Like humans, dolphins’  survival depends on their ability to communicate with one another. 

To that end,  they have gradually evolved their communication in certain ways: from actual physical contact, body language such as tail slapping to vocal communication via high pitched clicking sounds and whistles. 

By using these adaptations, they learn to direct, lead, and protect each other.

Clear communication is essential if a team is to be successful. Kind and clear communication, either written, text, emailed, or video conferenced, brings teams closer together in stressful situations. 

Good communication is a fundamental requirement to produce a fully functioning team.
