Dynamic group culture

Section 1

Chapter 6 of our course text (pages 79 – 91) covers various types of social roles in groups including The Leader, The Follower, The Rebel/Alternative Leader, The Mediator, and The Scapegoat. Please share an example of an organizational employee or leader who functioned in one of these roles within a group. What were the specific functions, situations, and or responsibilities that best describe the person you selected in this role? How could s/he have changed behavior to act differently?
