Groups are formed both formally and informally in different parts a person’s life. Both personal and professional lives are involved in the formations of groups whenever group discussions of communication are concerned. There are 3 different ways in which a person can connect or communicate with the group members which are on an emotional level political level and on an intellectual level.
If the emotional behaviour communication is concerned it can be said that people from a group can connect with each other on an emotional level if they shared the same cultural backgrounds of religious beliefs people from different parts of the world come together to form groups in a professional background where they tend to connect with each other when they see that they belong from the same cultural background or from the same religious background as well (Kim, 2016). Hence it becomes easier for them to connect with each other and understand each other in a better manner. Not only that but also empathy plays an important role in making the people connect with each other when a group is formed. If the group members are empathetic and understand each other’s emotions, then it becomes easier for them 2 understand the feelings of others and communicate with others in a better manner (Dimbleby & Burton, 2020). There is other four types of awareness’s that are needed to be considered by a person in order to be emotionally connected to the group members off the group that he or she is a part of. The first one being self-awareness which helps a person to understand the self-better in order to communicate with others in a much more empathetic manner. Then comes self-management which helps a person to manage his or her emotions in a better manner in order to deal with other people’s emotions as well (Watkins et al. 2020). The 3rd one being the social awareness which helps a person to understand the social background that he or she is a part of and to act accordingly. The last one is relationship management which gives an idea to the person who is dealing with different kinds of relationships with different group members to understand the bond that is share and how to implement that in personal and professional aspects. For example, if a group member is a Catholic then he would understand the religious beliefs of another Catholic group member in a much better manner rather than other people of the group.
Considering the political aspect of communication when a group is considered it can be said that there are different kinds of political aspects as well start is concerned when out group member is trying to communicate with the other group members of the following group. People can have different kinds of political preferences when national politics or world politics is concerned (Young, 2020). Different people might have different opinions about different political parties which can vary from the group members. On the other hand, they can also be similar with the group members as well which would help the group members to connect with each other on a better perspective. for example, if the political scenarios or perspectives of 2 group members are similar, they can connect with each other better and have a deep conversation about that which would also help them to connect with each other on an emotional perspective as well (Caton & Chapman, 2016). Not only that but also if there are diversity in the political concepts or ideas then they can develop new ideas and learn more things from each other as well.
Considering the intellectual part of communication when a group is considered it can be said that being intellectual is one of the most important aspects that needs to be followed by the group members in order to develop a professional behaviour in the group. There are certain criteria that needs to be there in the minds of the group member in order to develop their communication skills in a group such as the common goals and how to achieve it (Dost, 2016). Motivating each other is also an important role that needs to be played by the members in order to develop their communication skills. For example, if the group members understand that they need to work towards one certain goal and motivate each other on a regular basis then there would be a great chance of success that would help them in achieving the goal that they are working for.
