In this video, the Kellogg School lays out ways business leaders can counteract the Social Loafing effect, the tendency for people to exert less effort when in larger groups. The first method is draw up a concise team contract, with a goal, responsibilities, and group norms, and have all team members sign. Second, short, frequent meetings as opposed to long, infrequent meetings. Third, weekly progress reports. Finally, make sure each team member can see the end result and the connection of their work to that result.
