    • Dialogic Communcation
      How to get the most out of group meetings
    • Everyone has been in that group where one person bossed around the others in order to get the job done.
    • In order for a group to successfully share ideas and move towards finishing their project, each member should have equal voice and be open to new ideas.
    • Such a process is known as
    • Whereas when one person takes control and communicates, it is known as an “I-IT” method….
      …in dialogic communication, everyone in the group communicates in an “I-THOU” method
    • There are 6 characteristics of an “I-Thou” relationship, according to Richard Johanesen
    • Mutual Openness
      Everyone shares their ideas
    • 2. Nonmanipulative
      No one tries to force their ideas down the other peoples’ throats
    • 3. Recognition of Uniqueness
      Realization that everyone’s ideas are different and can bring something new to the project
    • 4. Mutual confirmationEven if someone does not have a good idea, they are given their say and taken seriously
    • 5. Turning Toward
      If the ideas presented are not the same, common ground is found and compromises are made
    • 6. Nonevaluativeness
      Group members are to see the others’ point of view, despite possible difference in opinion
    • So who can use this theory??
      Interpersonal and organizational communication
      2.Public Relations
      3. Anyone who is stuck in another group project.
    • Have I wasted my time by reading this?
      It’s entirely possible, but nowadays, more and more projects are group-oriented, not just at school, but in the working world. When you find yourself in these situations, you now know a better way to brainstorm and move forward with your work.
    • Is Dialogic Communication Bulletproof?
      Like every theory, there are holes. I think that there should be a central figure in every project, just so the group is better organized. That being said, the best groups are the ones where everyone contributes to the final product.
    • The Future of Dialogic Communication
      We’ve talked a lot about this theory in regards to group projects, but it can also help companies with their public relations.
    • If companies can receive consumer feedback in a dialogic way, the consumer will feel a stronger connection to that company and is more inclined to continue using said company.
    • With the invention of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, companies are creating easier avenues for information to and feedback from consumers.
    • So when you’re dealing with a lot of sh*t in your group, just remember to keep it “I-THOU” and remember the 6 steps to keep the airwaves open….
      … and that candlesticks always make a nice gift.
    • …now let’s go get two.
