Reflection Paper On Group Work

Decent Essays

I really enjoyed working with my PSP group this semester. Seeing them outside of class helped me get to know them more and see how they show their strengths in group work. As we got more comfortable with each other, staying focused also became more difficult but overall we were successful in getting our work done.

I have noticed that whenever I state my opinion it is valued and that maybe someone else thought about it too. I have seen that even if I may be wrong about my opinion, it can clarify an issue for others as well. Also, being the one who creates or submits the assignment may not seem like that much extra work, but those people help others start their work and understand it, or catch things while they are submitting the assignment. They might see things outside from the other group members, since they are beginning their work early or quickly glancing at the end result. These initiative tasks are some changes I can make or apply to help me continue to grow in my leadership by adding another opinion to the group, but also seeing all the opinions as a whole.
