If you are teaching teaming skills and have 15–20 minutes for team communication, here is what you might do:
Learning Objective Students should be able to identify their strengths in communication (good listener, good speaker).
Classroom Activity Review with the students what communication is and why it is important for a team.
Team members might identify and share with one another their communication styles ("Sender’s Culture" section). Team members should identify how they positively impact their team with their communication styles and identify where areas of conflict might arise between team members because of different communication styles. Remember to point out that there is no wrong communication style, but team members must be aware of differences in communication styles among team members in order to increase understanding and decrease making wrong assumptions, thus creating more conflict.
