´╗┐Communication P3 Many factors can influence communication between two or more people. There are positives and negatives to communication factors. The Tuckman?s theory helps to establish what happens when a group comes together. There are 4 steps in this theory. Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing. 1. Forming means that everybody in the group is coming together and everybody in that group relies on a leader. In our group we all relied on one person to lead the conversation and tell us what to do. We also didn?t feel comfortable with each other. 2. Storming means that the group is trying to establish who gets what position in the group.

Technology can be a good way of communicating with people around the world; technology can mean phones and computers. There are also different types of interactions which are complex, sensitive and simple. Having a complex conversation could be about making a care plan for a relative or talking about medical conditions with doctors. Having a sensitive conversation with someone could mean talking about somebody dying or something which may upset somebody. Having a simple conversation could simply be ?hello, how are you? with a friend or a relative. Simple interactions are used in every day life with everybody you meet. Ilona Stephenson.
