  2. 2. INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION OUTLINE  Introduction  Define interpersonal communication  Identification of an overarching goal (OAG)  Definition of enlarging the conversation  Description of how my background and behavioral blend influence conversation (positively and negatively)  Defining potential barriers in my interpersonal context  How am I going to deal with each of my potential barriers  Identify and provide solutions to nose pollution both internal and external  Plan of action for my overarching goal 2
  3. 3. WHAT IS INTERPERSONAL COMMUNICATION? The type or kind of communication that happens when the people involved talk and listen in ways that maximize the presence of the personal (Stewart, 2012, p. 36). Note: When communication emphasizes the persons involved rather than just their roles or stereotypical characteristics, interpersonal communication is happening. In other words when communicators give and receive or talk and listen in ways that emphasize their uniqueness, unmeasureability, responsiveness, reflectiv 3 eness, and addressability then the communication between them is interpersonal.
  4. 4. OVERARCHING MASTER GOAL It is difficult to understand others until we learn to listen effectively to ourselves (Burley- Allen, 1995, p.82). My overarching goal is to become more aware of my internal thought process which result in negative conflict, feelings of frustration, stress and unworthy of what God has for me.4

  6. 6. ENLARGING MY CONVERSATION CONT. According to Petersen (2007) our stomachs expand with overload of mixed emotions They press the heart into bricks in our chest, sending our relating abilities south. The upward expansion flattens our brains, forcing our thinking, hearing and seeing off kilter. When our brains are flat, we can’t hear, see, think or act sensibly. This causes our systems to get out of whack which affects how we communicate. (Petersen, 2007, p.23) 6
