This paper examines how, increasingly, organizations in today's world are moving towards flatter, less hierarchical structures, a trend that has led to greater focus on effective teamwork. In particular, it explores the pros and cons of using an interactive style of behavior in teamwork and examines the implications for managing stress, motivation, teamwork, leadership roles, and conflict situations. It also attempts to arrive at a set of recommendations for areas of improvement, with the objective of increasing effectiveness in teamwork situations.

From the Paper:

"Since The Interactive Style or The Interacting Socializer type of behavior is primarily motivated by "influencing people", (Alessandra, 2002, p. 2) individuals who predominantly use this style tend to be "outgoing, optimistic, enthusiastic people who like to be in the center of things." (O'Connor, 1996-2001) On the positive side, this type of behavior is characterized by an enjoyment of symbols of authority and prestige; high comfort levels both in delegating and taking charge; a positive, enthusiastic outlook; a persuasive and inspirational communication style; a trusting nature; and an ability to withstand criticism. The downside, however, of excessive use of The Interactive Style is that some of the strengths also tend to manifest themselves as weaknesses."
