Throughout the semester my partner and I have learned more about each other such as our history and our plans for the future. We have also discovered how each of us like to communicate differently. The main things I have noticed is that every conversation is unique and they are not all going to need my advice or strong probing. By watching others, I have noticed this same trend. Each week tactics are changing depending on the situation.
Communication serves as a critical first impression when talking to professional figures. Growing up a basketball player, I have come across many adults who obtain a higher authority in athletics. My goal has always been to play college basketball and play professionally. Talking with these high level figures is very important to my success of becoming both. A time I communicated strongly was the first time I talked to my college recruiter. The effectiveness of my words helped to get my point across so that my recruiter could understand me in the manner as I intended. The conversation we had was very professional and the usage of my vocabulary and body language enhanced throughout the conversation. He was able to understand my intentions behind what I delivered to him so that we could have an ongoing conversation. Communicating with my recruiter showed him that I was capable to talk to him and others over him without having a mediocre conversation.
Thank you for your interesting statement, “the qualitative approach to developing and using scenarios is intended to provoke insights through conversation and dialogue about the difficult issues facing the organization, and the often-opposing viewpoints on the issues that exist within the organization” (Chermack, 2006).
For setting aside the time to speak with me, even if our conversations tend to occur sporadically and go on for hours at a time. I have learned so much from you: from self-confidence and assurance to who I am as a person and what that means for my view of the world. It may not seem like it, but I have grown so much within the almost six months (whoa) we have communicated and worked together. You give wonderful advice and never make me feel less than worthy of being here working alongside all of you amazingly talented and intelligent people. You have gotten to know me so well that, I don’t know if you have even noticed, you
Within module 3, we covered several important leadership concepts that will assist in my personal growth and development as a leader. The concept that stands out to me as the most important is Knowing Myself within Interpersonal Communication, but specifically monitoring my own actions or Self-Monitoring. I feel that self-monitoring is the most important concept from this module because in a general sense, the use or misuse of self monitoring can add or detract from the meaning of a message while communicating. I have come to find that sometimes while communicating, I have terrible nonverbal signals and poor language and these faults can greatly influence a message that I am trying to pass in a negative way. In order to have more effective
“To effectively communicate, we must realize that we are all different in the way we perceive the world and use this understanding as a guide to our communication with others” (Robbins, n.d.). When talking about context, one of the eight essential components of communication, it must be understood that the way the message is sent across is heavily influenced by not only the environment at the time of the communicating, but also the mindset of the audience, or receiver. Not every single person shares the same outlook or opinion of a given topic, and it is up to the source to use the context of the communication process to their advantage. To better understand context, there are five major components of it that each play an important role
When I signed up for COM 102, I was told that it was more of a listening class than a speaking class. I was already happy with not having to present a speech every month, but I found that group discussion in lab was much easier for me to speak. I can honestly say that I really enjoyed and took this course seriously. I knew that they were no exams, but I still wanted to take every note down because it was going to help me evaluate myself. I remember on the first day of class I didn’t even know what interpersonal communication was, but I’m glad I got to explore this world of communication.
