4.1 Discussion: Working in Groups and Group Leadership


Many people cringe at the thought of group projects and presentations. It is often disconcerting to have to rely on others in the quest for a decent grade, work evaluation, or general positive outcome. Additionally, many of us struggle in group situations, as do those who have to delegate tasks when they would prefer to have a certain level of control. 

Understanding how groups interact and learning how to improve group communication skills can mean the difference between a successful group experience and an unsuccessful, unproductive, completely unpleasant experience (from Introduction to Human Communication, Beauchamp).
