Best ways to handle group work

From children to adults, group work is something everyone does at many points in their life, let it be in a professional capacity or a personal one. It teaches us collaboration.

Sometimes you might be a part of a group that you love but sometimes you might struggle to get the most out of the group due to conflicting ideas or poor communication. Here’s some basic tips on how to handle group work:

  1. Getting to know each other- It is good to build a relationship with each member in order to communicate better. Having an awareness of what’s going on with others is important when part of a team and helps develop skills like emotional intelligence.

  2. Effective communication- When part of a team one has to be willing to listen and discuss with an open mind - the different voices, different views and different opinions of everyone involved in order for the team to work together and move forward. 

  3. Setting ground rules-  Once everyone is ready to get down to business, creating a group contract that outlines ground rules, expectations and response time is essential.

  4. Dividing tasks wisely- It is way more efficient and productive when the tasks are divided based on every member’s strength and interest. 

  5. Giving everyone space to contribute -  Rather than having an individual member overcontribute, distributing tasks equally so every member of the group so that everyone can contribute equally to the goals and feel included is important.

  6. Setting mini milestones and rewards along the way- Since group projects can be long, celebrating mini-victories and milestones helps everyone stay motivated and on track.

Remember, the key to successful and efficient group work lies in respecting everyone’s contribution, working together towards common goals and embracing different ideas and perspectives within the group. With these strategies in mind, you can make the best out of any group project with ease.
