Assertive Communication

Home » Public Seminars » Assertive Communication

It is through communication that members interact, and effective communication is a prerequisite for every aspect of group functioning.

Communication is the basis of all human interaction and for all group functioning.

Every group must take in and use information. A group exist because of communication, on exchanging information and transmitting meaning. All cooperative action is contingent upon effective communication, and our daily lives are filled with one communication experience after another.

Through communication, members of groups reach some understanding of one another, build trust, coordinate their actions, plan their strategies, agree upon division of labour, and conduct all group activities —even exchange insults. It is through communication that members interact, and effective communication is a prerequisite for every aspect of group functioning. (Joining together: Group Theory and Group Skills by David W. Johnson and Frank P Johnson, 1987, p.173) this proves just how important communication is in the success of the organization. Poor communication can lead to performance and poor performance can lead to losses hence, a company cannot afford to have poor communication.
