Your professor assigned you to work in a small group with three other students that you’ve never worked with before. She expects each person to equally participate and to complete the work by the designated deadline. However, two of the members are never available to meet and refuse to do any work.
How do you resolve this conflict, and why? Choose one of the following:
Explain that you need their help (emphasizing the need for equal participation)
Praise them for being in the group (providing motivation)
