In a 250300 word response identify what techniques you can implement to improve the likelihood that your communications will be received and understood as you intended Can you identify and reduce the likelihood of barriers interfering with the communication Give examples Use at least one resource to support your key points Communication is one part sending one part receiving and one part analyzing a message or providing feedback about the message produced Perhaps the more important component to ensuring communication is successful is burdened by the sender of the message This person plays an active role in the communication process first and foremost by determining who the target audience is This determination is important to enable the sender to understand and therefore become empathetic to the target audience Coupling this empathy with the realization of any communication barriers the ability to observe nonverbal cues and ultimately having the ability to ensure the message is clearly communicated the sender is armed with the correct tools to accomplish proper communication Baack 2012 These items are crucial for the sender to understand and overcome to successfully communicate his or her message The communication barriers that are typically encountered include transmission barriers individual differences or situational factors all of which induce the need for the sender to examine a multitude of potential threats or hurdles in the communication pipeline For example one individual difference may be age which would produce a barrier in how the message is received if an older sender is communicating to a younger receiver using similes that may be lost on the younger generation This generational gap could also potentially cause a second type of barrier that of slang which is a transmission barrier An example may include the older sender speaking about a project that is groovy at which point the younger receiver may have no idea what adjective the sender is using Finally one of may situational barriers usually revolves around the mood of either party such as an overly angered sender being unable to properly communicate due to emotional stress B aack 2012 These factors all play a big part of the communication process however do not account for the totality of the process Just as important of the sender being able to gauge which barriers are present how to empathize with the receiver and observe any nonverbal cues that represent loss of interest in the subject the receiver of the message has responsibilities toward ensuring success in the communication process as well Once the message is sent the receiver should be able to actively listen to the message as well as seek clarification for any misunderstood concepts Most of these responsibilities have to do with body posture eye contact and the ability to remain undistracted during the message receiving process A third and final part of the communication process involves a backandforth interaction of sharing ideas and feedback about the messages sent and received usually referred to as the transaction mode of communication B aack 2012 This send and receive and send back type of dialogue may often include frequent interruptions of thought ow completions of one39s sentences by the other and eventually a clear understanding of the message being discussed As discussed all of these techniques are necessary to open the channels of communication and importantly each person involved in the communication process should assume both roles of sender and receiver throughout the discussion The ability to know one39s audience identify barriers empathize with how messages may be received actively and intently listen and provide feedback or question confusing concepts will ultimately induce a good arena to communicate within One example is in a personal setting when a concept is being communicated to my wife from me The necessity for me to understand how my wife will hear my message how I would feel if the message were directed at me and to abstain from delivering the message while I am frustrated or angered are all ways for me to increase the likelihood of successful communication However unless my wife is able to provide me with her complete attention and ask questions when she is not sure of my intent the communication process will suffer greatly Reference Baack D 2012 Management communication San Diego CA Bridgepoint Education Inc Retrieved from httpscontentashfordedubooksAUBUS600122
