How Communication Works

How Communication Works?

How communication works? When one person begins a verbal dialogue with another, a communication cycle has begun. Just speaking a language does not indicate communication. A person can stand in the middle of the room and speak out loud, but if no one is around to hear him or dialogue with him, there is no communication taking place. How Communication Works?

When the speaker is delivering a speech to a large group of people, the term “subject” then becomes the term “audience” – indicating a larger group. You can still measure the effectiveness...
