Communicating in a group

There are various communication strategies you can use when you are in group situations, such as department meetings, at work.

  • Explain that round or semicicular tables will allow you to see everyone's face
  • Explain that you may need to sit next to or across from the speaker so you can see the speaker's face
  • Make sure only one person speaks at a time and have the person indicate when he/she is speaking
  • Use visual aids and ask that time be given to read the information before person starts speaking
  • Asked that an agenda of the topics to be discussed at the meeting be handed out ahead of time and ask that notes be taken to distribute after the meeting
