Remember That People Need Convincing
When writing group dynamics remember that even highly intelligent and agreeable people can be unreasonable and will need convincing and even sometimes coddling. They will need their complaints listened to, even if they are complaining about the state of the universe. Someone will have to be the bigger person, someone will have to keep a calm head, and someone will be petty. This is a good time to add some shadow, some depth to otherwise bland characters.
