Firstly, we allocated the roles and tasks according to the self-assessment, which would help us identify our personal qualities including strengths and weakness. (Resources manual, 2008) Kate was the leader to create common purpose; Tenille was the achiever who wanted to succeed and strived for results and Stanko became the carer who was concerned that everyone was fitting in; Michael was the doer who always wanted to be active and I became the thinker to collect and analyze information.
