- In your textbook, Dr. Schwartzman explains that one advantage of a group is that they “take on more complex projects than individuals can address alone” (p. 474). In her talk, Dr. Edmundson describes a number of complex projects that can only be addressed by people working together. But, what are some of the challenges of this type of group work that she describes?
- Think about some of your own instance of what Dr. Edmundson describes as “teaming,” such as having to work in a small group with classmates you don’t know very well. Outline the three group member roles (one task role, one social role, and one self-serving role) that described you best in that instance and explain why you chose each role.
