Think of a group or team you belong to now or at some point during your life. What was that group or team, and what made that group/team effective? What made that group/team ineffective (Review Chapter 9, pages 235-241)? What role did you play in the group (Review Chapter 9, pages 244-246)? For you, what are the advantages and disadvantages of being in a group or team (Review Chapter 9, pages 242-244)? Chapter 10 discusses leadership. In your group/team experience, what type and style of leader did the group have (Review Chapter 10, pages 267-271)?
