During the informal meet and greet the team leader personally spoke with each member and members chatted with other members. Following this, the thirty-minute formal introductions took place. The team leader introduced herself and had requested for team members introduce themselves and answer at least one of the following three questions:

1. Describe your perfect day

2. What is your preferred pet?

3. What is your favorite food?

After each introduction, the leader made a positive comment about the team member. Following the introductions, the leader looks at her watch and shares her view that in spite of the time it takes communicating personally with group members it results in greater effective communication between group members, which in turn increases the sense of group cohesiveness.
