In the classroom, like any work environment, there are many different types of personalities, work ethics, work schedules, and leadership abilities. I have had the pleasure of working with fellow students who were enthusiastic and willing to work towards the understood goals of the team. These individuals took pride in their team’s work and followed through on their commitments. As in the workplace, this type of student also readily accepted feedback on their performance while encouraging others to achieve at their highest lever.
Just as in the workplace, not all students have these ideal traits. Sometimes, the hardest part of teamwork becomes finding a means to either work with a difficult student or to work around them to complete the assigned task without a negative effect on grades.
