Shaper: Outgoing, dynamic and gets the results, but can be arrogant and abrasive.

Some of the factors that contribute to change and conflict within teams and organisations can be when new legislation/policy comes into place or when new members/staff join the team/organisation. The other members of the team need to promote partnership and work together to ensure that the team members and more importantly the service users are receiving the best quality of service. They can do this through promoting effective partnerships for example:
