There’s probably been some time in your life when you’ve been just a touch surprised that you haven’t been hoisted upon shoulders and celebrated with cheers for your great achievement — whether you go as far back as that group English assignment making a diorama about summer reading or yesterday’s big client presentation.

We tend to underestimate other peoples capabilities, and overestimate our own. We go into group work with a negative mind set, which automatically makes it a negative experience. This article tries to convince you to not underestimate other poeples capabilities, but instead believe in your groups capabilities.
