A. Communication

Is the process of conveying information in such a way that the message is received and understood.

There are two categories: Verbal and Non-Verbal.

  • Verbal communication involves the use of actual WORDS and is facilitated with ACTIVE LISTENING
    • Active Listening- A good listener is an active listener who gives the speaker some feedback which lets the speaker know the message is getting through to the listener.
      • Examples: A smile, nod, or even a comment.
    • Passive Listening
      • May hear the spoken words but not the meaning of the words. Does not respond to the speaker in any way. Speaker is unsure if message is being received.
