This is a more generic academic topic, so i'm not sure if this is the place to post. I'm working with a group for a research project, and it hasn't been going well. We end up pulling an all nighter the night before a presentation, so I'm exhausted the next day. When I try to arrange group meetings before then, I don't get any responses, or it doesn't pan out. I am really frustrated and it feels like I end up doing more than my fair share of work... I guess my question is how can I communicate to my group that we need to be more efficient without coming across as a total witch with a b? i know i need to work on this, but my first instinct when someone doesn't do their part of the work (which in the end causes all of us to look bad) is to yell at them. i haven't actually done this, but i feel as if i might.... i'm trying to be good. i know i have to learn how to work with groups, and how to deal with people who don't meet my expectations... so what is the best way to do this? <rereading my post, i realize i am a b, but like i said, i'm trying my best to get past that>.
