This looks weirdly like a question for a cv. Is it?
I'm all for teamwork, but I believe within a team there needs to be individual accountability. I do not handle being faulted for someone else's failure to participate. If someone can't accomplish their tasks, I am willing to jump in and assist, but this is where communication becomes important. Don't wait until a task has failed to inform the group there is a problem. Worse, when asked how things are moving along, don't say everything is fine, only to tell everyone the job isn't done when it's too late to intervene.
Because I've been part of teams that failed to complete projects, I wound up taking on a leadership role where I kept track of what needed to happen when, and had reminders to check progress, and flagged tasks to know if something isn't completed by that time, intervention was necessary to complete the task in order to ensure other tasks dependent on that task wouldn't be delayed.
I did pretty well doing that, and was made a full time project manager.
A couple of summers ago, I had a class in which many including myself were struggling, especially with exams,
due to our teacher answering personal calls during them. (It's bad enough to do so during a lecture, but not cool
during an exam which requires concentration from students eh) Out of options & not having the guts to apologize
he encouraging us to do an extra credit assignment: Look up also write down definitions to about 1000 words and
other terminology relevant to the course. When giving him my project (after waiting in line for about two hours as
there were about 50 of us in the class) in he barely skimmed through it, looking at random words on random pages.
I did get the points, which ensured that I would get a C, but had he been more professional (especially as his syllabus
clearly stated students must keep their phones off during class and he'd do the same) it wouldn't have been necessary.
