All the work was divied up evenly I would type up the essay, someone would create the presentation, and thee other would present it.
Out of suspicion I did all the work created the presentation, and typed the essay. I was right neither one did their part, and I was left to present the project as well
In the end everyone in my group got an A on the project even though i did all the work.
Being quiet I sat back with my friends, and let the athletic kids try to figure out the task presented to us. Even though they couldn't figure it out
My friend came up to me, and gave me a solution to task, but was afraid to speak up thinking no one would listen to him, so I did it for him
After about five minutes of forcing my way into a group that refused to listen they finally tried my friends idea, and actually got across the "Lake of Lava".
No kid likes being forced to do anything, especially being forced to exert some kind of energy.

Confronting Team Members
What it means
Written by Patrick Lencioni
Project by Nick Towli
Dealing with people you don't like is easy. Dealing with friends that you have to see everyday is hard.
Being in command of a whole team is hard especially when all of them are my friends, so its hard for me to tell them when they are doing something wrong.
Toward the beginning of the year I wouldn't deal with anything telling somebody they weren't doing their job properly, or doing something wrong, so that means jobs weren't getting done.
Some how building up the courage to tell them that things needed to change these people got the message and began working harder and stopped goofing off, now I have no problem admitting mistakes because I know they'll be fixed.
Individuals or a team refusing to admit to their mistakes causes confusion, and frustration amongst the team as a whole, leaving no room for improvement.
Growing up I was forced to play baseball, it forced me to wake up early, and miss Yu-Gi-Oh every Saturday morning.
Being the stubborn child that I was I refused to try, and I gave my parents are hard time everyday to hopefully annoy them to the point where they said I didn't have to go to the game which never happened. I would always get punished
With my lack of caring, and trying I never got any good at baseball and my team lost just about every single game I played.
Everyday my class and I would go over handwriting drills to improve our penmanship, I would slack off and do as little work as I could.
Soon our handwriting began being graded, and it just wasn't getting better, and of course I never looked at my grades because I just didn't care.
Well end of the first marking period came to a close, and I got a low B in the penmanship category, B's were acceptable in my mom's eyes so I was happy, every other semester that followed I received a C in penmanship, and every time I got grounded for it.
