Week 1 D03 Studying the Steps of the Communication Process Which step in the communication process do you consider to be the most important Why do you think this Which of these steps is the most uncomfortable for you Why is this How might you work to change this RESPONSE 1 The most important step in the communication process is the step where the sender is aware of who the receiver is l have been in way to many conversations where l have no clue what a person is talking about because of the language or word usage on their part I was in a department store returning an item i had bought when the lady that was helping me was using slang in which i did not understand I had her repeat herself several times but still not completely understanding I asked for the manager So being aware of the receiver and using clear messages will help them understand what the message is all about I do not nd that any are uncomfortable but I do however slack on participating in giving feedback sometimes I will get a message and think there is really nothing to give feedback on but sometimes that is not the case The sender is wanting feedback I have been trying to get better at this especially since most jobs I have applied for require the base knowledge of emailing So maybe the class can help me with this If you send me a message and I do not send you feedback LET ME KNOW RESPONSE 2 The step in the communication process that I would consider to be the most important is choosing the appropriate channel There are some messages that should only be delivered in a facetoface format If such a message were delivered by phone call or email then the receiver could develop a bad impression of the sender This is especially true when the message contains information that is negative Choosing the correct channel can say a lot about the message and the sender before the information has been conveyed The step that I am most uncomfortable with is decoding Usually I will have to read a message several times before I fully understand what the sender is trying to say I have worked to get better at this by breaking down the messages and trying to understand them one line or sentence at a time I have been somewhat successful from doing this However I have noticed that senders who are better at encoding make it easier for the receiver to decode RESPONSE 3 It may be a bit odd but I think the receiver is the most important aspect in the communication process If there is no receiver it is kind of like that jokeif a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound So in theory again if there is no one for you to communicate with the sender is basically talking to him or herself I think most of us would agree that the feedback is the most uncomfortable due to its personal nature but it can be the most rewarding As other classmates have stated most feedback is positive in nature even if it is corrective in some form As with most things people struggle with correction and discipline are the hardest to overcome so if the trainingfeedback is done correctly most individuals will be receptive to it and honestly try to implement or change as a result of it RESPONSE 4 I think the most important steps in the communication process is interpretation Understanding what the sender is trying to say and being able to interpret the message is Vital Often a message email text or even phone message can be very vague Then you on the end as the receiver are trying to see what the sender really wants you to know It is so important in the communication process to make sure the message you are conveying is taken in the correct form It is so easy also to offend or give misguiding information when you do not take time to read and listen to how your message sounds It is so uncomfortable when I get information and I have to go back and forth to ask the sender what they meant Usually this occurs when their are misprints typing errors or wrong information submitted I try to change this by informing the sender that I am sorry but I cannot understand your request Usually they will correct the misinterpretation and all is well RESPONSE 5 The message is the most important step in the communication process According to our text the idea thought feeling or opinion to be communicated Each step is important but I feel the message is the key or the reason we communicate to begin with Making a point or sharing an idea is what communication is about Receiving is my hardest step to deal with My nerves and temper will sometimes affect my ability to process or comprehend the message When my DM walks me through the store I won39t know how to process the information which leads to some awkward conversations Part of communication especially in the business world is being prepared to deal with the numerous messages being relayed through all of the different channels Being well read and educated in the areas where you will be challenged will enable you to better communicate
