Imagine a local company has contacted you regarding how they use and implement teams within the workplace. Includethe topics and models covered in the readings: crowding, evaluation apprehension, social loafing, groupthink, group polarization, social pressure, and minority influence. Create a 10- to 12 slide Microsoft® PowerPoint®, research-based presentation to help the company understand the various benefits and pitfalls of team- or group-based work. Address the following in your presentation:
Discuss research findings on the various dynamics of groups of people working together.
Translate the research results into everyday terms, as your audience will be people unfamiliar with psychological jargon.
