Using the guiding principle of balance, Working in Groups provides students with practical strategies, built on theory and research, for communicating and working successfully in groups.

Looking at both how groups work and how to work in groups, this accessible and user-friendly text gives students the tools to apply group communication theories, methods, and skills—helping them become more effective and ethical group members.

Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage includes traditional topics, from development and climate to leadership and problem solving, as well as key contemporary areas such as “team talk,” communication apprehension, group goal setting, group motivation, critical thinking and argumentation, and listening.
