  24. 24. How can a message be conveyed more effectively through voice? 24 (5 marks)Answer :Voice is the most important element of para language. It plays animportant role in communication. It is the first tool of effectivecommunication. It conveys the message in a very effective way. Amessage can be conveyed more effectively through voice by consideringthe following points:1. Variation of pitch : Pitch means quality of sound. In order to break the monotony of the speech, variation of pitch is essential. Variation of pitch is also necessary to keep ,he listener interested in the speech which is the very essence of communication.2. Variation of volume : Variation of volume puts life into ones speech. Variation of volume should be done according to the size of audience. The volume should be such which makes the speaker audible.
  25. 25. 253. Speed of speaking : Different part of the message should be spoken at different speed. Generally the part easily understandable can be spoken at a high speed while parts difficult to understand should be spoken in a slow speed. The speed thus should be such which ensures fluency.4. Pause : Pause is essential. One cannot go on speaking continuously. But a pause should be used effectively. It should be used at right time which not only give the speaker a time to breathe but also gains the listeners attention.5. Non-Fluencies : Non-fluencies up am, you know etc. if used carefully and sparingly add to the fluency of the speaker, giving him time to breathe and making the listener more.
  26. 26. "To Communicate the written word has several advantages over the 26spoken word." Explain. (5 marks)Written words has several added advantages over the spoken words :(i) While written words provides a permanent record for future reference and serves as a good guide for decision making and planning in future, spoken words on the other hand may be forgotten over a period of time.(ii) Written messages can be read and re-read again and again. Thus it is likely to be understood better. However oral messages are more likely to be misunderstood. The speaker due to his poor vocal expressions, may not be able to make himself clear and the listener may also be in- attentive.(iii) People are more precise and clear cut when they write rather when they speak. This is because written communication is normally penned down after proper planning. While in oral communication very often, the exact message to be conveyed is lost in a mass of words.(iv) Oral messages often gets distorted. This is more so in case of lengthy messages which when communicated through various level of hierarchy. Distortation of messages usually does not "take place in case where messages are conveyed through written words.
  27. 27. State reasons for selecting the oral mode of communication instead of the 27written mode of communication. (4 marks)Answer :Oral communication means communication through words spoken i.e. byspeech :-- In oral communication, both the parties to the process, i.e.sender and receiver, exchange their ideas through oral words either inface to face communication or through any mechanical or electricaldevice, such as telephone etc. In this system person can exchange theirfeelings fully and clarification regarding any doubt or ambiguity may besought. Oral communication is preferred by rank and file employees aswell as supervisors and managers, as they enjoy the opportunity to askquestions and to participate.Advantages :1. Economical : Oral communication is relatively less expensive. It saves the money spent on stationery in an organisation.2. Time saver : Oral communication is fast. It saves the time involved in writing the message.
  28. 28. 283. Flexible : Oral communication is very flexible in sense it provides an opportunity to the speaker to correct himself and make himself clear by changing his voice, pitch, tone etc.4. Quick response : Oral communication is also helpful in getting quicker response from the receiver. The speaker gets immediate response from the receiver. It thus provides immediate feedback to both sender and receiver.5. Personal touch : Oral communication is personal in nature. It is this nature that brings superiors and subordinates closer. It is also an effective tool of persuasion.6. Maintains secrecy : Oral communication has an added advantage of maintaining secrecy. Oral messages can be more easily kept confidential than written messages.7. Group communication : Oral communication is an effective tool for communicating with the groups at large. Group reactions can also be interoperated immediately to arrive at reasonable conclusions.

It saves the time involved in writing the message.3. Flexible : Oral communication is very flexible in sense it provides an opportunity to the speaker to correct himself and make himself clear by changing his voice, pitch, tone etc.4. Quick response : Oral communication is also helpful in getting quicker response from the receiver. The speaker gets immediate response from the receiver.

  31. 31. 315. Personal touch : Oral communication is personal in nature. It is this nature that brings superiors and subordinates closer. It is also an effective tool of persuasion.6. Maintains secrecy : Oral communication has an added advantage of maintaining secrecy. Oral messages can be more easily kept confidential than written messages.7. Group communication : Oral communication is an effective tool for communicating with the groups at large. Group reactions can also be interpreted immediately to arrive at reasonable conclusions. 31
  32. 32. Disadvantages/Limitations 321. Time Consuming : Oral communication may not be time saver always. Many a times it is seen that meetings continue for a long time without arriving at any satisfactory conclusion.2. Poor retention : Oral communication is more likely to be forgotten. The listener cannot always retain oral messages in his memory for long. Sometimes even the speaker may not remember what he actually said.3. Not suitable for lengthy messages : Very often oral communication gets distorted. This is more so in case of lengthy messages when communicated through various level of hierarchy.4. No record : No permanent record is kept in case of oral communication. In the absence of record, oral massages have no legal validity. 32
  33. 33. 335. Misunderstood : In oral communication, much depends upon the tone, pitch, voice etc. The speaker, due to his poor vocal expression. may not be able to make himself clear and the listener may also be in attentive. Thus the message may be misunderstocd.6. Not precise : Oral communication is not precise and to the point. People are more precise when they write rather when they speak. Very often, the exact message to be conveyed is lost in a mass of words. 33
  34. 34. 34Advantages :1. Permanent Record : Written communication provides a permanent record for future reference and serves as a good guide for decision making and planning in future.2. Precise and Accurate : The writer tries to organise his ideas logically before penning them down. As a result written communication tends to be more accurate, precise and reliable.3. Legal evidence : Written messages provide a permanent record and as such are used as legal evidence in a court of law. Written records are more reliable and acceptable as documentary proof. 34
  35. 35. 354. Wide coverage : Written communication has the widest possible coverage. It is perhaps the only means of communication when the sender and the receiver are separated by long distances.5. Easy to Understand : Written messages can be read and re-read again and again. Thus it is likely to be understood better.6. Suitable for lengthy messages : Lengthy messages loose their authenticity in oral communication. Written communication is thus very suitable for transmitting lengthy messages.7. Aids control : Written communication encourages deliberation, permits editing and review, helps to prevent distortion and consequent mis-understandings. 35
  36. 36. 36Disadvantages/Limitations :1. Time consuming : Written communication is not suitable when the message is to be sent immediately. It is time consuming event which requires time in not only sending it but also in putting the message in writing.2. Rigid : Written communication is rigid and lacks flexibility. The doubts and queries cannot be clarified immediately.3. Costly : Written communication is a bit more expensive than oral communication. It costs a lot in terms of stationery, postage and typing costs.4. Lack of secrecy : It is difficult to maintain secrecy in written communication. 36
  37. 37. 375. Delayed feedback : Written communication is mostly handicapped by its inability to get immediate feedback. The sender of the message is not able to judge the response of the receiver from his facial expression.6. Increases the workload : Written communication creates mountains of paper cluttered around the premises of the organisation. The staff has a tough time in managing it very often valuable papers are lost. Therefore staff/managers have to be extra careful about the papers. 37
  38. 38. 38Advantages :1. Para language aids the verbal communication. Verbal communication is incomplete without para- language.2. One can very easily judge the speakers background both educational and cultural from the way he speaks.3. Para language also indicates the speakers position in the hierarchical structure of the organisation.4. Para language is also helpful in dealing with a particular person.5. Para language is not rigid and one can improve it by observing and listening the good speakers. 38
  39. 39. 39Disadvantages1. Para language cannot be fully relied upon as it is only a like language.2. Listener has to be open minded otherwise the para language may prejudice him.3. Para language can thus be misleading or misguiding.4. It requires extra care to get the exact content of the language.5. Due to speakers belonging to different speech community it is difficult to achieve uniformity. 39
  40. 40. 40Time Language is another type of non verbalcommunication. Under it people communicate with eachother in terms of time by showing them in a sophisticatedway, the worth of time. Time pervades our thinking anddominates our communication. All communication is meantto be suitably timed. Time management is now one of themost important part of overall management. 40
  41. 41. State the major limitations of Paralanguage. 41 (3 marks)Answer :Limitation of para language1. Para language cannot be fully relied upon as it is only a like language.2. Listener has to be open minded otherwise the para language may prejudice him.3. Para language can thus be misleading or misguiding.4.

  42. 42. 42"Communication in an organization is a multidirectional". Discuss thestatement by explaining briefly the different types of channels ofcommunication based on directions of communication. (7 marks)Answer :Yes, it is true that communication in an organisation is multidirectional ormultidimensional. There a various directions in which it flows. It usually takesthe form of the pyramid. On the basis of direction, communication may be offour types :—1. Downward Communication : Communication that flows from the top level of the organisation to the bottom level along with the scalar chain are known as downward communication. Example for such type of communication are orders, instructions, rules, policies, programmes and directives etc. It specifies the extent of the subordinates authority and their responsibility.
  43. 43. 432. Upward Communication : Upward communication is just the opposite of downward communication. In this communication system, the message is transmitted from the bottom of the organisation upwards to the top of the organisation through the middle managers along with the line. Usually this includes workers grievances, suggestions and reactions. This communication system was not appreciated by the superiors. But it has assured importance in modern times and is considered to be a main source of motivating employees.3. Horizontal Communication : The flow of information between departments or people of equal level in an organisational structure may be termed as horizontal or lateral communication. The two departments may be under the same superior or may have different heads. Such communication may be written or oral. The main object of lateral communication is to co-ordinate the efforts of different departments or persons.
  44. 44. 444. Diagonal Communication : Diagonal Communication is between people who are neither in the same department nor on the same level of organisational structure. It cuts across departmental lines. It generally takes place when members cannot communicate effectively through other channels. These upward, downward, horizontal or diagonal communication may be oral, written, formal, informal or even gestural. 44

  47. 47. 4713. Long chain of Command Army general to soldier14. Closed mind 47
  48. 48. What are the socio-psychological barriers to communication? 48 (5 marks)Answer :Communication to be effective should be free of barriers which obstructthe free flow of communication. Social and psychological factors are themost difficult barriers to communication. These consist of the following:1. Attitude and opinions : The personal attitude and opinions of the receiver often interfere with communication. If the message is consistent with the receivers attitude and opinion they receive it favourably. When the message is inconsistent with the receivers attitude and opinions, they are not likely to be received favourably.2. Emotions : Emotions like fear. anger, worry, nervousness block the mind. It also blurs the thinking power and one fails to organise the message properly. When the message is not organised properly it cannot be conveyed effectively.
  49. 49. 493. Status difference : Status consciousness is a very serious barrier. Subordinates fail to communicate to with their superiors because either they are too conscious of their low status or too afraid of being snubbed off. Similarly many executives keep distance from their subordinates thinking it too degrading to consult them.4. In attention : In attention arises due to mental preoccupations or distractions. These causes barriers to communication.5. Closed mind : A person with closed mind is not willing to listen and is not prepared to reconsider his opinion. As such it is very difficult to communicate with such person.6. Distrust : Distrust after fails to deliver the right message. When the receiver is biased or hostile towards the sender the message is either ignored or misinterpreted.
  50. 50. 507. Poor retention : Successive transmission of the message are decreasingly accurate. In the process of transmission a part of the message is lost at every stage. This is because of poor retention on the part of the receiver. Thus incomplete message is conveyed.8. Premature evaluation : Premature evaluation prevents effective communication. Some people form a judgement even before receiving the complete message. And once judgement is already formed the mind is closed to the rest of the message.
  51. 51. 5190% of the problems in any organisation are caused by ineffectivecommunication. How ? (Give any five reasons) (5 marks)Answer :It is very true that 90% of the problems in any organisation are caused byineffective communication. It is evident from the following:1. Unclear message : When the sender is not sure of what he wants to communicate, why he wants to do it, to whom he wants to communicate, his message can never be clear. This is more because a clear message can never be sent from unclear mind.. An unclear massage is likely to be decoded in different ways giving different meanings.2. Incomplete message : Incomplete messages keep the receiver guessing. This creates misunderstanding and often delays action.3. Incorrect message : When incorrect message is communicated, wrong decisions are taken in light of incorrect message.
  52. 52. 524. Absence of attention : Both the receiver and sender has to pay their full attention. Lack of attention leads to distortion of message giving out a different meaning.5. Noise : Ineffective communication also results from noise. Noise acts as a major barrier to communication. Noise distracts the persons and incorrect message is conveyed.
