You are part of a group assigned a project in one of your classes. If you were assigned to be the group leader, what do you imagine the group members would expect of you? They would likely expect you to plan the required tasks, set up a timeline (i.e., a schedule of dates on which tasks need to be completed), make assignments, follow up to ensure each person in the group completes his or her tasks on time, and organize the group report. What would happen if you failed to complete these tasks? A less than acceptable report is quite likely because of ineffective leadership. The quality of the —nal group report will depend on the ability of the group leader to organize, plan, and manage the individual tasks.
