Transcript of Interpersonal Communication

By James
Hargreaves Interpersonal
Communication Interpersonal communication can be transferred
and received through multiple methods
such as Verbal Exchanges, Signing and lip reading. Methods Of
Interpersonal Communication Verbal exchange is the primary way we communicate this can range from guttural noises such as grunts or “hmm” to universal languages such as English. Verbal exchange requires all involved communicators to understand or relate to the words or sounds made by the speaker. In a Workplace there is usually a universal language however if there are any occasions like foreign relations an employee who can communicate in a different language is highly valued. Being multi lingual or having a basic grasp of multiple languages or just to be fluent in one is a key skill as verbal exchange is our primary form of communication. This is why verbal exchange is highly valued it is a brilliant way to be recognized as a public speaker opening up promotion paths as an employee. Verbal
Exchange Signing:
Signing is most commonly used for the hearing impaired as it allows communication purely through signaled hand gestures, although body language is recognized as well. This is another useful communication skill and another valued attribute for employment however it is less likely to come to use unless you are looking to be employed for a specialist job dedicated to signing. Signing
Lip Reading Active engagement is the use of communication to conform that you have understood the message sent this can be through multiple ways such as; Nodding, Summarizing and paraphrasing.
Active engagement allows you to convey your understanding of the covered subject this could be from someone saying “are you ready” and you just replying with a nod. Active

Lip reading is the ability to make an educated guess as to what the talking person is saying by watching and identifying patterns in their mouth as they talk. This can be useful when there is a impaired person with a talking disorder or even if you yourself are impaired through hearing. Introduction

Interpersonal skills are the basic communication skills which are often noticed and recognized by employers when leadership positions are considered. They are the basic communication forms which can range from simple verbal communication to body language. Summarizing

Summarizing can further help to show that you have been present and observant when communicating as you cover the points bought up in a conversation this allows the speaker to know that you have understood and are confident in what has been said. Paraphrasing:

When used in interpersonal communication paraphrasing can allow the speaker to see that you have understood what has been said as you can put it into your own words. This is another way of showing your understanding without just repeating what they said. Distractions

Distractions are similar to background noise but they can come from physical contact from another person or a notification from a mobile device or computer. These must be taken into account when communicating to keep the conversation flowing. Lack of Concentration

Concentration is required for a conversation to take place this means a lack of concentration can easily break the conversation. Lack of concentration can be due to distractions or background noise. Types Of Question Open Question:
