A team member who does not submit his or her portion of an assignment When you are a part of a team it is important to understand that your actions, or lack of actions, affect the entire team. A team leader makes assignments for portions of a project to be completed in order for the entire project to be completed on time and ensure that one person on the team isn’t doing more than they can handle. When a member of the team does not do what they were assigned, the rest of the team has to pick up the slack and rush to complete the portion that the team member missed. This puts the rest of the team in a situation that could cause stress and extra work that they wouldn’t have had to deal with if the team member had done what they said they would do. In order to avoid this it is important for all team members to understand the importance of doing what they are assigned to do.

A team member who does not meet deadlines
There are many things to consider when something goes wrong when you are a part of a team or group. The first thing I would do is make sure that the deadline was known and that the team member understood the deadline and what was supposed to be completed. If there was a misunderstanding then I would make sure that the rest of the team didn’t have the same misunderstanding about the deadlines and their importance. This situation is especially true for me and this assignment. I was late in submitting my portion and it has put team members in this exact scenario. The way I would handle this with myself, is to make sure I know how important deadlines are and how the impact the work of the rest of the team. I would let myself know that people are relying on me to have my portion of a project or assignment done in order for their portions to be implemented and the final project to be completed. In order to avoid this in the future, I will make sure that I keep track of all deadlines and schedule my time accordingly.
