Group communication refers to the interactions among individuals in communal settings, and it may involve the exchange of verbal and nonverbal communication. Group communication is generally as effective as those involved make it. A group that is organized and gives group members equal opportunities to express opinions and convey ideas is significantly more productive than a group that contains distracted individuals or put some participants at a disadvantage.
In general, the smallest groups are ideal for fostering effective communication. The ideal group size has no more than five individuals, which increases the chance that each member can have an equal opportunity to share ideas and opinions. Group members take turns speaking and listening, and they should not assume that others have superior opinions.
