According to Alvernia University, a communication style for people is “a way in which they interact and exchange information with others”.
If one understands their communication style, one then better understands their communication strengths and flaws. Once these are recognized and understood, one can then work to improve their weaknesses and maintain or improve their strengths. This will aid one in individual and group settings.
In an individual and group setting, if one identifies their own stress indicators, they can then inform others and show why they act a certain way. This helps communication because the receiver can better understand the actions of the sender.
Additionally, a team is more likely to work if there is a common goal, complementary skills, all members are productive, and there is proper communication or constructive feedback.
In order to understand our own communication style, one can investigate their emotional intelligence. According to psychologist and author of Ecological Intelligence, Daniel Goleman,”emotional intelligence refers to how well we handle ourselves and our relationships”.
