If evidence of good prioritization, coordination, or other planning elements are there, reward this explicitly.

Do "post-mortems".
Have teams review how a task, assignment, project unfolded.

Top 10 List: Ingredients for Student Success
What do you think? What would your list look like?
A little icebreaker ...

Write down the name of someone you admire because you feel they are "successful".
Someone famous? Or your best friend? Anyone.
(You will not be asked to share this name!)

Write down THREE attributes of that person that you feel has helped them be successful. These may be attributes you wish to emulate.

In your groups ...

Share your list of attributes with the other members of your group, creating a master list.

Duplicates? No problem. Indicate the total number of iterations with brackets.
Ability to focus (3)

Decide within your group which attributes are the top three that contribute to "success". Try to reach consensus.

Time Management
Stress Management
Personal Management
Perserverance / Work Ethic
Personal Responsibility
Team / Interpersonal Skills
Risk-Taking / Tolerance of Failure
In your groups ...

Share your list of attributes with your group. Create a master list from the input of all members.

Duplicates? No problem. Indicate the number of iterations using a number in brackets.
Ability to focus (3)

As a group, decide which three items on the master list are most critical as success factors.

How can we help students develop?
Discuss personality types.
Integrate a Myers-Briggs, Keirsey, True Colors or similar type assessment into your curriculum. Raise awareness that perhaps people are not inherently "bad" or "good" but may have a personality type that just is harder for YOUR personality type to adapt to.

Use Team Charters for Team Projects.
Have teams develop and codify their own team protocols.
