At the time of simulation,each person was assigned 1 out of 5 different roles. And I was the physician. The overall averagescore of the team was 48 and my score as an individual was 70. Overall we obtained a mediocrescore, and this happened because we have less experience in communication and situationaldecision making. And there was a main problem of coordination among the team members.(Section 2)LEADERSHIP ISSUE: LACK OF COORDINATION AND SHARINGOF INFORMATION1.DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEMAt the time of simulation, I (physician) and the environmentalist pressed the resting button as wewere not clear with the instructions and as a result, we both were left at the base camp.Afterwards, the environmentalist fell ill when they were about to climb from camp 1 to camp 2,and this resulted in a decision whether we should dispense the medical supplies and physician toher aid and then finally she was left at the camp 1, and I (physician) climbed to camp 1 in orderto give her medical supplies. Since there is the scarcity of resources, this resulted in reducing ourchances of ensuring that we meet our goals of having at least individuals reach the peak. Thisdecision split the group in half, with one side people were saying we need to stick together inorder to survive. But on the other side people were working to achieve their personal goalsinstead of achieving a group goal. This gave rise to debate, which prompted me to give myopinion on the issue that team members are not working as a team and they want to achieve their2MGST1301 Introduction to ManagementWritten Analysis of Everest Simulation

And there is no coordinationbetween us and the team leader is not ready to take his responsibility as a leader.2.MANAGEMENT RESEARCH EVIDENCEThe topic is about leadership issue i.e. lack of coordination and information sharing. In thisarticle the path goal theory of leader effectiveness has been described. The leader’s behavior isimportant as it enhances subordinate empowerment and satisfaction and the team workseffectively. It has been stated that team members have specific and different roles which theyhave to perform in order to achieve collective success. If the team fails then this is not onlybecause of the incompetency of the team members but also the lack of coordination andsynchronization results in combined failure. Most of the teams have an individual who isresponsible for defining the team goals and aligning the tasks, and if he doesn't take hisresponsibility then there will be a lack of coordination and the task will become more chaotic.Therefore, it has been discovered that people depend on each other when they work in a team.The effective teams are those who have a high level of combined performance, and they focusmore on achieving team objective than the personal goal. The result of the research showed thatthe researchers paid more stress on teamwork in order to attain good leadership qualities. Thisarticle has proved that this leadership issue has impacted our performance.(HOUSE, 2016)The second article discusses the leadership issue that how these issues impact the overallperformance of the team. It is being discussed that the role of leadership is essential for the teamin order to bring efficiency and effectiveness. It is being stated in the article that the leaders of ateam have to follow functional leadership strategy in order to find the problems which are3MGST1301 Introduction to ManagementWritten Analysis of Everest Simulation
