What are the components of effective communication?
Communication begins with a person or organization (the sender) that has information to communicate to another person or organization (the receiver). The sender chooses the way (communication channel) the information will be transmitted to the receiver. Before sending the message, the send decides the form in which the information will be sent; Text, spoken words, pictures. Preparing the information to be communicated is called (encoding). The receiver obtains the information from the channel and interprets it for understanding (decoding). To be sure that the communication achieved the desired result, the send needs to have a response from the receiver (feedback). If the receiver understood the information and responds in a way the send wanted, communication was effective. If the receiver does not respond or acts in an unexpected way, communication failed.
