“Hello Professor Tillman and class,

I would focus on social psychology first. As a consultant coming into the company for the first time, I would like to observe daily interactions of each team to determine how well each person works with their team members. I believe that having a team that works well together contributes to the success as well as the failures of an organization. Most companies are only as strong as their teams, so I think that would be a great place to start.”
