Being productive in a group setting

When we join with others to get a job done what role can we play to contribute our best effort?  Certain points stand out:  I don’t want to bring my anger or fears to the situation; they’ll be plenty of that from the others.  I want to listen to what others have to say so I take in all the different points of view, so I understand what the group is thinking.  When things get chaotic, I can remind everyone our frustrations aren’t getting us anywhere.  I can lend support to others where my talents apply.  I can carefully word my constructive criticism so as not to offend others.  I can remain calm and open when others criticize me and not try and defend my position, instead, letting them know I appreciate their point of view.   These are just a few of the ways we can contribute to a well-managed project.
