The first thing I would do if I had employees who are not willing to be active members of a cross-departmental team is explain the importance of their participation. I would be as clear as possible in explaining why there are changes happening and what is expected out of them. From there I would open the floor for two-way communication to ensure that all of their questions and concerns are addressed and that they understand what needs to happen. I would do my best to make sure they understand that they are appreciated and valued. I would also try to deter them from social loafing which M.U.S.E. says results in subpar performance for a group.

    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.
