Communication decreases with size and structure. Networks:  Wheel = information flows to and from one central member of the group.  Chain = members communicate with each other in a predetermined sequence.  Circle = group members communicate with others who are similar to them in experiences, beliefs, areas of expertise, background, office location, or even where they sit when the group meets.  All-channel = Found in teams and is characterized by high levels of communication. Every team member communicates with every other team member. Feedback=reality testing & new input Push for feedback:  Pay attention  Be a good Listener  Be empathetic >>Listen first to understand…then start the process over if you think the two of you are not on the same page. Keys for Good Feedback:  Don’t let your receiver repeat the same words you used.  Watch for visual signs to see if the receiver appears confused  Have the receiver give an example using your ideas  If future actions is needed, agree on a firm date for follow up Noise= anything that interferes with this process >Noise can be internal >Noise can be external The Perception Process Reality Selection Perception= is the process through which people select, organize, and interpret sensory input to give meaning and order to the world around them.
