Meaningful Communication for Individual Growth and Development in Organization
"Communication may not save us, but without communication we will not be saved."
William F. Berkeley
Interpersonal communication most commonly occurs in face to face situations, where we can see, hear and even touch the other person or persons. It also offers the opportunity for immediate feedback, with the result that we have a chance to structure and restructure communication based on the response for the persons we area talking to.
Communication As A Process
When we speak of communication as a process, we mean that it is on going, that is, of not confined to the actual time when people exchange words and ideas. Before we engage in any communication, we make predictions about what will occur. If we are getting ready to confront an instructor about a late paper, we might predict that the communication will be hostile; if we are looking forward to receive some one closed, we predict that the communication will be enjoyable.
