Communicating in Groups: Applications and Skills
Communicating in Groups is designed for the first or second year student who may not have had a prior communication course and who may never take a subsequent one - but who must work in groups because that is the nature of corporate, educational and civic participation in this day and age.
Two overarching goals guide the writing of this book. First, being able to work effectively in groups is not a luxury - it's a necessity. Second, students to recognize that effective group work is, to a great extent, a matter of communication behaviour, not a matter of personality or fate. students need to start thinking about their own communicative choices in groups and to have the tools to make wise choices so they can make the groups they belong to as rewarding and productive as possible.
Communicating in Groups 10th edition provides a fresh look at modern group communication while retaining the foundational information about research and theory that has made the text so popular.
