Increase communication among all teams by utilizing purposeful communication. Confronting issues and providing feedback is a form of purposeful communication. Purposeful communication is when a team member uses sensitivity and forethought when communicating a clear and concise message with a soothing tone that maintains a positive relationship for both parties involved (Cox, 2014; Wilson Learning Worldwide, 2007; & Singleton et al., 2011). Purposeful communication is communicating with tact and getting the point across without aggression and rudeness.
