    2. 2. Communication (coming from the Latin word "communis", meaning to share) IS a process in which people exchange information, news, ideas, feelings and also create and share meaning through an accepted code of symbols.• in general is a means of connecting people or places• in business is a key function of management Michelina Viggiani
    3. 3. Methods of communicationOne-way communication • Information flows only in one direction –from the sender to the receiver with no feedback (memo, fax, email, letter) • A much common way of communication because it is faster and easier for the sender and there is no trouble from disagreement. • There may be mistakes in transmission of information. Two-way communication • A process in which information flows in two-directions – the receiver provides feedback and the sender receptive to the feedback. (Phone call, in person ) • It is more accurate and fewer mistakes in transmission. • But it is time-consuming and more difficult for the senderCollaborative communication • Team meetings, consulting, decision making, group problem solving Michelina Viggiani

    5. 5. NONVERBAL - VERBAL COMMUNICATION• Nonverbal Communication - all elements of communication that donot involve words.Four basic types: Proxemics - an individual’s perception and use of space Kinetics - study of body movements, including posture Facial & Eye Behaviour - movements that add cues for the receiver Paralanguage - variations in speech, such as pitch, loudness, tempo, tone, duration, laughing, & crying • Verbal Communication - The encoding of messages into words, either written or spoken Michelina Viggiani
    6. 6. Communication Process encode decode Sender Medium Receiver FeedbackThe communication process is the guidetoward realizing effective communication. Michelina Viggiani
    7. 7. Communication Key Elements• Source/Sender – an individual, group, or organization who initiates the communication and is initially responsible for the success of the message• Message – what information to communicate• Encoding – sender translates the message into symbols or language• Medium/Channel – pathway through which an encoded message is transmitted to a receiver Michelina Viggiani
    8. 8. • Decoding - The processing stage where the receiver interprets the symbols sent by the sender, translates the message and tries to make the symbols meaningful• Receiver – the individual or group to whom the message is directed• Feedback - is initiated by the receiver who decides what message to send to the original sender ( Feedback eliminates misunderstandings, allows the sender to evaluate the effectiveness of the message)• Noise – refers to anything that interferes at any stage of the communication process Michelina Viggiani
    9. 9. Communication Key Elements• Source/Sender – an individual, group, or organization who initiates the communication and is initially responsible for the success of the message• Message – what information to communicate• Encoding – sender translates the message into symbols or language• Medium/Channel – pathway through which an encoded message is transmitted to a receiver Michelina Viggiani
    10. 10. Characteristics of effective communicationsEffective communication requires the message to be:• Clear and concise• Accurate• Relevant to the needs of the receiver• Timely• Meaningful• Applicable to the situation Michelina Viggiani
