There has been research that when a student in middle school is given projects with real-world consequences, they grow up with extremely advanced commitment skills, and tend to be much more stable and reliable when it comes to projects and challenges in their careers. Being a better team member starts with someone’s upbringing and education. Students must get a taste of the fact that their actions have consequences, and that for every action there is a reaction. They must learn that if they succeed, it helps a team succeed as well.
