Defining Communication

  1. 1. Defining Communication
  2. 2. Sender <ul><li>This is the creator of a message. </li></ul><ul><li>Can be the most important aspect of successful communication. </li></ul><ul><li>Controls how a message is sent to the receiver. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Encoding <ul><li>How can I convey this message? </li></ul><ul><li>Is there a way that I can relate my message to the receiver to help them better understand? </li></ul><ul><li>Think about the receiver’s history and capabilities. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Message <ul><li>This is what you want the receiver to understand. </li></ul><ul><li>Can take on many forms depending on how it is encoded. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Channel <ul><li>How can I transmit this message? </li></ul><ul><li>You can describe a picture to a person in writing, but the printed image will give a clearer interpretation. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Receiver <ul><li>Relay your message to the receiver. </li></ul><ul><li>The goal is to provide this entity with a clear understanding of your message through smart encoding and channel choices. </li></ul><ul><li>The receiver is now responsible for providing feedback. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Decoding <ul><li>Break down the message previously encoded. </li></ul><ul><li>Hopefully the elements used in the encoding will be easily translated. </li></ul><ul><li>Aim for some understanding-everyone has a unique history and may interpret things differently </li></ul>
  8. 8. Feedback <ul><li>Lets the sender know if a message was received and whether or not it was successful. </li></ul><ul><li>Is the response of the receiver. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Noise <ul><li>There is always something that can get in the way of a message. </li></ul><ul><li>Can originate from the receiver or an outside source. </li></ul><ul><li>Holds many forms: attitude, interruptions, loud sounds, etc. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Forms of Communication <ul><li>Verbal- the use of language and structure </li></ul><ul><li>Nonverbal- examples: body language, appearance, tone of voice and timing, etc. </li></ul>
