member of the group is needed and no member of the group holds more weight than another. Instituting a group identity does not ensure that all members will easily agree on everything but instead the entire group is committed to the same purpose by working together. It has been found that having a group identity will only result in positive consequences on performance when dealing with varied coached teams (Murrell & Gaertner, 1992). This is clearly because no member can feel that they have a greater or smaller influence on the decisions that must be formed as a group. The group must effectively stick together and realize the importance of the entire group having an identity rather than the importance of individual ideas and perspectives. All conclusions must be formed as a whole to ensure the effectiveness of the entire group. Reference: Griffith, B. A., & Dunham, E. B. (2015).

    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.
