This week the focus of your studies is on communication. We communicate all the time at home, at work, and at school. Managers must be mindful of what types of communication types they are using and if they are the most effective.
First, read Chapters 12 & 13 in the text.
Next, please watch the following video clips from the lab:
Chapter 12: Concept Clip: Communication Process
Chapter 12: Concept Clip: Up & Down Communication
Find a YouTube or other movie clip, dated within the last 8 weeks, that shows two or more people communicating (from a tv show, video, news, a movie, etc.) What type of communication is it? Why do you think so? Was it effective? Would a different form have been more effective? Why or why not?
Review a minimum of two of your classmate’s posts and respond with additional insights, information, questions, or links to more information on communication types and/or examples. Do you agree with their assessment of the type of communication occurring in their video and if it’s most appropriate? Why or why not? Your responses should be academic in nature and linked to research and management topics discussed this week rather than personal stories of shopping with the company they chose for example.
