Communicating in Groups

Author: Joann Keyton
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: PSU:000062474351
Release Date: 2006
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

To communicate effectively within groups and teams, we must understand our relationships with other members and how those relationships influence the tasks and activities that the groups and teams undertake. Communicating in Groups, Third Edition, emphasizes that all groups--decision-making and social--require members to successfully convey both relational and task messages. Author Joann Keyton points to the five key elements that define a group--size, interdependence, identity, goal, and structure--and demonstrates how group processes are facilitated or hindered by them. Using examples from field research on both task and social groups, Keyton depicts group interaction as it emerges through conversation. She provides frameworks for analyzing group interaction, recommendations for effective group practice, and numerous transcripts of authentic group communication that help to underscore the concepts. Thoroughly revised in this third edition, the book features new material on communication structures, group tasks and activities, communication competence, and decision making. Keyton includes updated literature reflecting recent communication and interdisciplinary group theory and research, and she also places more emphasis on gender and cultural diversity, stressing the need for students to consider the multiple ways in which diversity influences group interaction. Highlighting the important connection between task and relational messages in both task and social groups, Communicating in Groups, Third Edition, is ideal for undergraduate courses in group and team communication, as well as for management and business communication courses in group behavior and teamwork.

What if current leadership thinking is incomplete?What if you have constantly done the things all of the leadership ""gurus"" have suggested, and you still don't get the kind of results you seek?What if the real challenge of leaders is not vision, strategy, or execution?But, instead it is the daunting challenge of how to lead in a world of difference.In Cultural Leadership: The New Chemistry of Leading Differently thought leader B. Stewart argues that current leadership models are woefully incomplete in what he describes as this ""new world of difference.""

Small Group and Team Communication

Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Much of contemporary communication occurs between and among small groups, whether in person in a work setting or on the Internet via email, Facebook, or instant messages. How we engage in our small-group communication in each medium matters. To be effective we have to consider our group roles, norms, cohesion, process, and phases of development, as well as our personal verbal and nonverbal communication and listening styles. To succeed as a member of a team, we need to consider the limits of our personal experience and perspective, recognize the creative strength of diverse perspectives in decision making and problem solving, develop our conflict-management skills, and strengthen our leadership skills. To be successful necessitates an understanding of group process, participation style, ethical group behavior, and the influences of the medium. Small Group and Team Communication explores all these different interconnections and the communication strategies we use in our work and social groups. The authors use the systems perspective as their core approach throughout the text, treating small groups as complex open systems reliant upon communication to achieve success. Many chapters highlight the importance of considering ethics and diversity in relation to a variety of topics. Harris and Sherblom address the growing influence of computer-mediated communication to this discipline. Real-world, applied examples show students that what they’re learning aren’t simply abstract concepts, but knowledge that will serve them outside the classroom.

The past half-century has witnessed a dramatic increase in the scale and complexity of scientific research. The growing scale of science has been accompanied by a shift toward collaborative research, referred to as "team science." Scientific research is increasingly conducted by small teams and larger groups rather than individual investigators, but the challenges of collaboration can slow these teams' progress in achieving their scientific goals. How does a team-based approach work, and how can universities and research institutions support teams? Enhancing the Effectiveness of Team Science synthesizes and integrates the available research to provide guidance on assembling the science team; leadership, education and professional development for science teams and groups. It also examines institutional and organizational structures and policies to support science teams and identifies areas where further research is needed to help science teams and groups achieve their scientific and translational goals. This report offers major public policy recommendations for science research agencies and policymakers, as well as recommendations for individual scientists, disciplinary associations, and research universities. Enhancing the Effectiveness of Team Science will be of interest to university research administrators, team science leaders, science faculty, and graduate and postdoctoral students.
