The cited college can avail the benefits on developing the enthusiasm level as well. The team mates can show their support within the work, and they can learn the concepts in a good manner. Another benefit is that students put their efforts and learn the new things to improve their performance (Matiza, 2013). Thus, this element enables the college to improve their knowledge level.

Managing the conflicts and difficulties
As such there were no such difficulties and conflicts faced during the process or handling the project. Every aspect and roles and responsibilities were clear to all the team mates. The only problem was required to handle was related to the stress and tensions (Morgenstern, 2004). There was lots of confusion regarding finishing the work and adjoining the tasks. It was the major problem that has been experienced during the project. It is to acknowledge that to deal with this particular factor scheduling has been made so that the activities could be managed properly. Being a leader proper plan has been made by me so that the alignment between various activities could be made in an appropriate manner. The communication was proper to my team mates regarding their roles and responsibilities. The nervousness was clear within the team as it was a huge responsibility to be fulfilled for the college. It includes our reputation in front of the college, organizations as well as on the peers. Thus, this three-way pressure and reputation building scenario create some difficulties in managing the confidence. But being a leader I acted as a motivator as well. It helps me in managing the motivation level of team mates, and we get success in accomplishing our project objectives (Mumby. 2012). Thus, in this way, the leadership role has been fulfilled and has been inherited by me.
Effectiveness of team in achieving the targets
The team work is dynamic which involves the variety of people with the different skills set and potential level. It is one of the major factors that help in ensuring the effectiveness of team for the accomplishment of goals and objectives. The team builds a strong reputation among the college, and they get proper information from all the parties. The major of the project was to disseminate the right kind of information about the selection process. The students, college, and companies were connected with the team only to get reliable and relevant information. Thus, we understand our responsibility and establish well communication with the parties. The students get the right information about the selection process. Thus it helps in accomplishing the goals of the project. Ahead another goal was to arrange all the activities in an appropriate way. So to deal with this aspect proper plan and scheduling has been done so that the kiosk could be avoided (More, 2000). The team was effective to get the task done and to deal with identified challenges. The students were not in trouble as they get all the information on time which was another very crucial goal for the project. At the same juncture, it is also essential to understand that the effectiveness of team allows the college to maintain their reputation that their students are highly capable of handling their responsibilities, and their discipline level is so high.
My role within team
My role was crucial within the team as I acted as a leader for my team. What I have done is that I gave priority to manage my team and assign the roles and responsibilities in an appropriate manner. It was the major responsibility for me to ensure that the team mates should get proper instructions and chaos should be avoided. I acted as a linkage between college, students, and company. I look upon all the set of activities so that the improvement could be introduced immediately if required. I gave the opportunity to each and every person and divide the responsibilities equally. The most important thing which I feel I have done better for me is that I practice the leadership fundamental in an appropriate manner (Carlisle and Loveday, 2007). I establish the communication and give freedom to my team mates to give suggestions to me. There was proper appreciation session where we try to bring all the people on one platform. Further, during the selection process, the scenario was very clear that every person should get the right information at right time, and this responsibility was fulfilled by me. Thus, I have done better in disseminating the useful piece of information at various instances of the selection process. Round after round we keep our self-updated so that the chaos could be avoided. Thus, these were certain aspects which we have done better.
Discussions of internal and external factors
The major internal as well external factors that may affect the performance are the very significant to be understood. The major internal factor could be the grudge level among the peers. It could have diverted their concentration level, and they could have focused upon unnecessary affairs (Dexter and Prince, 2007). Thus, this factor can affect their performance level. Further, the external factor is related to their personal matters. It might be possible that they are indulging into other activities, and their mind is struck by those aspects or external processes then also the decrement in their concentration level could be noticed. These internal, as well as external factors, are required to be handled in an appropriate manner. The major internal factor is that the personally the team mates might have certain kind of discriminatory thought process towards each another. So it can create differences, and they can end up by losing their energy on unnecessary aspects. Thus, these factors could be affecting the performance of peers.
Success of assessment process
The assessment process that has been conducted is helpful in two ways. First is that the qualities and weak aspects of the team mates could be identified properly. Through assessment, the leader can come to know that what kind of responsibilities could be assigned to what kind of person. It helps in taking the right decision and most importantly the delegation of authorities could be done in an appropriate way. Here at the same juncture, the benefit of assessment process includes the arrangement of such aspects that can help in eradicating the weak aspects of peers (Gennard and Judge, 2005). Through assessment, one could become clear with possible results of the training as well. The confidence level could be increased, and the desirable results or outcomes could be obtained by channelizing the energy of peers in the right direction (Klein, 2007). The leaders can get guidance from the assessment process. Overall it is clear that assessment is beneficial for both leader and peers as the leader can develop his leadership style on the basis assessment process results. Thus, these are certain possible success factors for the assessment process.
