Group communication refers to the interaction between members of a small group of

individuals. Group communication applies to groups containing between three and 20 people.
Communication between two people is a dialog, and larger groups are unable to use group
communication effectively. Quality group communication involves a facilitator and group
members with a sense of belonging, common goals and mutual respect. Both verbal and
nonverbal communication are components of group communication.
Successful group communication is essential in a business environment. Many variables
come into play, starting with the seating arrangement. A circular seating arrangement allows all
group members to make eye contact and interact with all other members. This forms the
foundation for a web network style of communication, with all group members sharing ideas
with each other. Sociologists find this type of group communication arrangement to be the most
effective for generating ideas, making decisions and solving problems.
When the primary purpose of a group is to share information, an alternate arrangement is
preferable. This form of group communication starts with a seating arrangement that emphasizes
the group leader: for example a long table with the leader at one end. The leader presents
information, and group members give feedback.
