Devry SPCH277 Week 4 Discussion 1 & 2 Latest 2015 October

| January 30, 2017

Discussion 1

We’ve all worked in groups that had one or more members that caused problems and made it difficult for all group members. Here is a short list of these problem group members:
The know-it-all: This person has a lot of information but only wants to tell the rest of the group what to do. He or she does not listen to what the other group members have to say. They are convinced that their way is the only way to do things.
The slacker: This person shows up part of the time, but never quite manages to get their work done. You can’t depend on assignments being completed.
The quiet one: This group member seems to have good ideas but he or she does not like to volunteer and often sits silently through discussions and brainstorming sessions.
The do-it-all: This person takes charge of the project and would prefer to do it alone without feedback or contributions from the rest of the group.
The disappearing teammate: This person attends the first group meeting but is not seen or heard from afterwards. E-mails go unanswered.
Share an experience where you encountered a group member that fit one of the descriptions above. How did your group or team deal with them? Did the problem team member create problems for you?
