Introduction

Communication and Collaboration Strategy Paper Donna Richter General Studies 200 Mr. Kamal Faour May 25, 2011 Communication and Collaboration Strategy Paper To function effectively in a group of individuals you must develop strategies for communicating and collaborating within a group that have different learning styles and personality types. To do so you will need to know your own learning styles and personality types. My top three learning styles in order were: Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, and Verbal-Linguist. Interpersonal skills are often referred to as possessing people skills. Some skills related to the Interpersonal style are, seeing things from others' perspectives, cooperating within a group, and communicating verbally and nonverbally.

Conclusion

I seek clarity in everything I do, which works well with my Organizer personality type. Even though I like working within a group, when first given a task I like to take time by myself to gather my thoughts. When making a decision I am driven by facts, logic, and reason. Within a group, I would look at the facts given and logically come up with a plan to complete the task. Once you understand your own learning styles and personality types, you need to understand the groups learning styles and personality types and how the differ from your own. Focusing on how their learning styles and personality types will benefit the team. For example, you can assign tasks that capitalize on those person strengths. When this is accomplished a group of individuals will connect and communicate more successfully. They will work effectively within the team environment. ...read more.
