GROUP LEADERSHIP AND CONFLICT SUMMARY 2 Group Leadership and Conflict Summary Engaging in a group environment is not an easy task. It requires cohesion, enhanced listening skills, a high flow of communication along with some patience. Patience, in a humble way of perception, is probably the most important. Anyone can exercise communication, listening but patience is a real virtue. This project required a simple analysis within the assigned group D and asked to analyze the major differences and similarities of this group along with the two other videos’ constructive and destructive behavior identified. In teamwork’s setting, every member has a different perspective that must be examined and approached cautiously and with respect. Working in a team is an experience that requires multiple skills. Within the learning group D's group interaction, the intent of the discussion was absent from three of the five members of the group and only two of us participated. Although it was clearly stated that participation was an important part of the overall grade of the project by the professor, a substantial number of members failed to participate and engage in the conversation. One of the participating members, however, imparted ideas that both contrasted and reflected her perception with regards to the “ planning a playground ” meeting video. Our teamwork completely collapsed because the majority of members did not seem to care nor participate. According to an online publication from the State of Wisconsin, members who fail to engage in team conversations may have a lack of communication skills, the absence of human relation skills, or some resentment towards the rest of the members (Wisconsin State University, 2016). The facts could explain the reason for the lack of contribution. I believe that the biggest strategy to begin making a difference in a group environment is enhanced communication. From the discussion held between participating member Janice Delgado and me, about 90% of our overall perception of the meeting notes was similar. The difference between Delgado’s and I was the fact that she believed David acted as a mediator

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
