Psychological Contract (Team 3)
Tools employed to communicate
Will be used when the team meets for verbal discussion (decided based off of weekly group availability).
Will be used to create group video recordings for the project.
The Google Hangouts Video Chat-bar will be used for additional communication while the team sets up video meetings.
Will be used to create group Google documents sharing and editing with group members.
Will be used to share the useful information: project process, contact information, meeting notes, pictures, reference papers and so on.
Will be used to communicate throughout the week, on a daily basis, as this medium of communication offers notifications for group members (and is easily accessible).
Will also be used as a way to remind group members when a meeting time has changed or when a meeting is happening with a notification.
Used when large files, such as videos, need to be shared.
Will be used to send invitations to group Google documents for the team (such as this one).
Used as a second-to-last source of communication when team members aren’t responding to Facebook Messenger alerts.
Group Discussion Board
Used as a last resort for communication if other online forms of communication are experiencing difficulties (Learned that response times are slow and the communication medium is often forgotten as there aren’t any notifications and isn’t as easily accessible as other programs).
Expectations about responding to messages
Team members expected to respond as soon as possible. This is the main medium of communication throughout the week.
Team members are expected to communicate their availabilities (including changes in them) over the Group video chat.
Team members expected to participate in video calls when able.
Team members are expected to respond to received mail if a response is warranted (such as a question, need for clarification, etc.. NOT for document sharing messages).
Failure to respond to messages
- Failure to respond to messages results in lowered team morale and potentially loss of a task the group-member was responsible for.
Divisions of responsibility

How the team will actively support each team member's Laser Vision?
Christina - Viewing all the videos and empowering each in their desires. Giving them lead in this area of the project. Keeping the communication open and the details organized on the project. I will uplift the people with my work and my words. We will give each other trust and respect by allowing everyone to be a decision maker in creating this mission to Mexico.
Sarah - By listening to everyone’s interests in the project, what they are wanting to work on the most. Using people’s interests and talents to further the project as well as their vision.
Katherine - By paying attention to everyone’s interests and strengths and using those to help everyone succeed with the highest level of satisfaction and content possible. This will increase self-esteem and motivate each person to drive for their visions through the project as a learning step.
Christiyana - Not only watch but ask and engage with team mates ask questions to see how else our laser visions relate and create a common knowledge between us and what we are trying to create as a team
Bryant - By listening, attempting to integrate the groups visions together andhaving a positive attitude.
Xingfang - By watching all the videos of everyone’s laser vision and understanding what everyone wants to do. Through communication and team-work knowing their interest and merits. According to each member's situation, helping and encouraging them clearly know their ways to go, giving bright suggestions, building their capabilities and developing their skills.
Concerns/notes for clarification
Where project pieces will be worked on as a group, as well as one primary communication source throughout the week besides Google Hangouts (although will be used for meetings). Too many group chats can become confusing. Having everything organized into solidified communication groups for easy access to each other and all being on the same page.
The project is a collaborative work involving all members of the group and everyone does their part. Communication and listening is the key to our success and it must be done with respect for each team member.
Photos for the portfolio of ourselves for editing and using in graphics on site.
We need patience with others who are not as savvy with the group project. Give everyone a lot of communication with our emails, phone numbers, email, social media tools and class communication boards.
Team Meeting Schedule Plan:
Due to the work and family schedules of team-members constantly changing, Jubilee created a document containing weekly charts to fill out availible times to meet (that are constantly edited due to the sporatic schedules).
