    1. 1. Corporate Communication Module 1 TINKUTINKU IBMR- HIBMR- H
    2. 2. Definition:  Corporate Communication is the process by which information is transmitted between individuals/employees and/or organizations so that an understanding response results.  Communication is the process of sending and receiving messages – sometimes through spoken or written words and sometimes through such nonverbal means as facial expressions, gestures and voice qualities.
    3. 3. Stimulus Filter Message Medium Destination Feedback The Components of Communication
    4. 4. Stimulus: In order for communication to take place, there first must be a stimulus, an event that creates within an individual the need to communicate. This stimulus can be internal or external.  A stimulus for communicating in business might be an email message you just read, a presentation you heard at a staff meeting etc. The Filter: Our knowledge, experience and view points acts as a filter to help us interpret (decode) the stimulus. Here the compatible stimuli have a greater impact than conflicting stimuli. Stimuli that reinforces existing beliefs are likely to create more lasting impression and to generate a stronger response than those that call into question your existing beliefs. The Message: We formulate (encode) a verbal or nonverbal response to the stimulus. The extent to which any communication effort achieves its desired goal depends very directly on how well you construct the message.
    5. 5. The Medium: Here the form of the message or the medium has to be selected. Oral messages: staff meeting, telephone conversation, personal conference, press conference, voice mail, company grapevine. Written messages: memorandum, a report, a letter, a contract, a brochure, a bulletin-board notice, email, a company newsletter, a press release or an addition to policies and procedures manual. Nonverbal message: facial expression, body movement, gesture The Destination: The message reaches its destination and, if successful, is perceived accurately by the receiver. Even assuming your receiver does receive your message, you have no assurance that it will be interpreted (filtered) as you intended. Your transmitted message then becomes the source or stimulus for the next communication episode and the process begins a new.

    7. 7. Communicating in Work Teams Team: A team is a group of individuals who depend on one another to accomplish a common objective. Teams are often superior to individuals because they can accomplish more work, are more creative, have more information available to them and offer more interpersonal communication dynamics.  The Variables of Group Communication - Conflict - Conformity - Consensus  Initial Group Goals - Acknowledge the need for feedback - Give both positive and negative feedback - Learn how to give feedback 1. Be descriptive 2. Avoiding using labels 3. Don’t exaggerate 4. Speak for yourself 5. Use “I” statements
    8. 8. Sequence Explanation “When you …….” Start with a “When you…..” statement that describes the behavior without judgment, exaggeration, labeling. Just state the fact as specifically as possible. “I feel ……..” Tell how the behavior affects you. “Because I …….” Now say why are you affected that way. Describe the connection between the facts you observed and the feelings they provoke in you. (pause for discussion) Let the other person respond “I would like ……” Describe the change you want the other person to consider…. “Because…….” ….. and why you think the change will help alleviate the problem. “What do you think?” Listen to the other person’s response. Be prepared to discuss options and compromise on solution How the feedback works: When you [do this], I feel [this way], because [of such and such]. What I would like you to consider is [doing x], because I think it will accomplish [y]. What do you think?
    9. 9. Example: “When you are late for meetings, I get angry because I think it is wasting the time of all the other team members and we are never able to get through our agenda items. I would like you to consider finding some way of planning your schedule that lets you get to these meetings on time. That way we be more productive at the meetings and we can all keep to our tight schedules. What do you think?”  Conflict Resolution  Team Writing - Assign task and develop a schedule - Meet regularly - Draft the document (speaks with one voice) - Provide helpful feedback on team writing - Revise the draft.  The Ethical Dimension of Work-Team Communication
