Re: Group Communication

Mrs. Johnson I would like to start off by saying congratulations on your new manager position within the company. In your managerial position, you will have four employees who have worked with the company for a period of time. The employees have worked and communicated well with each other. Each person puts each others needs and the companies’ needs before their own. While I have been their manager, they have been very productive and have met all goals that have been placed before them.

Everyone in the group needs to be honest. The group will need to select someone to take notes to bring to you.
Now, you will need to identify all barriers. Some barriers could be as simple as a misunderstanding. You will need to develop an action plan. Introduce a creative way to address the changes you want to make. If you want a group effort, this could make the team react positively. You need to let everyone know how important each member of the team is. This will also help with productivity of the company. You will also need to understand that sometimes conflict in communication is a good thing. It will play a vital role in the group. Most people, in most circumstances, will try to avoid groupthink. This should generate more ideas with the group looking for an effective solution. The group is more open to their co-workers opinions along with their plan to execute their idea. By having some conflict, the employee will be persuading. They will give all the reasons their plan is the best and why the other is not. They will provide examples for both. I think that this brings out the best for the office.
In my experiences, when there has been a conflict in the group, they will be more motivated to come up with a plan that will be effective for everyone. Unfortunately, there is always a negative side to group conflict.
