Team communication is a process of information and experience exchange within a group of individuals working with one common objective, but different level and nature of contribution. This paper will present the reader with the opportunity to experience different scenarios of team communication process, based on the conclusions of practical experiments within several group environments and compositions.
In the scale of this document, we have analysed and examined several types of groups:
- Learning groups within educational environment.
- Project groups in business development environment.
- Non-purpose groups, such as a group of children playing together, or a group of adults, joined by the common interests (in this particular case we looked at the basketball training session in newly-established group of amateur players).
The result of this research paper will be of academic value solely and will create background for further studies on the group communication processes in various environments. The main focus of this work is to determine major obstacles in the development of the group activities and their journey through the forming, norming and storming stages.
One of the hypotheses we are planning to check and examine is how the team communication evolves with time and along with the team transformation from new to the established group with common objectives. The writer strongly believes that team communication is the key to successful and effective work. It is assumed that on the initial stage of team formation, individuals tend to communicate with each other on very superficial level, limited by lack of knowledge about each other and being outside their comfort zone. At this stage a lot of information remains undisclosed and team mostly suffers in feedback communication process.
