team, I am sure that person is but in an awkward position. One way to get to know each member, either old or new is to use a team-building exercise. According to "Improving Group Dynamics" (2016), website “These exercises ease new colleagues into the group gently, and also help to combat the "black sheep effect," which happens when group members turn against people they consider different.” (16). Those types of exercises can help the group dynamic, make everyone feel welcomed and not like an outsider. Especially when it is a new team member, no one wants to feel left out. Another great strategy to use when creating effective groups or teams is to be able to monitor the progress of each team member. It is important to know where each member stand during the project. This is something the team leader would monitor closely, as this is the time for all members to come together, but if concerns arise, they will need a platform to voice their concerns and opinions. If need be, the team leader can reassign duties if possible, to make the team more successful in the project. It is important that all team member work out any situation that may arise.
