attributed to them by peers and teachers. They were given a series of standardized group problem-solving tasks during which their interpersonal behavior was studied. Those with different degrees of intellectual ability and power were compared with respect to their interpersonal relations during the problem-solving sessions and the behavior usually accorded to them in the classroom. There is little support in this study for the assumption that highly intelligent children behave differently in social situations from those with low intelligence when the degree of their social power is held constant. Intelligence by itself is not an important determinant of social relations. (Jh)
