In a very basic model of communication, a message has to pass from the receiver to the recipient through a channel such as air.
Language barrier- we live in a multicultural society. There are different ethnic groups people speak a wide range of languages. English may be a second language for some people and may not be spoken or understood at all by others.

Eventually, the purpose of the group and the roles within it become clearer as power and control battles are won and lost. Without tolerance and patience at this stage, the team will fail. Co-operation between members should begin to develop towards the end of this
