2. There is a huge difference while team communication takes place compared to communication that takes place one-to-one. In team communication, a single message has to be interpreted by more than one individual while in one-to-one communication there is only one receiver of the message. The sender of the message in team communication needs to ensure that his/her message is understood by all and in one-to-one communication, the sender has to only ensure that the message is understood by one individual. In case of team-based communication a message may not be directly communicated to the receiver and in one-to-one communication mostly face-to-face communication takes place.
3. One of the main benefits of teamwork is that division of labor takes place and parts of a task are divided amongst those who can complete that part in the best possible manner. Due to this, there are lesser chances of wastage and mistake. Secondly, in teamwork, different members come up with different ways of performing a task which helps in identifying new and improved methods of accomplishing tasks. The disadvantage of teamwork is that conflict may arise between people from different groups and subgroups may be formed within the team that may indulge in negative political behavior.
4. The first stage of team development is forming a stage in which team members are brought together but are not well acquainted with each other and do not have any idea about their tasks and roles. The second stage is storming the stage in which there is an immense conflict between team members and they tend to gain authority and challenge the authority of the team leader. The third stage is norming stage in which team members accept each other and even accepts the authority of the leader and in this stage, their roles become clearer.
