Groups typically contain between three and nine people but may be larger if members perceive the group as an entity. o The substance that creates and holds the group together is the interaction between members. o Group members are interdependent – they cannot achieve their goals without the help of other group members.

Your family is an example of a relationship-oriented group) N Assigned group – Evolve out of a hierarchy where individuals are appointed as members of the group. (Ex. Being asked to serve on a student union advisory board is an example of an assigned group.)

A group of friends who meet at college is an example of an emergent group.) Types of leaders, p. 217 h Designated leader – Someone who has been appointed or elected to a leadership position. (Ex.
