Empathy Intervention – Mac Gray

One topic which I felt would be interesting to reflect upon is the aspect of team work. It is a general consensus that nobody likes to feel like they have someone on their team who doesn’t contribute. Throughout working with my lab group, I have come to realize that one of my team members often doesn’t seem motivated to help. This lack of motivation could be coming from any number of things such as; they are too shy to share their ideas, they don’t want to slow the team down, etc. Although my initial reaction to this realization was anger, after looking at the issue through their perspective, I now see that there could be endless factors contributing to the lack of motivation. In the past I have felt like contributing my ideas would in fact slow down my hard working teammates. After reflecting about the issue and the possible causes, I will now try to search for solutions rather than place blame on my peers.
