COMMUNICATING IN GROUPS AND TEAMS
THE NATURE OF GROUPS AND TEAMS. your experiences may be closer to homes but you are probably involved in groups and teams everyday. some groups such as those made up of friend's and family are informal.
GROUP is a small collection of people whose members interact with one another usually face to face over time in order to reach goals.

clear and inspiring shared goals.
