Dialogic communcation

  1. 1. Dialogic Communcation<br />How to get the most out of group meetings<br />
  2. 2. Everyone has been in that group where one person bossed around the others in order to get the job done.<br />
  3. 3. 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.<br />
  4. 4. Such a process is known as <br /> DIALOGIC COMMUNICATION<br />
  5. 5. Whereas when one person takes control and communicates, it is known as an “I-IT” method….<br />…in dialogic communication, everyone in the group communicates in an “I-THOU” method<br />
  6. 6. There are 6 characteristics of an “I-Thou” relationship, according to Richard Johanesen<br />
  7. 7. Mutual Openness <br />Everyone shares their ideas<br />
  8. 8. 2. Nonmanipulative<br /> No one tries to force their ideas down the other peoples’ throats<br />
  9. 9. 3. Recognition of Uniqueness<br />Realization that everyone’s ideas are different and can bring something new to the project<br />
  10. 10. 4. Mutual confirmationEven if someone does not have a good idea, they are given their say and taken seriously<br />
  11. 11. 5. Turning Toward<br />If the ideas presented are not the same, common ground is found and compromises are made<br />
  12. 12. 6. Nonevaluativeness<br />Group members are to see the others’ point of view, despite possible difference in opinion<br />
  13. 13. So who can use this theory??<br />Interpersonal and organizational communication<br />2.Public Relations<br />3. Anyone who is stuck in another group project.<br />
  14. 14. Have I wasted my time by reading this?<br />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.<br />
  15. 15. Is Dialogic Communication Bulletproof?<br />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.<br />
  16. 16. The Future of Dialogic Communication<br />We’ve talked a lot about this theory in regards to group projects, but it can also help companies with their public relations.<br />
  17. 17. 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.<br />
  18. 18. With the invention of social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr, companies are creating easier avenues for information to and feedback from consumers.<br />
  19. 19. 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….<br />… and that candlesticks always make a nice gift.<br />
  20. 20. …now let’s go get two.<br />*apologies to anyone who has never seen Bull Durham<br />
