I have found in my consulting career that one of the biggest obstacles to teamwork is effective team communication. Solid team communication skills are usually lacking for a variety of reasons. I am outlining what I call my five B’s to effective team communication. If every team could master these five B’s a lot of problems could be avoided, especially in regards to work team communication

Poor communication on teams can occur for a lot of reasons and range from convoluted messages, lack of full participation by team members, leaders withholding information, lack of cascading key information and using the wrong vehicle for communication (e-mail as opposed the phone or face to face).
